Penny Gambitsis Senior Talent Agent

Are you an award winning Brand, Craft and Packaging designer, proven in your career and looking for a new challenge in 2019?

The designer will be expected to own responsibility for job management, development and its creative outputs, devising concepts that exceed expectations and presenting to clients with confidence and flare.

This is the perfect role for a talented senior looking to step up or a passionate designer keen to excel in their craft and work across a range of top companies.
