Principal Visual Designer


For our office in Rotterdam / Amsterdam (both possible) we are looking for an ambitious Principal Visual Designer who effortlessly translates abstract words and concepts into amazing visual designs and digital products.

As a Principal Visual Designer at Dept you take the digital channels of our clients to a higher level. You inspire clients and colleagues with your sense of style and vision on digital brands. You understand how fantastic digital design fits within the commercial framework of brands and helps to push their boundaries. Your qualities add value in a wide range of client questions, from app to shop and from museum to commodity. And your vision on design inspires the team and determines our course.

Your passion for the profession is evident from your rich and diverse portfolio. With this work – and your personality – you know how to inspire less experienced team members! You can convey your passion for the profession well because you are both verbally and visually well versed. Because you have recently worked on award-winning projects, you know what it takes to work at that level, exactly what we do at Dept! You are also able to tell us new things about typography, layouts and motion.

In this role you are responsible for executing design research and design strategy for our top clients. You coordinate the projects you work on in terms of visual design and content creation. With your extensive experience you can easily collaborate with UX Designers and Strategists in all phases of the project. And you are pre-eminently responsible for the quality of the delivery and implementation of these projects. You will also work with the design leadership to ensure our competitive position in the market.

You will work in a vibrant environment with clever minds that work for a variety of large global clients like the Van Gogh Museum, Bugaboo, NS en B&B Italia. Yes, we are eager to hire the most talented experts in the game but we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn, inspires, strives towards a better world, takes the stage, a futurist at heart, and someone who will toast to a successful week with us.
