WHAT MAKES FLEXICON UNIQUE?
For more than 25 years, the Flexicon Group has been a highly appreciated prepress provider for the international and fast-moving consumer goods and packaging industry. Discover our Flexicon vision: Your Colours Worldwide.
Professions such as typesetter, photo-engraver or typescript editor have disappeared with the increasing digitalisation and were replaced by the modern, Media Designer.
Media designers work in various industries for print, audio and video media. Their task is to process raw data such as text, graphics, audio and video files via computer for publication. Media designers specialise in one of four disciplines: Media operator, media consultant, media designer and media technician. Within the four disciplines other specialisations are possible.
Media operators work in the core field of prepress: They are imaging specialists, bring together text and image data and produce artwork masters. If you like working with image processing applications and you are interested in digital media, you are in the right place.
Media consultants are familiar with image-related design as well as from the commercial and organisational aspects of a project. They typically work in customer service and advise on the different prepress solutions.
Graphic design is a field of study, media design is an apprenticeship that requires training. There are also differences in the factual orientation: Media designers develop complete design concepts and compile new motifs for various, mostly existing graphic elements. Their work is more technically oriented. In prepress for packaging printing, media designers are needed especially in the artwork. The job spectrum for graphic designers is similar to that of the media designer, but is geared more towards extensive and more creative solutions. Graphic designers design and develop different graphic elements themselves Graphic designers are used in prepress in various locations, for example, in the artwork and the artwork adaptation.
A media technician mainly deals with data streams. He processes data electronically, ensures smooth data conversion and output (analogue and digital), maintains databases and technical documentation.
For the quality of the packaging printing it plays a crucial role, but there is not (yet) an official job description for “Print Consultant”. “Print Consultant” at Flexicon is the name for the personal contact of a customer for all production-relevant questions from the artwork to the print approval. At Flexicon, media designers from different disciplines are prepared for the duties of a Print Consultant in a one year additional training.
