A career within 'Artworking' can be based within an agency environment or in-house, working directly for a business. Are you wondering what an 'Artworker' actually does? Here a few pointers, what such role could look like.
No matter your level of seniority you’ll need an eye for detail as you’ll be one of the last people within the studio to work on a brief before it goes to print, or goes live. You’ll be making amends to design work that is passed over from elsewhere in the studio. In some studios the designer will artwork whereas others will bring on individuals as a Creative Artworker / CAW.
In some teams, you’ll act as a brand guardian, ensuring all work is on brief and within the existing brand guidelines. In print focused Artwork positions, it’ll be your responsibility to ensure files are ready to go out to print / press and you’ll need to typeset documents and files where necessary.
What exactly you will be doing is dependent on the specific client or business requirements, if you’re agency-side you can be sure that you’ll be working closely with the Client Services and Creative team to ensure work is on brief and to the client requirements. If you’re working in-house / clientside you’ll be with the Marketing or Creative team working on the business's creative requirements.
As an Artworker, you may be working on a broad range of platforms, including POS (point of sale), brochures, editorial, packaging, catalogues, print marketing collateral, digital assets, promotional merchandise and trade show or events collateral.
You may work on high volume projects which will mean you’ll need to work at pace without losing your detail orientated approach.
You’ll be well versed in the Adobe Creative Suite and a dab hand with all the usual suspects including Photoshop, Illustrator InDesign. It’ll be your responsibility to ensure the brands’ consistency, accuracy and legibility across all work that you produce.
