Digital is the common denominator of our projects. Sometimes, it's branding, sometimes it's UI, and sometimes it's marketing; nonetheless, the work we do in the design team can be unfolded in 3 typologies: Concept, Delivery, and Maintenance. These phases define the maturity of any designer in our industry, and while many companies focus on only 1 or 2 of them, our network allows us to deliver under all of them.
In Concept projects, we wear our most creative hat, joining brainstorms, visual explorations, pitching ideas, and asking questions. Ultimately, being a driving force towards, whatever is the vision set for our client - which often involves pitching and presentations. When working with concepts, every idea counts. There is no hierarchy, and we believe designers get the opportunity to challenge themselves and what they know, no matter their level of expertise.
In Delivery projects, we collaborate closely with UX and development to hand over pixel-perfect designs and prototypes for implementation. This is where the love for our craft is at its purest. We work with the highest standards of UI and Interaction design, there is room for any product-minded geek.
In Maintenance projects, we nurture our ongoing clients. Together, we progress towards the project's final vision. We verify its status, we grow the brand and its design system. Designers often help scale features, but also overall continuously improve the product/experience by pitching new opportunities to the client.
You will be specifically involved in the visual/digital aspect of our projects, leading our clients. You are passionate, driven and possess a natural creative flair. You love to experiment and try out ideas and concepts. You are curious, always seeking that extra oomph that can ignite something greater, inspire your colleagues and elevates our clients.

Our wide range of projects, normally allows us to find the perfect fit for our people; furthermore we accompany that with a close personal development plan, to make sure you stay on target while having fun.
