Visual/UI Design Lead
Retail brand (Digital Hub)
- Contract type
- Start date
We are working with the central digital hub of a retail collective, who are taking several well-known UK and European retail businesses through an exciting period of digital innovation with the focus on bringing new digital products to market, both on-line and in physical retail environments.
Spearheaded by a Head of Digital, the company have built out teams specialising in the areas of Visual Design, Research, and Service Design. The retail businesses already have high-performing eCommerce websites, so the remit of these teams is to concept, present, and deliver new innovative digital products that will enhance their offering in both digital and physical environments. Essentially this is a new products and services team.
Several key hires have been made already, but now they're hiring for a Visual Design Lead to head up a team of visual designers, and to deliver strategy and visual design-direction for the new products/services that they are bringing to market. The team is relatively small (4) at the moment, but this will grow to between 6-8 over the next 12-months, so there's also an opportunity to grow out the team.
In terms of suitable profiles for the role, they are looking to bring someone on board who is currently operating at a 'Design Lead' level, either within an agency/consultancy who focus on large-scale digital experiences, or within a similar retail environment. Regardless of your current role, they are looking for someone who can translate smart and innovative product/service concepts into polished visual experiences that have a measurable impact on their customer’s experience.
