SOURCING - Graphic Designer - Contract

0 people like this description

We are looking for a graphic designer who can take hold, own and ignite the creative content on our social channels during Rugby World Cup 2015. The candidate must be reactive to how the tournament unfolds, creatively answer to fans and be ahead of the game. It is essential that you join the social journey, designing content that is relevant, engaging and original. This will be an extremely busy period with rugby taking centre stage, on a global level, so it is imperative that our content is eye catching, interesting and shareable and that you keep on the ball!

Content:

The design work will sit within our digital channels and on our new social hub on englandrugby.com (name tbc). The creative should adopt our England Rugby brand although there is scope to flex the 'look and feel' here. Ideally the candidate will have worked with other sporting/corporate guidelines and understand the do's and dont's. We are looking for a variety of design treatments to maintain the interest e.g. image, typographic, infographic etc. Time is the key so you must be able to work quickly and push out content as things happen. It is encouraged to prep design work before the games allowing stats/info to be added in later during real-time. Predictions, typical game events and milestones will be briefed in advance in order to get content ready.

Experience:

Credible industry experience with a design degree/qualification. Excellent knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite in particular Photoshop and Illustrator. Expert on the Mac. A clear understanding of the social media language and landscape. A passion for sport and a good knowledge of rugby and its rules is a clear advantage. Be prepared to work in a team and autonomously.

Location:

Based in RFU offices at Twickenham. Sit with both the in-house creative studio and the digital team. During games will work very closely with our Social Media Manager. Must be flexible on hours including weekend work.
