The position
As our Head of Design, you will be responsible for our creative processes and you will be defining the creative direction for our agency in general and for many of our clients ranging from start-ups to large enterprises. It will be your responsibility to ensure an increasingly higher level of quality on the design and experience parts of our projects. You will lead our relatively small (but rapidly growing) creative department consisting of a digital designer on staff and freelancers on the side. Your leadership will be defined by your own work so on top of ensuring the right level of quality on all projects, you will execute work yourself running design processes, contributing to client pitches and presentations, and doing everything from marketing campaigns to creating completely new identities for clients and to digital product design.

You will be the main point of contact with some clients during the design phase and you will also be working closely with our development teams to create a perfect user experience.

At Bærnholdt we are not only a consultancy. We are also developing our own products as a range of SaaS solutions where we need your direction and vision to be rolled out as well.

Your profile
You are a visionary perfectionist with a strong creative drive and a well exercised ability to convey enthusiasm for your work to clients and colleagues. You have strong opinions and attitude and know when to fight for your visions and when not to have a strong ego.

You take pride in executing various kinds of creative tasks and can find the interesting aspects in solving small projects and understand that in a relatively small start-up agency, everything cannot be huge prestigious campaigns with enormous budgets all the time.

You have extensive experience leading and executing in visual projects and communicating with clients on pitches and during projects and can provide an impressing portfolio of shipped cases across a broad spectrum of different types of projects and clients.

We offer
A great variety in projects where you will be forming the direction of your own professional development, the project types you work on, the level of client contact, and specialization of your skills.

You will be joining a young team in which we enjoy hanging out together, taking on company trips, attending friday-bars, and building cool solutions that move our clients forward.

We take pride in having a work place with plenty of (bad) dad jokes and in general we have an informal tone amongst us.

We have spent a lot of energy in making our offices a nice, relaxed place of working and lunch, coffee, tea, beers, soda, fruit and much more is of course included.

We are easy to get to – only three minutes walk from the closest metro stop (Skjolds Plads).

We expect
You are an ambitious problem-solver that can own this key role of our agency by elevating our digital solutions to the next level. You are comfortable presenting your work to others and thrive working both alone, in teams and directly with clients.
