Compliment your design studies with one day a week, on the job, design work.
I’m on the hunt for a junior designer, to help support my design studio.
Great for me, but it’s also fantastic news for you. You see when I was at Uni I would have loved the opportunity to do some design work in the ‘real world’ to compliment my studies. This would have given me some practical insight into the day to day challenges that we are faced with as designers.
Whilst studying we get to learn the theory of design and apply this to project based outcomes but whilst working we get to apply this theory to actual clients, working with real budgets and real results in the marketplace.
Why work at psyborg®?
We are a small boutique design firm so everything we do together is hands on and directly connected to our clients. I have been working this way for over 10 years now, keeping my business lean and agile so as to remain directly connected to all of my clients.
That means no middle-men, just a client and designer relationship, but don’t take my word for it please read my client testimonials for their take on how I work directly with them.
At psyborg®, we have helped business thrive & grow through creativity & design thinking. We love to establish good relationships with our clients so we can help them express their brand across all visual communication channels in turn empowering them to be perceived as innovators, leaders and game changers.
You could also be a part of this process. Learn more about psyborg® by watching our 2 minute video and be sure to apply below if you are interested in working with me.
