Key skills:

Excellent IT skills, especially with indesign and photo-editing software
Exceptional creativity and innovation
Excellent time management and organisational skills
Accuracy and attention to detail
An understanding of the latest trends
Professional approach to time, costs and deadlines

Experience with brand design would be an advantage but not essential.
