This is Stockholm Design Lab

We are a multidisciplinary and diverse team of designers, art directors, strategists, and project managers – a friendly team of people who share the belief in design as a powerful tool to transform businesses and the society we live in.

Through close collaboration and agile teams, we speak our minds and seek solutions that answer the challenges our global and local clients and their users face. And we keep an unswerving focus on what lasts – on design that endures and makes a difference.

This is the job

When joining the team at SDL as a Brand Strategist/Account Director, you will contribute significantly when leading the strategic and creative processes through your to-the-point business thinking and fluent understanding and handling of complexity.

This is why your role is important

As a Brand Strategist/Account Director, you make an important contribution to Stockholm Design Lab’s offering. We believe that simple, remarkable ideas can transform businesses and brands, which requires strategic precision from the beginning to the end of each assigned challenge. Your ability to establish and convey such strategies through multi-stakeholder organisations is pivotal for the end result. You will lead the projects from the initial conversations, to research and insights – taking ideas from Figma boards and Keynote decks into the real world whilst smoothly leading the client from start to finish.
