Keepthinking is looking for an experienced graphic/visual designer, to work in digital, with a passion for user-centred design and digital culture. The candidate will be expected to produce user experience design, visual concepts and visual interface design. While this role is primarily for a graphic designer, the ideal candidate will also have strong UX design skills.

We are looking for a person with strong typography and graphic design skill, with a background in traditional 'print' design and branding and a degree in graphic design from a major university. We prefer a formal graphic design education to a digital design one, as you will have learned principles of layout and structure - from there we can fill the gaps for what concerns digital skills.

Based in London, 10-strong Keepthinking works with museums, archives and cultural organisations worldwide, with a portfolio of award-winning digital products. You will join a team of passionate designers, developers and project managers to work in an international environment, alongside some of London’s most creative brains.
