For our Zurich-based studio, we are looking for a Design Lead (all genders).
If you have made it here, you should have answered the initial question with YES. Great. You love to create solutions that solve problems and spark joy. You have a passion for designing digital products that appeal and offer a great experience to their users. You are capable of conveying your ideas and visions verbally and visually.

In your leadership role, you may also be client-facing, holding presentations or running workshops, or you enable your peers to do so
