Want to join a growing global company and work with some of the best known companies around the world? We're on the lookout for designers to help us create exceptional experiences for our clients and their customers. We are particularly looking for graphic designers who have an interest and experience in cartography and digital mapping design skills. You will be based primarily in our London studio and work as part of the wider global team of designers, planners, strategists and researchers across all stages of our projects. You have the opportunity to deliver innovative wayfinding and information systems for the world’s leading cities, organisations and institutions.

About the role
Working at Applied means working on all aspects of the design process. From research, through strategy and concept, to detailed design and implementation. We expect designers to be motivated and passionate, with a keen graphic eye and ambition to deliver projects of the highest quality.
The focus of your work will be map building and designing early in the design phase, followed by the mastering and artworking of print and digital maps in later project phases. You may be called upon to work on other design tasks.
Who we are looking for
