Are you someone who was drawn to architecture via a fascination How we inhabit + interact with spaces? Perhaps with some experience of exhibition or museum design, or organising space with a creative, critical-thinking focus on the psychology of users?
Our client is well known in the cultural, heritage + museum sectors, working with some of the trendiest + most prestigious UK cultural institutions, and collaborates with some of the world's most notable architecture firms (think Fosters, Heatherwick, Hopkins etc). Recently they have branched out into residential, commercial + retail spaces + can offer a truly broad range of projects to get your intellectual teeth into!
Their focus is on harnessing creative problem solving + cutting edge digital tools + technologies to create design strategies to optimise space UX for people - be those tourists + visitors, residents, shoppers or anyone else that inhabits an environment.
Some examples of the type of work you might be exposed to would be for example how to structure an interactive map to guide people around a museum, or how to creatively approach a branding + signposting strategy to create a particular feel for an urban space. Visiting sites to gather research and reporting into the psychology of a space and producing different wayfinding proposals.
This a creative, "non traditional" role that would suit an architectural professional who is guided by the psychology of design with a keen interest in graphics/branding.
It may suit creative people outside of architecture who have a natural talent for "thinking architecturally".
They can offer hybrid working (Monday + Friday WFH, while mid-week is collaborative), a commitment to fully training you + developing you within the role, ordinarily while fully immersed in live projects. And a clear path to career progression.
If you're a Part I or Part II that has a keen interest in the psychology of space and branding/UX, or if you're simply a creative person with some experience and exposure to wayfinding or exhibition design, we would like to hear from you!
