Visual designer / Ilustrator

At Ink Strategy we're looking for a Designer that has passion for visualisation and drawing (medior)

About Ink Strategy

At Ink Strategy we help organisations achieve successful transformation. We use our unique DNA, combining design and change expertise, to create interventions that energise, inspire and empower people to pro-actively contribute towards a compelling vision - every day. Our strategic and behavioural interventions are supported by wow-factor visual communication tools. We are playful for a purpose. We create sustainable change by design.

About the job

Your goal is to turn strategy, change and transformation programs into playful and visual communication tools that hit the mark. You’ll be making visuals to communicate complex ideas and use visual thinking to facilitate group co-creation session. You will design, develop and deliver a wide range of creative communication tools ranging from sketches, visualisations, animations to interactive websites. Your creative work will empower our clients to create a compelling vision and activate their entire organisation.

What do you do on a daily basis?

You discuss client change challenges with your colleagues and come up with effective design solutions.

You collect and structure complex information from clients - from interviews or during group sessions that you co-facilitate - and translate the information into a visual summary.

You develop sketches into high res, full color psd files with ready to use visualisations or animations. Most of your time will be dedicated on this activity.

You proactively bring in your own creative contribution to further develop Ink Strategy.

About you

  • You love to draw and are a true designer at heart. You love the idea of applying it to facilitate behavioural change.
  • Visual thinking: you are analytically strong: you can get to the essence of large amounts of data fast and easily translate information in compelling visualisations;
  • Visual production: (after a short on-boarding period) you can independently design and deliver well composed full colour visualisations (see example below) and (ideally) are able to handle multiple styles of animations.
  • Project management: you have experience managing projects and put that experience to work: you break down projects in clear tasks, manage your time, are able to keep clients aligned and deliver on time.
  • Facilitation: you’re familiar with the design thinking toolbox and feel comfortable running group sessions to gather and structure information needed to visualise an organisational vision, strategy and/or processes. You can think on your feet during sessions and can contribute to group dynamics. You know how to apply all design thinking models, when and why.
  • You are a team player and are driven to pro-actively grow Ink Strategy as an organisation in terms of people and in terms of the size and scope of assignments we take on;
  • You finished a university degree with good grades;
  • You have relevant work experience (3 years or more);
  • You are willing to work from our office at Spaces de Walvis in Amsterdam in addition to working from home or at the office of our clients;
  • You are English and proficient in Dutch (speaking and writing).

What you get from us?

We offer an amazing and beautiful office in one of the best neighbourhoods of Amsterdam. Visit us at Spaces de Walvis.

The team has diverse backgrounds and that makes it a super diverse place to work. I have a background in game design and I get pulled into the fun projects that apply gamification. I love coaching and learning from my design team.
