Job Description

What will you be doing?

Visual Designers are responsible for the design and orchestration of visual elements in a systemic composition. The discipline combines design for interaction (UI/UX, design systems and digital products) and design for communication (brand, print, and visual storytelling). Visual designers balance spirit and rationality; brand and product; functional clarity and emotional impact.

As a Senior Visual Designer, you are expected to represent depth in the craft of visual design: as an individual contributor, as a mentor and guide for more junior colleagues, and as a contributor to the global community of practice. You will often be the backbone of your projects from beginning to end. You will plan, prioritize, and deliver visual design activities autonomously, in the context of interdisciplinary projects. You will lead client conversations within your domain, providing articulate recommendations and helping guide client choices. You will have opportunities to lead small teams on projects and contribute to business development through proposal-writing and pitches.

Your fellow frogs will rely on you to:

- Translate brand principles, themes, and moods into strategic frameworks for visual expressions

- Create scalable design language systems for typography, color, components, and layouts

- Craft user interfaces for digital consumer and enterprise products

- Design brand identities and brand collateral

- Build wayfinding and pictographical systems

- Create multi-media narratives that tell engaging stories of a team, project, or deliverable, with the audience and communication objective in mind

On a typical project you will:

- Evolve brand expression; by building on either existing direction, or creating one from scratch

- Create expressions for mood, tone, look/feel to help clients position their product, brand, or service

- Harmonize utilitarian needs of the user (accessibility, usability, navigation, key features) with more emotional values of design to create unique and distinguished brand equity for the client

- Drive collaboration with marketing, brand, strategy, and editorial teams to align from the design purpose to the execution roadmap

- Collaboratively create digital product concepts that push the bar for quality and excellence in each field/industry

- Craft a foundation for Design System, typography, iconography, color, grid, and design components

- Frame a vision for art direction, photography, and illustration to reinforce product/service vision

- Craft brand identities and brand collateral

- Support the team with guidance for visual expression

- Create multi-media artefacts which tell the story of the work in an impactful way

We want you to have:

- 5+?years of professional visual design experience (although you might have had a different job title, like “UI designer” or “art director”)

- Highly developed design skills, demonstrated in your portfolio of recent work

- Confident presentation and storytelling abilities

- Experience collaborating in multifunctional teams as the visual design lead

- Proficiency with contemporary design and prototyping tools and methods

- Affinity with frog’s values, and a passion for creating products that meet peoples functional and emotional needs

- Business level ability in English

It would be a bonus if you had:

- A university degree in Graphic Design, Visual Communications, or a related design or artistic discipline

- Experience working in a variety of organizations (start-up, corporate, agency/consultancy)

- Academic, professional, or life experience from outside the design field that enriches your perspective as a designer

Application Instructions

As part of your application, please include a link or PDF of your portfolio of recent work, highlighting your abilities and experience relevant to the role, with specific examples of how you work, think, collaborate, and contribute to great design outcomes. Please note that we are unable to accept any applications without a portfolio.
