Graphic and Digital Designer (2-year fixed term contract)

Are you a confident, articulate and intelligent designer? Do you have an eye for detail and creative flair? Typography skills? A track record in communicating successful cultural identities? Bang on trend? Then we need you to join the LSO Marketing Team!
