Job Description

The Creative Services department at our Home Office in Toronto is currently recruiting for the position of a Production Designer, reporting to the Senior Designer. Please note: this is a 12-month contract opportunity. 

We all remember the moment we connected graphic design to a bigger purpose.  At a young age, things like movie title art, movie posters, the designs on the popcorn bag & cups were things that just existed magically.  But when you realized that it was a special craft to bring typography, images and layout together to create these pieces of art, you fell in love.  In our day-to-day work, we believe that Design is more than just pretty pictures and typefaces – it’s a way of driving our purpose to help Canadian’s be inspired to seek out pleasure at some of Canada’s premiere entertainment brands including Cineplex Cinemas, The Rec Room, Playdium and more.   As a Production Designer, you will be assisting the design team primarily in producing and rolling out art files after the creative direction and design has taken shape – in the form of print files, packaging mock-ups, advertising, point-of-purchase and digital graphics. You thrive on pre-flight formatting, collecting, processing, checking and uploading files to our partners and colleagues. Your work will help Cineplex stand out as a bold Canadian brand and seen as a design champion & innovator. Oh, and this gig comes with free movies!
