Polished Man Graphic Designer

The in-house Graphic Design role is a crucial part of  Polished Man’s work. You will be working alongside  a fast-paced team in an exciting and agile non profit, sometimes on regular deliverables such as  campaign reports, and sometimes on conceptualising  the look and feel of a new campaign. The position  requires someone with excellent design skills, deep  knowledge and experience across the Adobe suite,  an open and creative mind, and the ability to work in  a fast-paced environment with tight deadlines.  

Most of our team at ygap headquarters is located in  Melbourne, however, we are open to remote work for  the right candidate, with flexibility in work times.
