  • Play a key role in the eMedia team by contributing to brainstorming sessions, offering ideas and feedback, and sharing design techniques.
  • Constantly push the boundaries of design and proactively seek to introduce innovative design concepts across the group, whilst ensuring design best practice and consistency.

  • Expert Adobe Creative Suite skills (particularly Photoshop and Illustrator).
  • Good PHP skills and experience with WordPress.
  • Strong understanding of front-end development across multiple browsers and mobile devices.
  • Experience of working from wireframes, as well as creating prototypes using Axure, Mockflow or similar.
  • Solid understanding of the latest web technologies, including HTML5/CSS3/Javascript (using appropriate fall-backs for non-compliant browsers).
  • Appropriate design degree or equivalent qualification.
  • Attention to detail and accuracy in both written and spoken English.
  • Ability to effectively manage multiple projects to tight deadlines.
  • Your portfolio needs to include examples of:
