Graphic Designer

Key Responsibility

To support the creative needs of our marketing services across all mediums.

What the Role Involves

As a company we undertake site design and development work at wind farm sites. This includes analysing wind measurements, undertaking wind resource assessments and performing engineering design tasks such as constraint mapping, layout optimisation, energy yield assessments etc.

To help us communicate our work to a range of technical and non-technical audiences, the Graphic Designer would work up their magic to make it interesting and simple through visually beautiful designs, illustrations and concepts.

Initially, we would look to get a small piece of work done by a number of designers. We’ll use this to test which designer we think best matches our vision. If you impress with those, then we would have a package of work covering 10-15 pieces of design work coming your way from us!

In the long run we are looking to form a relationship with a graphic designer, and once we find someone will be happy to discuss a longer-term retainer for their services.

How we Operate
  • We will review your CV and portfolio
  • We will send a task for you which would require you to illustrate a problem statement or service graphically. Also supporting would be some mood boards which will help you understand the vibe we want.
  • Within stipulated timeframe you need to come back to us with your representation of the task. If we like your ideas, we will look to have a chat via a call or in person or both. 
  • The task gives you a flair of what kind of illustrations you would typically be working around with, the tone we want and also gives you a peek into the kind of company that we are and if you would be excited to work with us.
  • We will pay a nominal fee for the task, so you’re not working for us for free.  
Candidate qualities
  • A passion for graphic designs & an eye for illustrations
  • Highly organised
  • Detail orientated
  • Confident communicator
  • Able to build rapport with team 
  • Very professional approach
  • Takes great pride in quality of their work
