Job summary

All-round Signs, a signmaker based in Fort William, Lochaber are recruiting for a recent graduate for a 12 month Graphic Design role.  The successful graduate will be responsible for developing an effective system for design proofing and approval, as well as the development of Eco (recycled fibres & polymers) signage system.

Job Description
