As a global design firm, Designit never stops its ambitious growth journey to craft sustainable futures, improving quality of life, while enabling new business growth. Thus, their studio in Stockholm is now looking for an empathic Lead Digital Designer with a kick-ass attitude who can bridge culture, business and people centricity with a true re-imagine and re-think mindset, to help them accomplish their bold ambitions.
As the new Lead Digital Designer, you will provide the creative force in projects and inspire clients and colleagues with a strategic approach and exceptional craftsmanship. You will work across the entire digital landscape — native apps, web apps, websites and digital UI/UX for IoT products and transform business needs, market research, brand strategy and user insights into innovative concepts. You will proactively identify and help the development of business opportunities for Designit.
Moreover, the role requires a hands-on approach and you will get the overall responsibility for the production of wireframes, storyboards, user workflows and processes to improve the end-to-end experience of an interesting prospect. Thus, you will work with all disciplines within UX and UI – both on a conceptual level and hands-on. Moreover, you are a native in digital front-end concept work and experiences with digital product development.
Your responsibilities will include:
- Successfully lead your team by combining a well thought strategic direction with a healthy work environment in which people inspires, motivates and helps one another
- Spark the quality of the team efforts and deliverables through thought leadership, experienced craftsmanship and a hands-on approach
- Contribute to the professional development of Designit by pushing and exploring methods, procedures and industry trends to develop your specialty/discipline
- Take part in scoping projects and be client-facing in which you support and help drive new and re-biz projects
- Align and collaborate with other Lead Designers locally and regionally
Through your past professional experience, you have gained solid knowledge about digital user experience, but you have also realized that the professional solution cannot solely be based on the premises of the customers, but must be found in the intersection between customers’ needs and the business objectives.
You will report to the Head of Studio, Stockholm.
As the ideal candidate, we expect you to have approximately 7 years of experience from a similar role with responsibility for UX/UI within a complex digital ecosystem. You are a designer with significant experience in the industry within the disciplines of graphic design, digital product design, UX/UI, visual identity, and digital design. Moreover, you have experience with creating innovative concepts and you have a good technical understanding ideally with hands-on experience within front-end development and/or digital design. You are geeky about typography, branding, user experience and interested in front-end development and technology. You are a strategic problem solver with a challenging mindset and the drive to bring your ideas to life with passion and precision. Moreover, you are fully aware of the design possibilities within web technologies, mobile platforms and excited about new possibilities in emerging technologies. It is required that you are fluent in both written and oral English and preferably one of the Scandinavian languages.
You are embedded in the local design scene and have a solid reputation with clients. You are an experienced leader that knows how to guide the team in the right direction and inspire the team to move forward. It is expected that you come with advanced knowledge of UX methodologies, and that you have confidence in providing strategic directions within UX/UI. If you additionally have a great understanding of service design methodologies, it is a huge plus – though, this is not a requirement.
As a person, you have an eagerness to work collaborative, and you possess an inclusive mindset towards colleagues in a loosely structured environment. Moreover, you are enthusiastic and have a huge amount of drive-by which you easily find innovative ways of setting direction and creating new and original digital products and solutions. You are someone with a ‘here to help’ attitude, who absolutely and fundamentally believes that you are better together as a team. Lastly, and most importantly, you are eager to make your imprint in one of Scandinavia’s leading design agencies and be a part of their exciting journey.
