          Senior Graphic Designer

          Mindshare UK

          May 2018
          • London, United Kingdom
          • Full Time
          • Working across Marketing, New Business, NEO, & supporting the wider company. New Business responsibilities involved designing pitch collateral, pitch theatre, and presentation design, which directly contributed to Mindshare winning new clients such as Red Bull and KFC. Working with the New Business Director, I re-defined how the creative team are utilised by creating a briefing process, timeline, & establishing ongoing expectations. I continued to project manage this as well as all incoming tasks and team workload. Marketing responsibilities included designing all internal & external communications, social media, and all events including the large-scale annual Mindshare Huddle event (which included invites, emails, lanyards, social media, marketing, video, and vinyl/ signage). I was also the lead designer for Human Resources and Culture, including adhoc projects around mental health, diversity, social events, and employee wellbeing, which I really enjoyed. Lastly, I managed all relationships with external printing companies, and mentored the Junior Designer.
