Job Description

CTI Living - Junior Artistic Designer - Please apply directly at

This is a creative role where you can design colourful and textured plant containers; presentations; and marketing materials. This is a traditional "artistic" opportunity with a strong digital component. Apply your creative skills in a company that sells millions of potted plant containers to North Americas largest retailers each year. Your focus will be on designing, drafting, creating and refining new designs, colour schemes, textures, sizes and shapes of flower and plant containers. You will have a lot of creative autonomy with this dynamic, fast-paced, entrepreneurial company. Many of your best designs will end up on store shelves and in homes. This is the type of company where you will gain more hands on experience in one year than five years at an agency. The office is fun and the atmosphere is friendly. Having grown by 500% over a 10 year period the work environment is exciting, the atmosphere is friendly, and the workspace is newly renovated and lovely to work in.
