Strategic Digital Agency from Amsterdam. We help Meaningful Matters stay ahead with long-lasting strategy and bold creativity.

Design Lead



Are you an experienced digital Art Director, looking for new challenges and eager to make an impact on society? GRRR is looking for you.

About the job

We are looking for a great personality to join our team. Do you like to mix creative digital work with leading a design team? Are you a boundary pusher and an original thinker? Do you never confuse WCAGs with CRMs, PSDs and ESGs? Do you like to strengthen our creative culture? Then we have a great job for you.

Design at GRRR

In design we strive to be leaders, not followers. We’ve got awards to prove it – that sounds arrogant, sorry. But more importantly the quality of our work is proven by long lasting collaborations with inspiring clients. We believe that perfection is boring, so we put a human touch to everything we do. We make ambitious plans possible and make scary changes likable.

In this position, you will be kicking off projects, creating ideas and leaving comfort zones. You work on branding and mainly digital products. You work closely with our experienced team of designers, strategists, developers and project managers. You share inspiration and new design trends within the team. You are outgoing and love going to conferences and watching talks to get inspired.

As a team lead you will spend about 25% of your time guiding other designers in their development and creating the requirements for the team to make their best work ever. As Art Director you create awesome work and are the lead in digital or branding projects.

We think this job could be your next step. Your chance to lead a team, with bigger clients, more responsibilities or just working on the bigger challenges of our time.

GRRR, an agency for Meaningful Matters

We believe that the world should be and can be cleaner, more honest and more inclusive. We combine strategy, design & tech. And we only work with clients that go for positive social impact. And yeah, everybody is talking about impact these days, so that’s why we became a Certified B-Corp to prove our claim. We’re based in central Amsterdam, but our team is living all over.

About you

Do apply when...

  • You are serious about design, and not too serious about yourself
  • You are an image maker and know how to create concepts
  • You like to grow in guiding and coaching fellow designers
  • You create a safe space in which creativity can flourish
  • You can tell passionate stories (also for our clients)
  • You want to take your craft to the next level and make a positive impact (and avoid cliches like the formulation of this sentence)

  • You are digital at heart. You can think in interaction and motion
  • You create and don’t follow trends

Give us an impression of who you are by answering the application form below. A motivation letter is not needed. You can respond until April 30th. But we’ll start right away with interviewing people, snoozing = losing.
