Visual Designer

The role

Do you live and breathe visual design? Do you bring experiences to life with your design skills? Do you want to work with a genuinely fun team to drive projects and clients towards solutions? If so, bring your expertise to a global team of strategists and designers and help grow the influence of experience thinking.

At FreeState, we’ve been carving our niche for the last 15 years internationally but it’s early days for our team in Australia. That makes this role critical to supporting our business as it grows – and is a significant opportunity to consolidate our offering.

As a FreeState Visual Designer based in Melbourne, you will bring experiences to life by crafting beautiful and clear design assets to communicate experience design concepts and principles, create visual design languages and materials, and generate concepts for innovative and unique experiences for our clients.

A key player in the development of innovative experiences, you will join a team of researchers, strategists and visual designers as well as a wider collective of cross-disciplinary design experts at HASSELL.

About us

FreeState is a global pioneer in experience design across the physical and digital environment. We’re experts in developing user-focused stories and immersive experiences that connect people with brands, each other and places. We work to a methodology developed over the last 15 years in partnership with leading multi-national clients.

About you
_You’re relentlessly curious – what you don’t know you’ll find out
_Your analytical mind means you think on your feet, an ability that’s been honed in a fast-paced agency-environment
_You care deeply about the purpose of your work, seeing projects through to completion and the broad positive impact experience design can create
_You’re flexible and autonomous, able to quickly contextualise a situation and move forward independently
_You’re a committed team player who wants to work as part of a team of high-performing strategic thinkers

Other important things we’re seeking:
_Significant knowledge and experience with the production of a range of visual design assets, from print to digital to presentations
_Proven experience visually communicating ideas with a high degree of complexity 
_Excellent oral and written communication skills with the ability to create and deliver clear and engaging artefacts and presentations
_Excellent stakeholder management, facilitation and interpersonal skills

This is a rare opportunity to get involved in a unique team that will contribute to shaping the expansion of our global practice as we build on our exciting start in Australia.
