IDEO.org is looking for a Visual Design Lead in our San Francisco studio with a depth of experience in digital design and storytelling. This role requires confidence in working across a variety of mediums. Today you might be creating compelling screen UI across mobile and web, tomorrow you could be shooting video that brings a new concept to life through creative use of animation. You have a passion for building brands, visual storytelling, and movement building, and love pushing your skills to new heights to tackle challenges in fresh and creative ways.
IDEO.org’s Visual Designers are a key part of multi-disciplinary design teams, blending business strategy and creativity— helping our partners around the world bring new offerings and ventures to market. With frequent trips that take you across the United States and around the world in countries such as Bangladesh, Kenya, Pakistan, and Colombia, you’ll be part researcher, part strategist, and part visual storyteller, working alongside other builders and thinkers from different backgrounds and disciplines.
You may have built your career as a graphic designer, working at an agency, or creating film and video stories, but now you’re fluent in the full design process—from research to strategy to implementation—and comfortable leading teams through it. Your passion lies in creating compelling experiences that shift hearts and minds. You stand up for beauty and are adept at telling stories that transcend language and culture through emotion and human connection.
A depth of skill in your core craft is a given. Leadership experience is a must. Passion for fighting global poverty and inequality is absolutely critical.
