Great company to gain key skills in my field of work as well as business knowledge
Junior Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Leeds, West Yorkshire – 5 June 2017
A typical working day involves designing work for a variety of purposes, including; email communications, posters, agendas, presentations, logos, illustrations and graphics.
Whilst working here I have developed my skills further in Adobe CC, meaning I now have an extremely strong knowledge, in particular, using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
My manager is very supporting and has helped me develop my skills not only in design software, but also in my knowledge of the business. This meant I could create much more impactful work as I understood the message behind each piece of work.
The hardest part of the job was getting to grips with the business knowledge and working in line with 5 different brand guidelines. As the company is so big, it was difficult to know who the correct person to speak to was. However once I got to know more colleagues the easier it was to find the correct information, meaning I could work more efficiently.
The most enjoyable part of the job is having so much responsibility and delivering work for Senior Stakeholders. A majority of the time this work is for the purpose of gaining the company business, so I feel like i'm really making a difference.
