Description

Dyson is growing. Fast. More products. New categories. More information. We are a global technology company with a global brand. Managing the way we communicate with our message internally with other Dyson people is essential to protecting and developing our reputation. You will be responsible for engaging the wider Dyson business with the new Research, Design and Development (RDD) projects.

Market Overview

Dyson HQ, is tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside, our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology). 

The growing campus is the heartbeat of Dyson. Benefitting from an onsite Gym, sports pitch, multiple cafes and a nature walk. Over 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

Bringing brand new technology to life – and to the world – requires inventive marketing. Clarity of message. Vast reach. And engagement in more innovative ways. Working closely with our engineers, our marketeers develop powerful claims through scientific research. And from traditional channels to cutting-edge events, retail experiences, social media and PR, we seize every chance to tell the Dyson story.

Accountabilities

The Brand Graphics team is responsible for helping deliver a vastly improved understanding of Dyson’s meaning, internally and externally focused. As a brand guardian you’ll need to offer coaching and training to others (both internal and external) to ensure that our visual identity is present correctly and consistently. Your scope of work will be broad and give you a great breadth of insight across the business. This will cover areas such as:  

  • Creating, designing and presenting communications to engage the wider Dyson teams with RDD projects.
  • Leading the creative tone definition for RDD and building an internal reputation of our new technology and challenges.
  • Creating internal business templates for documents/ forms/presentations/emails

Reporting to the Head of Brand Graphics (who reports to our Creative Director), you’ll find satisfaction in taking responsibility for delivering market leading execution of Dyson’s internal and external communications and visual identity. The Brand Graphics team set the benchmark for graphic design at Dyson, so everything we do has to be perfect.

Skills

As a Middleweight Designer you'll quickly develop an understanding of Dyson, its engineering ethos and visual identity and have good judgement as to what makes good Dyson communication and what doesn’t. A strong technical understanding of typography and grid systems is essential. As is an understanding of information hierarchy to deliver complex messages through clear, and balanced composition. You'll have a keen eye for creating engaging visual assets (photography, film, animation) and a belief in the practice of ‘doing more with less’.

You will have a degree or equivalent in Graphic Design,  strong industry experience and you must be an expert in – InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. You must also understand design production – with solid experience of artworking and pre-press.

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a company bonus and 27 days annual leave. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, flexible working hours, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
