Lead Designer for Manyone
To help Manyone grow, we are looking for a Lead Designer, who will always be curious to apply design thinking to businesses, products and services whilst playing an essential part in ensuring quality, creativity and delivery of global projects to help drive excellence and deliver innovative and strategic solutions with high impact.
Manyone is the world’s first independent hybrid strategic design consultancy combining the best in strategy, creative thinking, and technology to shape everything that’s next. By focusing on consistently learning and validating design decisions together with internal and external stakeholders and by understanding the constantly evolving world, they help organizations envision, design, structure, and execute strategy in both the mid- and long term, allowing strategic change at speed. In the past few years, their team of teams have made transformational work for clients such as Lloyds Bank, IKEA, Audi, Brussels Airlines, Telenor, Vestas, LEGO, TV 2, Telefónica, Panasonic, Nordea, Novo Nordisk, Samsung, BroBizz, and Jabra.
Since Manyone’s launch in September 2019, they have experienced vast growth and is today an international group of teams and experienced strategy and design executives who merge a global mindset with Nordic design roots. From their 8 offices in 7 countries, they help businesses develop sustainable value into tomorrow and beyond and they aim at working with big challenges to make great impact.
Working with some of the best people in the business and with a solid back-up from all of the other Manyones, you will develop strategic design projects in close collaboration with a strong team of design thinkers and do’ers across offices and countries. You will set the design vision and direction for various projects, providing creative flair as well as oversight of client deliverables – both on a national and international level. It is therefore essential that you come with an entrepreneurial and visionary mindset along with a great drive to work independently – but find yourself in the right place when you get the chance to collaborate across teams, platforms, nationalities, and design processes.
Besides contributing to high-quality creative work from conception to execution that demonstrates an innovative, market-leading approach to design, you will work with local and global clients to interpret their marketing briefs and become familiar with their products and services, target audience and competitors' activities. This to devise and develop original and engaging ideas, address the client's business issues and help oversee the design and development of a wide variety of project types such as presentations, workshops, logo and brand identity, website design, product experience, and print collateral. You will analyse market trends, formulate consumer reaching strategies and combine marketing and graphic design to create visual initiatives as well as to drive the development and execution of brand design initiatives for various clients. The position is thus a great opportunity to show your design craftmanship and flair for identifying and creating the underlying logic, reasoning and design thinking behind brand concepts.
As Lead Designer, you will join Manyone at their Copenhagen office but be part of an ambitious global design consultancy, hence get the opportunity to create design projects with a global perspective.
The ideal candidate can help Manyone shape everything that’s next based on experience in leading, defining and implementing innovative and strategic design strategies and a fine understanding of conceptual branding and design thinking. You are a designer at heart and have at least 4 years of experience from a similar position. Moreover, you are able to use design research, market research, and business analytics, and are a pure genius at identifying markets, insights, problems, consumer needs, trends, connections, partnerships, and technologies that can be tapped and turned into innovative new products, brands and services. Previously, you have set your mark in an agency where you have worked with project design deliverables and quality control for diverse clients and design projects, and you are thereby comfortable in handling clients, presenting and communicating your ideas and in driving workshops for a broad audience with different backgrounds and nationalities.
Manyone’s organisational model emphasises adaptiveness to set the right team for a project. Therefore, we are looking for a person who easily adapts to working with the different teams on a project to project basis, and a person with the right creative and strategic mindset to truly become a Manyone. Being a Manyone means that you are proactive, openminded and empathic, share your thoughts with clients and especially with your great colleagues, and would love to be part of an exciting journey in building a global hybrid strategic design company.
