Would you like to Join the Jackson Daly team?

Here at Jackson Daly, we are leaders in luxury branding and graphic design with clients across the high-end hospitality, residential and entertainment sectors. Thanks to some exciting recent project wins, we are looking to expand our business and open a new studio for our wayfinding and signage practice in the heart of Leeds.

We are currently seeking:

Mid-weight wayfinding designer to join our Leeds office

Junior wayfinding designer to join our Leeds office

 

 


Mid-weight Wayfinding Graphic Designer

Location : Leeds
Salary : Undisclosed 
Level : Midweight
Type : Full Time

How to Apply
Please email recruitment@jacksondaly.com with your CV, portfolio and salary expectations. Successful candidates will be contacted for an initial first stage interview conducted by video call. Second stage interviews will then be conducted in-person on-site in Leeds.

Introduction
We are seeking a mid-weight wayfinding designer to join this new satellite location. Based from our Leeds studio, you will be working alongside the dynamic Northern team on a daily basis, while remaining well-connected to our main London office.

You will be part of a small but mighty multi-disciplinary creative group, working together to develop wayfinding strategies and signage designs that capture our client’s ambitions. As the core of our projects are based in the built environment, a background within this sector is a plus.

Your Day-to-Day
Our Leeds studio is a new venture that we are building with flexibility in mind. We operate a hybrid working model, with our core in-person days as Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Additionally, we offer flexible working hours to suit individual needs.

Alongside the Directors and design team you will be working on wayfinding projects from the initial concept and research phase through to detailed drawing and delivery. Each project requires an understanding of space, place and the ability to develop navigational solutions for a range of users. No two of our wayfinding projects are the same so your day will be varied as you work on a range of projects across unique global locations.

Ideally, you will be an expert in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and PhotoShop, with strong graphic design skills, especially typography and layout. If you are able to bring 3D skills for modelling and rendering (in any software) this is a plus, and experience with CAD, BIM and Revit even more so.

We’re seeking someone with excellent communication skills, both online and in-person.

Key Skills

Essential

  • High level use of Adobe Creative Suite, including Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop
  • Degree in Graphic Design, Information Design or a related subject
  • Experience with wayfinding projects
  • Strong typographic and layout skills
  • Ability to interpret and apply branding design guidelines in creative ways
  • Good communication skills both online and in-person

Desirable

  • Experience of 3D modelling software and rendering
  • CAD, Revit and BIM use
  • Previous experience working alongside architects and industrial designers

Attributes

  • Enthusiasm for wayfinding and user experience

You will be part of a small but mighty multi-disciplinary creative group, working together to develop wayfinding strategies and signage designs that capture our client’s ambitions.

Ideally, you will have graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, Information Design, or a related subject. We are open to applications from other course graduates with a portfolio of work that demonstrates your graphic design skills.
