On working in-house…
Joining our in-house design team at Flodesk offers unique benefits: Brand & product live under one roof: our small in-house brand team often collaborates closely with our product design team. This synergy is unique to Flodesk and essential for achieving our vision of a consistent experience between our external brand presence (like the website, social media, ads, etc) and the software product itself. A diverse freelance pool brings fresh perspectives: in addition to our core team, we have the privilege of collaborating with a diverse pool of talented freelancers, including top design firms and motion graphics specialists. These external collaboration projects bring fresh perspectives and incredible talent to our projects. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn from experts and incorporate new ideas into our work. A commitment to excellence: so many companies say they are “design-driven” or “have good design”—but we really mean it. Our design team is comprised of top talent and we hold ourselves to a very high bar when it comes to typography, form, color, and core graphic design principles. This excellence is part of what makes Flodesk stand out in a sea of competition, so the entire company—including executive leadership—is committed to supporting the design team with resources to ensure continuous creative innovation. Collaborative environment: We believe the magic moments that push a project from good to great come from creative collaboration. As such, we actively encourage brainstorming sessions and idea sharing among team members and stakeholders. We have a lot of fun! This approach ensures that we tap into the collective creativity of our team, leading to innovative design solutions and ensuring we maintain a level of excellence in everything we touch. Member-first design approach: our in-house team takes a holistic approach to design, considering not just the visual aspects of a given project but also the functionality, user experience, and brand consistency. We put our members at the heart of everything we do, many times putting prototypes or sketches in front of them at early stages in a project to get early feedback. We find this approach brings continuous fresh energy to our projects and ensures the work we output is a “hit” with our audience—time and again.
Working in a small, in-house team at a startup like Flodesk presents unique challenges. Versatility and adaptability is key—each team member often has to wear multiple hats and solve creative problems quickly. This might not be the ideal environment for everyone, but it can be wildly exciting and invigorating for creatives who enjoy fast-paced projects, making a huge visible impact for our small business members with every project, and enjoy an environment where design excellence is a core part of the company’s DNA.
