Due to a rapid increase in workload we are seeking Junior to Senior Packaging Artworkers to create extensive artworks for food and non-food packaging and sales material, either permanent or freelance.

For mid to senior level Packaging Artworkers, experience in setting up packaging artworks is essential (min. 2-3 years) and the ideal Packaging Artworker candidate is highly technical and possesses strong repro, print production and colour management experience.

The deadlines of some of our projects can be very demanding, therefore you must prove to be highly precise, able to work fast, show the ability to concentrate on individual projects for long periods of time, but also be able to continuously change between smaller projects.

As a Packaging Artworker you must be Mac literate and should have a firm grasp of Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop CS5.

A lot of our client correspondence, briefings and copy instructions are in German, therefore knowledge of German would be advantageous but not essential.

Duties and Responsibilities of the Packaging Designer(dependent on level)include:
  • Set up completely new packaging artworks for labels, boxes, sleeves, foils, tubes, lids and outer cases, for various different print processes
  • Make changes on already existing artworks
  • Understand and execute all internal artwork briefings correctly and efficiently
  • Create Photoshop backgrounds and set up DCS files
  • Ensure that your artworks comply with all relevant artwork and brand guidelines
  • Ensure that your artworks are precise and comply with our strict internal quality standards
  • Liaise directly with all Account Managers
