Graphic designer Duties & responsibilities
Bradley McGurk is a branding and marketing agency that works with both small
and large companies. They partner with each client to help their brand reach its
full potential for customer loyalty and sales turnover.
My role was as graphic designer working with the design team and also
independently on numerous projects. Work range could span from designing a
single leaflet to re-branding an entire business. Work was done across screen
and print format. There was a lot of client contact both in person and over the
phone and email. Due to the nature of the business some projects would span
weeks while some are on going due to the repeat business from companies. As
such a relationship needed to be established between you and the client. Also
there was large amount of contact with printers and suppliers as we out sourced
a lot of business. Multiple concurrent projects had to be worked on and
completed within tight time frame. While working on these projects I also
attended to incoming calls.
2009 July - October 2010
Amcor Flexiblies Dublin
In-house graphic designer/admin Duties & responsibilities
Initially I was hired to assist the newly formed waste committee.
I was to help them communicate to all employees the importance of waste awareness
through presentations, posters etc… The majority of the presentations were shown on a
large screen in the staff canteen and the posters were put up on the notice boards. The
head of the waste committee was keen to create a character (or characters) to aid in the
“war on waste”.
As time went on I worked with almost every department on site from HR to the quality.
I developed their intranet site, published the news letter each month, designed new on
site signage, and published a logistics handbook, to name but a few jobs.
During my second six month contract I was to maintain my duties as in-house designer
but also cover maturity leave in the purchasing department.
My job there included booking in shipment orders over the phone and by email, stock
adjustments, communicating with the factory workers to ensure deliveries arrived
according to plan, and other general filing and administrative work. I was trained to use
admin programs such as ATMS and SAP.
In my last three months I learned a lot about the inner workings of the printing process
by organising print colour standards and other important information for the printers to
run various jobs.
