    This job requires me to manage creative projects ensuring they meet clients’ and project requirements. I also have to take on designs during the final stages of development to ensure accuracy and prepare them for print or digital publication. The role also requires a lot of project management experience with the main aim to ensure print and digital designs meet high quality standards.
