Environmental Graphic Designer
London, United Kingdom / WeWork
Posted: Oct 2, 2017
WeWork is looking for an Environmental Graphic Designer to help conceive, define and execute environmental graphics and art installations for our WeWork interior spaces in the EMEA region. As a member of the New York City-based Art & Graphics (@wearelunchmoney) and interior design teams, this teammate will work with the Art Director, Head of Art & Graphics, and interior design team to create unique installation work in our shared office spaces all over the region.Â He/she will be designing and producing everything from wayfinding graphics, to hand painted murals, to custom wallpaper patterns and neon signage. A significant part of the work will be installation-based. Strong hands-on art and design skills are required ? i.e. painting, drawing, or other means of creating design in physical spaces, as well as using tools, ladders, etc. He/she must have a strong background in traditional graphic design in order to take on occasional in-house initiatives.
The graphic designer will assist in managing relationships with vendors and manufacturers, ensuring the ordering and organization of materials and samples, and interfacing with freelancers and artists. Being able to quickly reference a vendor or manufacturer, find a sample of a material, or point to an installation process is just as important as the conceptual aspect of each design.
