Senior Design Strategist
We're working with a brilliant design and innovation consultancy with a brilliant track record of delivering exciting products, solutions and innovative roadmaps for the future. They've got an approach grounded in the real world and the needs of an every changing consumer, with teams specialising in strategy, research, and design across product, digital experience, packaging and the world of transport. Around 65 people in total, they have a tight knit culture with plenty of people who have been with the business for 5+ years and low staff turnover.
The overarching ethos of the agency is that great design can make the world a better place - something they have been delivering against for 35 years.
They are currently doing 3 days in the office with the rest flexible, and their culture is one of delivering excellent work, giving people the challenge and support needed to grow, and of constant collaboration.
What You'll Be Doing
This isn't a traditional strategy role. While of course you will be working with your clients to understand and solve a range of problems this agency isn't just delivering branding. You'll be delivering research and insights projects, developing a range of innovation roadmaps, creating brand models and identifying gaps in the market for new products and services.
As part of that you'll also be responsible for:
- Working closely with your clients to identify their needs, and then developing a roadmap to meet those needs.
- Hands on delivery of research and insight projects.
- Developing succint and clear communications for the design team internally as well as your clients.
- Writing proposals for new products, services and innovation roadmaps up to ten years into the future.
Who We're Looking For
A background in design is a big plus for this one, though solid experience in innovation consultancy and brand strategy is the real must for this role. We're ideally looking for somebody with one foot in design, the other in the world of business, with proven experience and confidence with writing proposals, and working closely with clients and design teams. Of course, the ability to tell compelling stories in a succinct way and find the "aha" is key with this role.
The team at this agency pride themselves on a culture of continuous learning, so having an interest and curiosity about a large range of subjects is a huge plus for this role!
