Visual Communication Designer – IDEO

Visual Communication Designer – IDEO
TOKYO, JAPAN

Job description
We are seeking a Visual Communications Designer to join our Tokyo studio. We are looking for an individual with strong skills and passion for visual design across different media: our communications designers routinely work on projects that spread across print, packaging and brand identity to projects for screens, devices and spaces.

IDEO Tokyo’s mission is to help Japan renew and reframe its creative and economic leadership position in the world by being a catalyst for change. As part of a small studio that is still starting-up and growing, this person must demonstrate a collaborative working style, great communication skills, and the ability to thrive in a non-rules based environment of innovation.

We are looking for folks with both breadth and key areas of focused expertise: if you’re a creative thinker with a strong visual portfolio and a passion for designing beautiful, unique and thoughtful work, we should talk. Strong Japanese and English verbal and written skills are required.

We’re looking for a person with:
Strong portfolio and elevated sense of design, color and typography: you know the difference between “good” and “great” and are able to work through team dynamics, clients and timelines to deliver excellent design
User centered perspective: You understand and can articulate a human-centered approach to design and be comfortable going out into the world for inspiration.
Team skills: You work best in a participatory, team-based environment. You support and inspire teams through collaboration as well as direction, vision, and planning of all aspects of visual deliverables.
Communication skills: You have strong verbal and visual presentation skills. You demonstrate a clear “point‐of‐view” relating to their design. You understand the value of design and brand within a business context.
Prototyping skills: You are ready to learn from failure, embrace an iterative process and you understand that success come sooner with trial and error. You have experience in creating both low and high fidelity design deliverables for print and screen.
Consulting chops: You should feel comfortable throughout all phases of a project, from translating verbal ideas into visual concepts, through design development and refinement, to creating production-ready artwork.
Openness: Designers need to be flexible and open-minded, especially working in a start-up office. Successful candidates are optimistic, generative, and open the new ideas and ways of working.

ABOUT IDEO:
IDEO* has roots dating back to 1978. Today, IDEO is an award-winning global design and innovation consultancy. We create positive impact through design by taking a human-centered approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate, grow, and bring to market new ideas.
