Video

Our mission at Piaggio Fast Forward (PFF) is to build technology products that move the way that people move. In all things we do, we believe that design comes first. Just like our parent company who invented the Vespa, we are a technology and mobility company dedicated to lifestyle products; ours just happen to be robots, not scooters.

We are looking for an innovative Graphic Designer who we can count on to ensure consistency in our visual communications across all consumer touchpoints. You will champion the value of design within the team and across the company. We will rely on your eye for refinement, clarity and simplicity to continue to build a new brand (PFF), launch new products (gita) and explain new product categories.

You will create visual content in support of PFFs corporate voice for print, motion, UI, environmental, social media assets, and packaging. An ability to work efficiently with collaborators and execute designs based on a strategic direction is key. We value not only your creative eye, but also your approach to problem solving and critical thinking.

Responsibilities:

  • Work with leadership and communications partners to create visual narrative and story of the PFF and gita brands across media.
  • Help manage processes to ensure design deliverables and timelines are met.
  • Work with design counterparts to ensure continuity across initiatives, categories, and projects.
  • Art direct e-commerce photo shoots (including prop, scene, and shot-list selection) and help manage the image selecting, editing, and retouching processes.
  • Prepare visual guidelines for company-wide creative assets.
  • Design and maintenance of mygita.com, piaggiofastforward.com, as well as the mygita app.
  • Design and layout of graphics for user manuals, packaging, and printed collateral.
  • Assistance of C Levels for presentations for board meetings or major events.

Requirements:

  • BFA/BA in Graphic Design or other relevant field.
  • 3-5 years of graphic design experience delivering high profile design for consumer brands.
  • Proficient ability to apply and perform graphic design skills, including drawing/sketching, typography, color theory, use of texture, spacing, scale, hierarchy, visual presentation development, layout, and branding.
  • Expert-level knowledge of current trends in color, fashion, technology, communications, experience, art, and other design influences.
  • Solid foundation in typography, layout, and general design.
  • Strong proficiency in logo and iconography design.
  • Attention to detail when finalizing designs.
  • Mastery of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Xperience Designer, After Effects, Premiere).
  • Experience with Keynote, PowerPoint, and Google Slides.
  • Proven experience implementing visual design systems across a range of platforms in an iterative software development environment.
  • Ability to function independently and in a team environment.
  • Ability to work on several concurrent projects and manage time wisely.

Hard, novel and interesting problems to solve; great people, cool robots and a handful of dogs -- it's all good stuff.

Controller

My favorite part about working at Piaggio Fast Forward is the people. They create an environment at PFF that makes it a place I enjoy spending time. After all, PFF internally stands for Pretty Fun Friends. That’s what you’ll get working at PFF.

Ryanne
Director of Operations and People

Being a part of pioneering something so innovative is truly special but it’s the people that keep me here and make me want to work hard. The fast growth always provides new challenges to solve and there’s the opportunity to learn as much as you want.

Naz
Design Lead

PFF is equal parts challenging and rewarding. I have the opportunity here to help build something from the ground up. At the same time I'm expanding my knowledge of design across disciplines through product development from concept to completion.
