At TUX, the Graphic artist artist is the last to add the finishing touches to work before going to print or market. Their technical skills and high standards are greatly valued by the team. They have the complete trust of everyone, and rightfully so, because they never miss a detail and every pixel in their files has been subject to their attentive eye. The Graphic artist delivers a quick turnaround during the correction phase and unfailingly maintains graphic rigour in all creative work, regardless of the medium or support. They are self-reliant and find solutions when faced with inevitable surprises or constraints. They contribute to expanding the TUX network through their solid relationships with local and international suppliers.

Their curiosity is a precious asset, which permits them to stay on top of the latest technologies and available applications – discoveries that they relay to the creative team.
