A bit about us

We believe that creativity has the power to change the world and we demonstrate our passion at every point of the development process. Each member of our team—our designers, artists and producers—is valued for their strategic and creative input, making PSS a collaborative space where drive, ambition and passion are fostered.

We work across offices in Melbourne and Shanghai, and travel all over the world, to produce exciting and innovative work. We’re a small team with worldly scope and we love what we do—you just need to look at our work to know that.

Let’s talk day-to-day

Once you’re here, you’ll be given the opportunity to use your passion for graphic design. You’ll use your experience in concept ideation, brand design and digital strategy to share compelling and engaging project stories with clients, from initial client briefings through to development.

Your knowledge of local and international brands, talent and trends, as well as your understanding of channel-appropriate content, will help you to produce the best work imaginable.

You’ll have the chance utilise your excellent communication skills—verbal, written and visual presentation—to work on complex projects, and you’ll find use for your strategic insights and knowledge by providing innovative and original design solutions.

To keep up with your responsibilities, you’ll need to have:

·       5+ years graphic design experience in a studio environment
·       Bachelor’s degree in graphic design or relevant professional qualification
·       Experience in and understanding of the process of photoshoots
·       Extensive experience across print, motion and web, as well as fluency in Creative Suite packages
