Tasks for an in-house Visual Designer/AD vary from short-term concept visualisation gigs to more long-term marketing projects within recruitment, employer branding and sales. You will also take part in our inhouse brand development together with our Creative Director Jyri. 

Your tasks depend on the project at hand, though it's fair to say that crafting the end result to be more understandable, usable and why not more attractive is your responsibility. We hope you can show us how to develop our communications with excellent visual design.

In addition to being a member of our centralised marketing team, as a visual designer you get to join our marvellous team of visual designers, a group of 11 at the moment. In their team meetings, our visual designers share their knowledge and awe at the wonderful arts & design experiments and projects of their fellow designers.
