DTP ARTIST / PACKAGING DESIGNER

Job description

We are a multi-awarded creative agency doing what we love, and that's building brands that can top their potential, inspire people, and add to this world's goodness. One of our business cornerstones is brand and packaging design. We work with clients market-leaders like Unilever, Lidl Hellas, Athenian Brewery, Sarantis Group, SNFCC, and more, creating impactful local and international brands.

We seek a skilled DTP artist, able tο deliver top-notch packaging design artworks that can make a difference and add value to our creative team. With your help, we aim to scale our end-to-end packaging design workforce and our ability to produce more exceptional packaging. 

Sounds challenging? Yes, it is! This is not your typical next design job. We are looking for a "design scientist" with an eye for detail, able to implement, improve and finalize a packaging project. It's a qualified job indeed. 

Sounds good so far? Read on. 🤓


About you

You have at least 3 years of work experience in a design agency and a portfolio of produced print/packaging design projects. You speak Greek and live in Athens or willing to relocate here.

The journey of a design concept transforming into a final tangible product excites you. You care about all aspects of packaging design always looking to nail down the details. You don't settle for anything less than excellent.

Your punctual and consistent work ethic and your flawless organizational skills follow your name. You can prioritize tasks to deliver on-time and operate efficiently under strict deadlines even under time pressure. Your answer to the question "Can you jump into a project, get acquainted with the design concept, and implement it quickly?" is: "hold my beer".🤘

Managing the communication with third parties, clients, and the creative team to implement a project is easy-peasy for you. You embrace having the ownership of a project and the openness to give & receive feedback, ideas, and inspiration. Your drive to crack the problem and proactive work makes you stand out.

Your day-to-day
Imagine yourself in an easy-going environment among people that care and enjoy what they do. You will be working closely with the creative teams having a significant role in the outcome of the packaging design work we produce, in many inspiring and challenging projects. Brainstorming and feedback on various corners of our office (and on top of other peoples' screens) are on the every-day calendar. The fuss in the middle of the day -when everyone is unpacking tappers of homemade food (or efood)- is part of our daily rituals: having lunch altogether.

• Develop packaging design concepts into more SKUs/product lines
• Communicate with clients and suppliers to receive feedback
