TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video. Our mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy. The Creative Lab is TikTok’s in-house creative service, dedicated to producing best in class work on the platform throughout Europe. Based in London, the Creative Lab will help and inspire brands and agencies to push creativity and partnerships on the platform.

We are looking for an agile Graphic Designer to embed Creative Lab’s principles for best practice in campaigns for a white list of leading global brands. Creating channel style guides and design frameworks to proactive pitches and responsive briefs, agency collaborations and in-house execution, you’ll partner with strategists, creatives and producers to bring out the best of TikTok’s formats, creators and culture for a hand-picked list of leader brands.

You’ll be able to distill key decisions and discussions and translate them into compelling visual messages and demonstrate a passion for the audience experience, as well as knowledge of how to leverage design to achieve communication goals. And you’ll have social media running through your veins.
