Draw is a digital agency within Oliver Wyman that believes in making things better. The team is based in London, New York, and Boston with 50 professionals. We help fans around the world explore their love of music. We help lawyers in beat news outlets to the punch. We help consultants find the next generation of game changers. We help charities better communicate how they’re saving children from disease. Everything we do - from building websites to enhancing customer relationships - is driven by a rigorous strategic approach based on our client’s core business goals. We focus on outcomes, not outputs.
Draw has begun its operations in the USA and has started to grow teams in both New York and Boston. You will be joining a small team in Boston, working alongside a UX designer to deliver rapid, digital solutions to business challenges. A lot of this work is UX and UI design work. We already have a UX designer in both New York and Boston - therefore we need UI designers with strong portfolios that demonstrate either their previous experience or potential to grow quickly into the kind of designer that thrives at draw.
We need a first-rate Graphic / UI designer who is comfortable working in a team of smart minds alongside driven and ambitious clients. We are less impressed by long CVs - more impressed by a hunger to design and a portfolio that demonstrates a real talent and eye for layout. You will be working on creating beautiful digital products and services and campaigns.
There are no limits on the size of operation Draw has in the US, so long as growth is sustainable and profitable, your career can grow alongside this venture.
Ability and Willingness to travel:
While your day-to-day office will be in New York a lot of our clients are based all over the US. Therefore, there will be times when you will be required to travel to client meetings and also times when you will be required to work on client sites for extended periods of time.
Below we set out the key requirements for the role, together with examples of skills and experience we think will be useful to deliver them.
First and Foremost - fantastic design skills!
You will be the agency design representative to think through complex client challenges and create well thought through solutions based on any technical limitations of the project.
You will be working alongside experts from the various agency disciplines on the solution to develop the UI approach to whatever project you are working on.
Clients can sometimes be their own worst enemy, so it’s up to you to help keep the momentum up and be a strong and an enabling force when there are obstacles on the track. We’re not expecting miracles here - we know that there are things out of our control - but we’re looking for someone who’s not going to give up at the first hurdle.
Quickly understand the project you are working on:
You don’t have to be an expert in banking, re-insurance, law firms or supermarkets to build a product - but, to make a difference, you do need to be able to quickly pick up the fundamentals and the nuance of a business and its challenges.
We want people who are curious about how and why things work (or don’t) - no matter what the sector - so that they can apply their learning wherever it’s valuable.
If you are interested please reply to let me know - also if you have a PDF of your work or a link to your most recent work please feel free to send it in advance. We will start arranging interviews on a first come first served basis - so if you are keen, please let us know sooner rather than later. Once we find the right person they can start almost immediately.
