What you can expect:
At designaffairs the “We-feeling” is very important. We experience this every day when we cook together in our open kitchen area, barbecue on our rooftop terrace or when we chill-out at the campus’ pool.
designaffairs counts to the most award-winning design agencies worldwide. Our success is based upon a concept of combining creativity with scientific methods. Together with our designers, ergonomists, engineers and strategists, you will create innovative and ambitious designs for both our national and international clients coming from various industries, such as transportation, medical technology, consumer electronics, building technology, household appliances and software.
Diverse projects are awaiting you: from complex software products over hardware to innovative operation concepts via multi touch and gesture. The required technologies for this are available for you in our interface lab and serve you and your colleagues as a creative playground.
We look forward to meeting you! You will get to know our agency and your future colleagues better in a personal interview. Also, we would gladly discuss your professional development potentialities at designaffairs.
Your portfolio will:
› Showcase your passion for user interfaces and digital design.
› Display experience with diverse content and media.
› Show an ability to translate ideas and concepts into high-quality, beautiful yet functional, user-centered design.
› Demonstrate stylistic depth and attention to detail.
› Be primarily digital product, service, or software focused: designaffairs is not an advertising or communications agency.
