What you’ll do as a Brand Design Lead at Emakina

As a central creative figure in our branding and design team, you are a creative visionary who can turn a dry brief into a unique, amazing design with a strong idea behind it. Your designs tell a story and we want you to be the one to present it to our clients. We are producing work on a global scale and of the highest standard, so we want someone to push creative boundaries through insightful brand design.
You own branding projects from concept to realization and beyond, creating beautiful designs for global brands as well as local heroes from multiple countries across various categories and touchpoints.

This role supports the Head of Design and will be fully immersed in the project teams from strategic inception to artwork oversight, and from activation to guidelines. This requires clear and open communication internally as well as externally, collaboration and strong organization.
We believe in the power of ideas to create positive, meaningful change. So we want someone to channel that aspiration and dare to think big. We’d rather you ask for forgiveness, than permission.

More reasons to choose a job at Emakina

We offer a friendly, informal workplace to work with some of the biggest brands and digital retailers in Europe, a competitive salary and 25 vacation days a year (if you promise to come back). But equally important: we have great teams, focused on more than just their day-to-day job. For example our dedicated Commits team organises days to donate time to great causes (such as Staatsbosbeheer!). Our HR team organises many training sessions to help us develop a growth mindset and learn how to give constructive feedback, because people at Emakina truly care about each other. We also like to have fun and spend time together, whether it’s on our ski trip, company boat and parties, or by organising nerd-summits to share knowledge. And very important: we serve the best coffee!
