About: Koi Footwear is the cool vegan footwear brand you’ve been searching for. For the alt girls, the trend lovers, the more classic and minimal amongst us and those who like to kick it in some sneaks - and sometimes we’re all of those, it depends what mood we’re in.

There is currently an exciting opportunity for a talented and motivated footwear designer to join our fast-growing team at Koi Footwear.

This role would be perfect for someone who is extremely passionate about the industry with a strong interest in footwear and is an out-of-the-box thinker, this role would cover both mens and womens footwear and various categories such as ankle boots and trainers, and different levels of creative complexity.

Before applying for this position consider the classic blue pill / red pill scenario, if you take the blue pill, you believe shoes are just a range of colours, or have to follow simple silhouettes and be basic, you essentially believe the status quo.  You take the red pill.. you arrive in Wonderland, re-write how shoes can look, and see how deep the rabbit hole goes. If you have the red pill mentality then this role is for you, make no mistake, we want to do something special in footwear.

The Role:

  • Brainstorming, developing and innovating Koi styles.
  • Working on a diverse range of shoes switching between classic styles to more concept focused ones.
  • Working alongside a variety of clients tailoring styles to suit each individual needs and briefs.
  • Working with the product developer to test and approve samples, and make adjustments where necessary.
  • Experiment and push the boundary in order to pursue ideas and concepts to make them a reality.
  • Testing shoes in person and giving final approvals.

About you:

  • You’re an out-of-the-box thinker, always looking to push the boundaries of your creativity by experimenting down paths not taken before.
  • Well organised, able to maintain records of your work and able to communicate effectively with various teams.
  • Able to work to strict deadlines with the ability to prioritise tasks depending on importance without guidance.
  • Proficient CAD – Illustrator/Photoshop skills.
  • Have team spirit and willing to develop and brainstorm creative ideas during meetings.
  • Few years experience in footwear design.
