CanPrev, Innovite, Orange Naturals, Cyto-Matrix – Scarborough, ON

GENERAL SUMMARY:
CanPrev grew out of a desire to make natural medicine safe, effective and accessible to everyone. And for over fifteen years, we have focused on making the best possible products that informed patients and natural practitioners can use.

We are looking to hire a talented illustrator to create high-quality artwork for our digital and print media publications. As an illustrator, you will work closely with a collaborative and fun team of marketers, writers, designers and creatives. This team is responsible for helping Canadians understand how their bodies work, and understand how natural remedies can help. You will be responsible for formulating concepts and rendering draft illustrations, sketched ideas.

As an Illustrator you will play an important part in shaping and expanding CanPrev’s four brands. You will work on projects of all sizes and across all channels while contributing to and maintaining CanPrev’s graphic standards and brand identity. You will create high-quality creative designs for print and web including packaging, labels, direct mail pieces, guidebooks, newsletters, brochures, advertisements & digital. You’ll work with design teams to bring your creations to fruition.

You’re keen. You love to take ownership of your projects and love to drive them to completion. You’re organized and your attention to detail never wavers; juggling several projects doesn’t faze you in the least. You thrive in challenging and dynamic environments. You’re dynamic too – with a hunger to learn new concepts and try new things. You’re eager to re-work concepts, exchange ideas, and problem solve.

Plus you think health and natural medicine is just plain cool.
