  • Able to work quickly and calmly to meet all deadlines, juggling multiple projects simultaneously

  • Have the instinct and ability to safeguard each brand’s visual identity (including the NAS brand) through the rigorous application of the approved BVI to designs – as well as proactively suggesting design developments
  • Extremely organised, with great attention to detail and an ability to maintain high standards during bursts of activity
  • A sideways-thinker; thinking outside the box to discover new ideas and designs
