About the team 

As part of the global Fjord network, designers at The Dock are connected to an international system of design studios in 38 cities across 27 countries. We're in the business of uncovering real-world challenges and addressing them competitively through logical and emerging technological pathways.

About your role 

As a Fjord visual designer on the NPS team you will use visual communication to create engaging and impactful stories to help bring our products and services to life.

The projects we work on are complex and ambiguous and visual design can often work as a translator of these complex concepts. Visual designers closely work with the wider team to create project artefacts to help bring research insights and workshop materials to life that then support ideation and alignment of stakeholders. The role requires the ability to collaborate closely with software engineers, data scientists and subject matter expert to create digital products that utilise emerging technology in a responsible manner. 

  

Your everyday abilities 

  • Articulating the story and vision clearly – using the latest visual design tools to create products and artefacts that engage and excite people. 

  • Understanding brand guidelines and bringing them to life in innovative ways. 

  • Creating design systems that are efficient, practical and visually engaging.  

  • Collaborating with software and analytics teams to build proof of concept prototypes. 

  • Translating abstract ideas into tangible, engaging experiences that help internal teams and clients learn and understand 

  • Great communication - explaining and discussing your design decisions eloquently.  

  • Partnering with other design disciplines, technology, and project management to ensure your work meets creative, strategic, and program objectives. 

  • Sufficient with the latest in design tools (Adobe, Sketch, Figma, Invision) 

  • Ability to quickly sketch ideas and bring concepts to life
