£25,000 - £30,000 + bonus + pension + 27 days holiday + free on-site gym
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.
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.
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.
