KISSLabs is full service design agency in Wellington, New Zealand,  laser focused on building brands people love. Simple by design and progressive by nature.

About the Role

We’re looking for a full time designer with 2+ years’ experience to join our tight-knit team based in central Wellington. The ideal candidate will have a background in digital design and feel comfortable working across branding, graphic and web design projects.

From Wellington to Hong Kong, we work with a number of interesting and innovative clients. We take pride in our designers having ownership of their work, and are looking for a candidate who feels confident in their design sensibilities, can communicate directly with stakeholders and considers themselves a team player.

Ideally, you will have experience using no-code applications such as Webflow or are willing to learn on the job, adding a highly sought after skill-set to your design repertoire.

Key Requirements:

  • Based in Wellington, New Zealand.

  • Intermediate design abilities (2+ years minimum industry experience)

  • Comfortable creating design work for brand, graphic and web.

  • Takes ownership of their work, and develops working relationships with clients.

  • Collaborates with team members, and is a respectful communicator.

  • Eagerness to learn new skills and technologies, including Webflow.

Communication

You have a valued opinion and actively contribute to team and client discussions, and do not rely on others to take the lead. You’re able to present creative ideas in an engaging and confident manner, and can justify your design choices when necessary.

You communicate regularly and clearly with colleagues - keeping them well informed as to your progress, and any potential issues regarding deadlines before they occur. You proactively seek to address issues, working closely with other departments to help resolve them.

Planning and Organisation

You plan specific tasks that are clear and realistic, so you can achieve particular goals/objectives. You never miss deadlines and communicate your progress to others in the event delays may occur.

You are able to organize both yourself and others. You can plan ahead, anticipating any issues or bottlenecks, and take appropriate action in terms of flagging your concerns to senior team members (both in creative and account management).

You’re able to follow projects through to completion, and you can respond to unforeseen issues and prioritize accordingly.


Creativity

You participate in helping to generate original ideas and designs.

You challenge and question the norm to see if there’s another way of doing something.

You’re able to create and execute new concepts to a high standard based on your understanding of emerging client and market insights.

Teamwork

You value the views and opinions of others and encourage team working and cooperation. You share experiences and lessons you’ve learnt with others.

You keep your colleagues informed and keep them up-to-date regarding your progress. You elevate any issues, with a point of view, when necessary.

You read all the way to the bottom. Nice. Does this sound like the role for you? Show us what you’ve got, and tell us a bit about yourself… We’d love to hear from you
