We are on the lookout for a natural-born creative to make an impact on our team and clients. We are excited about the prospect a fresh perspective will bring to our design services. We’re hoping that what you possess in design talent, you match with flexibility, initiative and drive.
ninetyblack was established in 1997. We are a Taupo-based design, web and marketing company - small town yes, big on everything else like the lake, the mountains, the forests, the friendly people, the lifestyle, the bike trails, the coffee... and at ninetyblack, big on talent and experience – so we’re looking for the right fit.
The ninetyblack team and culture you're stepping in to? Well, we're serious about what we do but we don't take ourselves too seriously. Our entire purpose is shaped by our values - one goal - to get S.H.I.T done (Successfully, Honestly, with Integrity, and as a Team). Work (hard work) is important, but so is life, so built into our culture is a philosophy of maintaining work/life balance as much as possible. But it’s not all rainbows, so we’re not going to lie – our industry (design, web, marketing & publishing) is about high standards, deadlines, and the normal pressures that come with meeting those two factors. Are you up for it?
We are looking for a polished, innovative and ambitious designer. Someone with 3-5 years agency experience – if not that long, a compelling enough portfolio to win us over.
You will complete a variety of design work – predominantly print design. From time to time though, if it is within your skillset, web/digital design opportunities will exist and would be an advantage.
What kind of work can you expect?
Promotional design across a variety of industries
Corporate design e.g. annual reports
Sole account management – key person
Small jobs…. Gotta help out on those little jobs
Publishing/layout; magazines, maps, guides
What do we expect?
Excellent grasp of Creative Suite applications e.g indesign, photoshop, illustrator
Confidence in Microsoft Word and Powerpoint
A valid visa or NZ resident, citizen status
