Build great technology that actually matters.

Overview

We are looking for a Graphic Designer who will enhance the Simprints brand identity. You are passionate about design, show meticulous attention to detail, and can harness the power of visual expression to communicate effectively with a broad audience. From one day to the next you might be creating our marketing materials, transforming highly complex concepts into simple graphics, or infusing our brand identity into all of our internal and external communications. 

What are your responsibilities?

  • Define Simprints’ design principles and requirements according to our brand values.
  • Understand our target clients and their needs to develop innovative communications strategies.
  • Lead the creation of our visual content marketing strategy.

  • Collaborate with business, research, and engineering teams to create clear infographics and visualisations of complex technical and legal concepts.
  • Design eye-catching icons, typography, and graphics to pixel perfection.
  • Test and validate design concepts with a wide range of stakeholders.

Where is this role going?

We are looking for 3-month interns who are interested in potentially taking on a long-term role in our team. This is a great opportunity for someone with the right skillset and cultural fit to join a fast-paced, start-up environment from its early days and take significant responsibility from day one. If you thrive with us and stay for the long-term, you’ll lead future design initiatives and grow your team.  Simprints focuses on taking complex technology and making it available to some of the most challenging environments on earth, and we are looking for a creative designer to help tell our story.
