Digital Product Designer
!! Dutch required (working proficiency)!!Please note your application will not be considered if you do not comply.
You're a digital designer who loves to challenge new ideas. You like to work in a fast-paced environment within a growing team of young, ambitious and fun people. You will help visualise ideas at their early stages. You will be driving innovation in large corporates. You will be building visual prototypes used to test and challenge ideas generated in innovative workshops: from high-level sketches, to wireframes to product mock-ups. You like to work fast, to produce a quick result rather than a perfect representation: this is what we need to test and challenge assumptions.
You will be working on innovation projects and in multi-disciplinary teams for the most important companies in the Belgian market. You will contribute by turning great ideas into tangible prototypes such as mobile app mockup, iPad & sms-prototypes for client interviews, mini-landing pages, website mock-up, animated storyboard, UX/UI projects, etc.
You will participate in design sprints at your client and develop creative visualisations from your desk. You will need to be mobile to assist with projects in different Belgian cities. You will be based in Brussels.
Next to these innovation projects, we'd love to leverage your skills in other areas as well: help with marketing and promotion material ? from producing an e-paper, to working on visuals for our digital marketing, to improving the look and feel of our website.
