Nice to have around, a natural leader that inspires their team

Your superpower:

Hands on approach, with the knowledge, ability and desire to influence high level design

We are currently seeking a Brand Experience/ Environment Design Director to join our growing Experience team. Central to the role of Experience Design Director at Ochre is the ability to be able to fully comprehend a brand, its values, positioning and place in the world and set that knowledge against the task at hand. Not only by creating strong strategies and ‘central ideas’ to underpin our concepts but to actually transform those strategies into outstanding design. The subsequent ‘outcome’ of which may be a more profitable retail banking experience that’s rooted in a brand’s new positioning whilst simultaneously providing greater return on investment to the board, or reimagining the role of telco retail in the age of commoditised, data. Below are some key roles and responsibilities expected of the role:

Above all an Experience DD should have the ability to interpret and translate a brand from the page/ screen to an environment in a way that remains true and relevant to the spirit of the brand yet does not simply recreate 2D guidelines within a 3-dimensional space whilst clearly building a justification to do so.

Obtain the ability to interpret, question and dissect a brief and propose a relevant strategy towards tackling it by way of generating strong ‘central ideas’ even if this means challenging the brief itself.

Conduct research, assemble the necessary team, generate sketches, create mood boards, visuals and other means in order to communicate an idea and subsequently obtain sufficient buy-in from internal and external stakeholders to justify and proceed with a proposed strategy and concept.

Ideally have strong working technical knowledge of software such as SketchUp and preferably 3Ds Max and Vray (though any 3D software would be relevant) to produce either finished visuals or to take them to a stage whereby a another team member can pick up the design and finalise. *We believe that those who do not keep pace with the unstoppable march of technology will be made redundant by it.

Create well considered presentations that simply, beautifully and succinctly build the case for a well considered proposal demonstrated through the research and strategies undertaken that lead to and justify the eventual design.

Have a good understanding of materials and production processes.

Be able to liaise and lead both contractors and clients through the entire lifespan of a project.

The ability to read, annotate and correct design intent and shop CAD drawing packs.

Guide and tutor junior team members in both design and industry knowledge by staying abreast of trends, markets, behaviours, technologies, applications, materials and build techniques.

Every day you might be looking at trends, researching (or organising research groups), finding experts and helping input into processes to discover what will bring the best outcome for your client. You are happy to run a workshop (with a little help or not) and you just want to see great design happen that makes sense and delights.

This is no place for egos or prima donnas. The work is what matters.

• A thoroughly nice person to have around with a decent sense of humour

• Interested in improving ways of working and in studio cultures
