As our new Print & Textile Designer, you are the first to handle all requests for offline, tangible elements of the LOAVIES brand.
You’ll be part of the Creative team at LOAVIES, collaborating closely with our Buying team to help execute upon their vision and requests for prints. You won't be a textile designer in the traditional sense, but rather helping our Buying team to conceptualize the best on-trend styles. Groovy '70s all-over print? Check! Graphic bikini? Yes, please! New hang tags for our jewelry range? Check! Out of our design team, you will be the first to take the lead here. The work environment at LOAVIES is fast-paced and energetic. With new drops each week, no day is ever the same.
In short, you'll be responsible for translating requests from across the business into stunning offline assets. You can also help propose, create, and follow-up on prints of the season and special projects in the direction set by our buyers in line with our seasonal inspiration. You report to our Head of Creative with strong guidance from our Head of Buying and Campaign Lead .
What's more in this role?
Create artwork, colorways, and illustrations for garments, or create print repeats for allovers;
Create illustrations for a variety of uses: campaigns, logo variations, brand personas, packaging, internal use, and more;
