Vital Findings is an innovative consumer research firm dedicated to making research as creative as it is analytical.  We are a team of creative, entrepreneurial researchers focused on bringing the tools of information design, management consulting, and innovation consulting to our research.  Our mission is to unleash the power of consumer research through world-class analysis and compelling design, and our Visual Design Team is a key pillar of this mission.  Some of our most recent work can be found here:

Vital Findings is a pioneer in bringing cutting edge data and information design to the market research industry.  Our clients ? companies such as Warner Bros., Uber, T-Mobile, HBO, Starbucks, and NBC Universal -- regularly comment that our reports and presentation are the best they've ever seen.  Our researchers are trained in how to visualize data, and our Visual Design Team is continuously developing new ways to communicate our research, including infographics, visual frameworks, process maps, personas, visual models, motion graphics, and video presentations.  The Visual Design Team is also responsible for developing creative for Vital Findings' internal marketing department, including visual identity, branding collateral, conference presentations, and digital brochures.

Vital Findings seeks a recent design school graduate with a multi-disciplinary background to join our Visual Design Team as a Visual Designer.  The ideal candidate will demonstrate their talent in designing complex information graphics as well as a passion for creatively displaying data visually.  Creativity and ambition are a must ? the research designer will constantly be asking: 1) how can our research results and insights be illustrated in the most meaningful and compelling way, and 2) how can we incorporate new information design techniques earlier in the analysis phase of projects.  As with all Vital Findings projects, our work is intensely collaborative and the designer will be an integral part of our research and design teams, contributing to brainstorm sessions on our research projects, helping to organize training and staff development, and helping to pioneer new ways of communicating complex information.  For more about life at Vital Findings, visit:
