If so, we need you! We’ve decided to take over the greeting card world and need more creative hands on deck to help us!

Our design studio is expanding and we have two new openings for a Graphic Designer and a Graphic/Web Designer.

Paper is our passion here in Garlanna, and we are looking for candidates who are paper and card mad just like us. If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you.

Graphic Designer
The role of the Graphic Designer will involve a mix of creating greeting card designs from scratch – from concept through to production and also amending and updating existing designs.

We’re looking for someone who has their finger on the design pulse, and can spot emerging trends, popular palettes and create unique and innovative designs. A love of colour, pattern and typography is of huge importance. Excellent Mac skills and proficiency in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop are a must. The candidate we are looking for will also have strong writing skills and pay close attention to details both big and small! Practical knowledge of print production, paper and boards, finishing techniques and proofing are all required.

We are looking for a designer with 3 years + experience. Salary will depend on your experience. Applications via e-mail only, to laura@garlanna.com, with CV and a link to your portfolio or attach a PDF. This is a full time role in our head office in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow.

Swatches

Graphic/Web Designer.
We have a lovely website that we are very proud of and we would like to keep it in tip top shape – if you think you can help us out then please do get in touch!

This role will focus on our web presence and will involve maintaining our website, updating content, creating graphics for both the website and social media, uploading products, improving SEO and helping to increase our visibility online. The candidate will also maintain and update our trade website. Although this role focuses on web design, it involves working within our design team so knowledge and a love of design for print is a necessity.

Excellent Mac skills and proficiency in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop are required. Strong knowledge of WordPress and web development skills are a must for this role.

We are looking for a designer with 3 years + experience. Salary will depend on your experience. Applications via e-mail only, to laura@garlanna.com, with CV and a link to your portfolio or send sample links. This role is full time and based in our head office in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow.

Garlanna greeting cards

Wahoo, we’re famous! Did you see the article featuring Garlanna in the Sunday Independent this weekend?!

We had the pleasure of meeting Sean Gallagher recently when he paid us a visit to find out all about Garlanna. We gave him the grand tour of our head office, warehouse and our design studio. By the time his visit was ending, Sean was very well versed in the wonderful world of greeting cards.

If you missed the article, you can read all about Selling hugs in an envelope here. Enjoy!
