We’ve hired!
We’ve found a new creative to join our team!

We received an amazing number of applications – which made for a tough challenge to narrow down just one talented junior designer.

Having viewed some impressive and well thought-out applications and portfolios, our faith in the quality of young designers graduating from colleges has also been restored.

We wish to thank everyone who applied. It may be a big world – but we’re sure there’s a special creative space out there for us all. Oh, and if it’s ok we would like to hold on to your applications. . .  just in case even more exciting opportunities come our way.

Cheers,
The Salty Team

// APPLICATIONS CLOSED //

Overview

We know it can be difficult to get a foot in the design industry door. As a new designer you have loads of passion but little experience. And how can you get that experience if no one is willing to give you a go!

Here at Salt we believe the right team member is more likely someone with the right attitude rather than the perfect portfolio – so we’re looking for a junior designer to join our team.

Essential skills

  • The right attitude
  • Tertiary qualification
  • Willingness to learn
  • Ability to take direction (and do something with it!)
  • JPEG, PMS, EPS, GIF, PNG, CMYK, AI, PDF, OT, OK, DPI, PPI all mean something to you!
  • Not shy to ask questions – the more questions you ask the more answers you’ll discover!
  • Willingness to learn
  • Tough skin – ability to take critical, constructive feedback and learn from it
  • Strong knowledge of Adobe Creative CS – Indesign is a MUST, Illustrator a close second and Photoshop right behind
  • Willingness to learn

Who are you?

  • Perhaps your portfolio consists mainly of assignments – but the creative process is obvious and spot on!
  • You’re obsessed with all things design including social media, digital marketing and editorial design trends
  • ‘Keen’ is your middle name
  • You are passionate about typography, layout and design skills
  • You love the creative challenge of working within specific guidelines and under strong direction of a more senior design professional
  • You’re goal is to become an InDesign genius, an Illustrator whiz and a Photoshop guru!
  • You communicate your ideas and present well to any audience (eg. designers, clients, your mum/cat!)
  • You’re demanding of yourself
  • Your sense of humour is apparent (just make sure you laugh at the Boss’s jokes even when they’re stinkers!)

About us

  • We’ll provide a positive and creative environment where you can learn and develop as a designer.
  • At Salt, we use a very collaborative process which involves input, feedback, critique and direction from ALL team members. We believe it’s a process which results in even better results for our clients!
  • Our studio is located in Fortitude Valley with access to public transport and (limited) street parking.
  • Please don’t just flick us your application. Do some research first. Find out a little more about us. Read our blog, check out the work we do from our website. Then really consider how you can stand out from the crowd of creative newbies! Make sure your CV tells us who you are and what you can bring to Salt. We understand you may not have any real-life design samples. Just make sure we can see your potential – how you research, design and execute your ideas. And tell us about WHO you are – What drives you? What motivates you? Why you want to be a designer? And especially why you want to join Salt?

We certainly do NOT want to see any standard CVs. If you think that will get a job in our industry – please think again! The creativity you show us by how you apply for this position is part of the challenge! So prove to us you have read this advert and know what it takes!
