Lead Visual Designer [m/f/x]


We’re looking for a lead visual designer / user interface designer for our offices in Munich and Detroit.

About the role

Visual designers at icon incar have a knack for high quality interface design and, at lead level, are able to create a brand’s design language from scratch. But having a keen sense of design doesn’t keep them from thinking holistically. Since visual designers regularly collaborate with information architects and prototypers in an interdisciplinary team, they must feel confident in other disciplines as well.

As lead designer, you work independently on projects, are convincing when dealing with clients and guide other designers and teams. Coordinating multiple projects in parallel is a welcome challenge in your book and you enjoy interacting with a wide range of co-workers and clients. You help define internal standards and verify overall design quality. Your mindset is strategic and you have the big picture in mind. You report directly to the art director or creative director.

Your abilities

  • Have a comprehensive understanding of projects beyond the scope of visual design
  • Lead and mentor other designers (up to senior level)
  • Create high-quality user experience designs for various platforms
  • Collaborate with information architects on overarching UX concepts
  • Apply your design expertise to help develop prototypes
  • Create and design presentations that are future-oriented
  • Convince in client presentations and discussions
  • Support and improve internal processes, methods and workflows
  • Exemplify exceptionally high quality standards
  • Enjoy national and international travel
  • Actively contribute to our company culture, mutual exchanges and inspiration

Our requirements

  • Degree in design or comparable vocational training
  • Extensive experience designing for various platforms
  • Digital native who’s familiar with and helps drive the latest design trends
  • Someone who’s a doer
  • Analytical and strategic mindset
  • Structured and tactical way of working on multiple projects in parallel
  • Good knowledge of current design advances and standards
  • Experience with the latest tools and methodologies
  • Familiarity with prototyping tools, usability testing or user research is a big plus
  • Comfortable dealing with clients
  • Business level English

This is our wish list, but what counts most is that you enjoy working in a team on exciting projects related to automotive and user experience. The exact level you start at and the focal point of your daily work are aspects we can define together with you.
