Senior Designer

You’re a fiend for all things visual identity and brand strategy and understand what it takes to create beautiful and usable digital experiences. You can lead and execute work independently but know how to direct, inspire and collaborate with others. You’re excited for a challenge, working across numerous verticals for both enterprise clients and early-stage startups. This means you can easily oscillate between ‘minimum viable brands’ to deeper brand strategy. You know the difference between good and great work, and can articulate your vision in persuasive ways.


YOUR MISSION IS:

  • to deliver and lead boundary-pushing work that inspires others, internal and external to JM
  • to do it with ease, speed and deliver on time, within budget and to a high-standard, no matter the project

YOU ARE:

  • experienced (4+ years)
  • an expert in branding, visual design and brand strategy
  • well versed in UI and digital design
  • meticulous in your execution
  • no stranger to iteration and testing
  • a killer communicator, in every respect
  • curious and perceptive
  • flexible and patient
  • organised and resourceful
  • able to take direction, and take the lead

YOU CAN:

  • make decisions at the intersection of brand and business
  • mentor generously
  • persuade and rationalise like nobody’s business
  • stay connected and in sync while working remotely

YOU HAVE:

  • a thirst for good work
  • a growth mindset, to say the least
  • a deep, nuanced understanding of (read: love affair with) design process
  • a strong ability to strategise and frame problems
  • willingness to take, calculate, and rationalise risks

YOU HAVE SKILLS IN:

  • Figma
  • Notion
  • Creative Suite
  • Google Workspace
  • meeting / workshop facilitation

YOU’RE PARTIAL TO:

  • flexible work hours
  • work BFFs (specifically with these people)
  • snacks
  • mentoring
  • sick beats
  • competitive frisbee

Applying to work in a Josephmark venture

About diversity: JM knows better products begin with diverse teams. That’s why we strongly (see bold and underline usage) encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.

About qualifying: If you’re reading this and thinking, “oh no, I only tick a few of those boxes so I’m not going to apply.” Don’t be silly. If you’re a standout human, we won’t care that you play squash like a newborn giraffe. Ya feel?

About remote work: While we prefer a Brisbane-based designer for this specific role, if you’re a shoo-in poised to bring the noise, we could find a way to make it work. Don’t let location stop you from applying if you’ve got your heart set on it!


Want to know what it's like to be on the Product team at JM? Meet one of our Product Designers, Scott.

What’s the most interesting thing you’ve worked on at JM? I’ve learned so much from dipping my toes in a variety of industries that I have no prior exposure in. One day, I’ll be designing for a fitness product. The next, I’ll be creating a website to help traditional owners of land in Australia claim their stake the tourism industry through cultural education. I really enjoy the diversity of projects we work on at Josephmark, and could never pick just one.

How long have you been in the industry for? I graduated in 2013 in Wales, and have been working in the design industry for the past 7 years – though I did move from print into product.

What’s the best thing about working at JM? The people. People play a huge part in forming your impression of a company. For me, I value the everyday chats and hangouts, online and offline.

What’s the worst thing about working at JM? Right now? Not being able to see everyone in person every day due to the global pandemic.

What’s something people might not know about being a designer at JM? If you’re designing at JM, you are never just responsible for how things look – it’s so much more holistic. You’re informing business decisions, developing product strategies, guiding content, and thinking about how the world views and interacts with a product.

What advice do you have for anyone looking to get into what you do? You’ve always got to stay curious. Aesthetic literacy can make a good designer, but it’s also about having empathy and being able to solve problems faced by users in a way that’s considered. Design can be beautiful because of how it looks – but it can also be beautiful because of how it works.
