About the Team

The Harry’s Design Team is responsible for elevating the physical expression of all Harry's packaging, retail displays and web presence, while continually improving our workflow. We maintain clean and polished work, to push our brand to stand out within the world of industrial design, consumer packaging and retail store design. We keep the customer at the core of all creative objectives, working hand-in-hand with Retail, Brand Marketing and DTC teams 

About the Role

We have a great opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic Photo Retouch Artist to join the Harry’s Design team.

  • Understand and adhere to current best practices in color management in order to maintain the highest standards of Harry’s Imagery across all platforms
  • Keep abreast of software upgrades and current trends in retouching and suggest ways to continually streamline and improve workflow
  • Work with inDesign and Illustrator files to modify type, line art and logos on existing product shots and create realistic mockups of products still in development.
  • Upload final images into our DAM system and tagging appropriate Metadata to make images available and easily searchable across the company

What you’ll need:

  • 3-5 years experience in retouching with emphasis on web imagery
