Description

**Please submit a portfolio to be considered for this role, showcasing your strong layout and typography skills** 
Dyson is a creative technology company with a global and iconic identity. And we’re growing fast. More products. New categories. More visual communications. Our mission is simple: solve problems others ignore with exciting new technologies that defy convention. We must communicate with brevity and present ourselves in the right way, to protect our identity and build our hard-earned reputation. Every point of contact we have with our public, and with other Dyson people, must reflect our values and philosophy. Perfectly.
The Enterprise Communications team is responsible for presenting Dyson as an entity, to both external and internal audiences in a consistent, relevant and appropriate way. We work alongside the global PR and Internal Comms teams to support our Executive team, and our core business functions to create communications, spanning a range of channels, which reflect our values, philosophy and engineering heritage. We also work closely with the charitable side of our organisation which invests in engineering education and the local community.

Accountabilities

We need a Junior designer to help creatively support our new university, the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, the James Dyson Foundation, and the James Dyson Award. You will be responsible for helping define and protect how we visually present these parts of our organisation, creating clear and engaging communications, and professional templates for documents/forms/presentations/intranets. We’re looking for technically-able designers who can execute from day one. You’ll need an excellent understanding of grids and type, and an ability to understand and interpret information in order to communicate it in the most appropriate way.
You should be enthusiastic, take pride in your work. We’ll be setting the benchmark for graphic design at Dyson, so everything we do has to be perfect. You should be comfortable voicing your opinions and be able to articulate your ideas – confidently and intelligently present your work, as you will be working directly with senior stakeholders throughout Dyson. You will need to be tenacious and resilient, while maintaining a positive attitude.

  • A good knowledge of design production, with experience in creating artwork for print
