Job Description

We’re looking for conceptual thinkers with a strong graphic/typographic focus, who have the discipline and ambition to turn their concepts into refined design solutions as part of the information systems we deliver.

We expect designers to be highly motivated and passionate, with a keen graphic eye and ambition to deliver projects of the highest quality.

About the role

Prior wayfinding experience is not required for this role; we are looking for outstanding graphic designers who have an eagerness to apply their skills to wayfinding contexts in the built environment, print, and digital applications.

We are looking for a candidate with:

  • 1–2 years experience within the design industry, demonstrating a solid understanding of user-centered design principles, and an ability to ideate, visualise and iterate strong design concepts.
  • A portfolio that demonstrates graphic and typographic skills, and your dedication to the craft of your final designs. At Applied we like design thinkers who champion the meaningful as much as the beautiful.
  • The ability to talk and write articulately about your decision making and the developmental work behind your designs. As well as being highly collaborative, you will be proactive in approach, and efficient at working on your own initiative.
  • Proficiency in and be up-to-date with the latest software required for the role. The company predominantly uses Adobe Creative Suite, Google Workspace (Slides, Docs, Sheets) and Slack
  • Prior experience involving UX/UI design, branding, industrial/product design, exhibition design, editorial design or BIM, 3D modelling/rendering are highly appreciated
