Visual Designer for frog, Gothenburg

We are looking for a Visual Designer with UX experience, great visual eye and a passion for thinking with your hands to join frog in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Why join frog?

Joining frog means you’ll be joining the “pond,” a global network of studios, each with a thriving in-person and vibrant virtual culture. frogs are curious, collaborative, and courageous, united by our passion for improving the human experience through design, while each bringing our unique and diverse skills and experiences to the table. We draw on our global reach and local knowledge to solve complex problems and design innovative, sustainable solutions that touch hearts and move markets. frogs prize humour, positivity, and community just as highly as performance and outcomes. Our culture is open, flexible, inclusive, and engaging. Working at frog means being empowered to Make Your Mark on every project, in your studio, your community—and the world at large.

What you will be doing?

You will be responsible for the design and orchestration of visual elements in a systemic composition, and you combine design for interaction (UI/UX, design systems and digital products) and design for communication (brand, print, and visual storytelling). As a visual designer you can balance spirit and rationality; brand and product; functional clarity and emotional impact.

You will be working as a part of diverse teams, but you will also need to take responsibilities independently. Learning, delivering what you promise and exceeding expectations matter a lot to you. You know that supporting each other and respecting our wellbeing is an essential part of this.

On a typical project you will:

• Create expressions for mood, tone, look/feel to help clients position their product, brand, or service
• Design the interaction models, wireframes, and visuals for different platforms
• Harmonise 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.
• Collaborate 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 a given field/industry
• Work in accordance with a Design System; typography, iconography, colour, grid, and design components
• Support the team with guidance for visual expression
• Craft user interfaces for digital consumer and enterprise products
• Create multi-media artefacts which tell the story of the work in an impactful way

We want you to have:

• At least 2+ years of professional visual design experience (although you might have had a different job title, like “UX/UI designer”, “art director” or “product designer”
• Experience designing creative mobile and web applications
• Strong understanding of user-centred design practices
• Collaborative and client service mindset
• Affinity with frog’s values, and a passion for creating products that meet people's functional and emotional needs
• Fluent in Swedish & English
• And finally, passion for learning, adapting and growing professionally
• Valid working permit for Sweden/EU
It would be a bonus if you had:
• A university degree in Interaction Design, Visual Design or relevant design discipline.
• Experience working in a variety of organisations (start-up, corporate, agency/consultancy)
• Academic, professional, or life experience from outside the design field that enriches your perspective as a designer

We offer a collaborative and inclusive environment that pushes you to learn and grow. frogs are open, flexible and prize positivity as highly as performance and outcomes. You’ll be working as a part of a multidisciplinary team with diverse clients, who range from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.

Interested?

• 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.

We are looking forward to your application, no later than August 8.
