Janitha Katugampola
Senior Graphic Designer

Studying and working as a Graphic Designer for the past 18 years has taught me that no matter what you work on, each project is different and unique. The clients, the audience and the design combine to create a relationship between the user and the brand. As a designer, I enjoy influencing that relationship with my strong design skills, aesthetic clarity and understanding of marketing principles.

(2019-Current) I currently hold the position of Senior Graphic Designer at GMT Lighting, a well-known distributer and wholesaler of replacement lamps, located in Hawthorn. I initially joined the company as the head of Graphic Design, although I was shortly offered an opportunity to expand my role to Showroom Manager.

My role as head of Graphic Design at GMT Lighting involves producing advertising, promotional flyers, web site maintenance, web banners, and catalogues. Other roles with website maintenance is regular Online Blog Posts and daily EDM’s to send to customers. As Showroom Manager within the company, my role entails overlooking and managing all day to day Point of Sales jobs. Ensuring all clients are looked after and all staff assisting fulfil their roles in assisting customers.

My role as a Graphic Designer within the company working full time for the last 5 years was to create/design Promotional material from Adverts, Catalogues, Specials, Indents, Web Banners, Website Maintenance. Other roles within the company include Internal Sales (Invoicing, Purchase Ordering, Filing, Liaising with clients & International suppliers), Cricket Sponsorship (liaising with young and upcoming talent from around Australia).

(2010-2012) Designing for QinetiQ, one of Australia’s leading providers of technology-based services and solutions to the Defense, Aerospace, Security and Resources markets helped me see the impact good design has across the government and industry. From laminating and creating Calibrated Graphs, editing and creating books and presentations to editing photos, videos and creating 3D models for video simulations QinetiQ entrusted me with its many projects for DSTO clients.
