Why ColoredCow?

In 2014 ColoredCow started with a simple core thought – that no meaningful idea should remain just an idea and that our work should support and enrich the lives we want to lead. Over time, ColoredCow has played a pivotal role in fueling our creative ambitions, our deep desire to do quality work, and to do it the right way – with care, harmony, and commitment. It has allowed us to create an environment for ourselves where we can execute our best possible work while continuously pushing the limit. 

It is a collective group which people can rely on for their diverse, challenging problems. It is a place where we can do the things the right way and have the opportunity to influence the outcomes. We work hard, with all of our heart, to create things that enrich our souls and add meaning to our lives. It is easier to do so when everyone is committed towards the same direction.

What are you required to do?
  • Conceptualise creative ways to represent clients’ ideas and your own solutions for the work we do for them, ranging from application workflows to marketing sites.
    This will involve creation of concept sketches, wireframes or working prototypes as a part of moving the project from idea phase closer to implementation.
  • Generate insights by asking questions and doing your own research, to know more about the project goals.
  • Find ways to better the execution processes to deliver impactful solutions.
  • Effectively collaborate with design teams to bring out the most resilient ideas, and with development teams for an effortless design handoff, empowering them to build the way you envisioned the design.
  • Build understanding of different domains such as healthcare, social sector, education etc…, along with the audience mindsets from those domains.
  • Establish communications methods to show relentless support to the clients and towards the progress of their projects.
    This will require being responsive and responsible towards their urgent or relaxed requests, with an appropriate plan of action.
  • Upgrade your design chops by learning from other design leaders and building on your own original design sense.
    Following design industry’s leaders and experimenting with your own style.
  • Contribute to the organisational development by creating resources and assets that don’t just execute the most immediate project targets but also solves a larger purpose.
  • Continuously push the boundaries for design outputs with strong information and visual skills. Create inspiring designs with powerful visual narratives.
  • Be flexible to adapt to the processes that work best for a particular project or a client.
  • Bring a productive and skillful use of design tools which includes the Adobe interactive suite, Sketch and others. Be open to experiment and use other tools as the need arises.
  • Skillfully navigate through timelines and commitments towards clients and teams to deliver exceptional results.
  • Embrace feedback, critique and failures to bounce back with even better results.
Bonus in your approach?
  • The act of not waiting to be told what to do, rather extending yourself to find opportunities to do better with each engagement.
  • Taking complete ownership in shipping your work, even if it is pending on others.
  • Energetic to stretch yourself to do extra, on top of what you were actually required to do.

(Optional read) Our journey in the last 5 years.

Over the last 5 years, while our core has remained the same, we have been experimental to be the best version of ourselves. Our experiments have been around forming the best processes for solving business challenges for our clients, to deliver the work with the best possible experience. We’ve also experimented and been successful with running a kitchen facility for ourselves to have access to food round the clock, building our office space full of greens, working remotely both within India and Internationally, working with international clients without hiccups, training students at engineering colleges without disrupting our work. We have experimented with sprinting and burning the midnight oil, and we’ve experimented with taking it easy and pacing things out. It has been an exciting journey worth every bit of it. The journey has taught us what works and what doesn’t, what’s valuable and what is wasteful. Over the years we have also strengthened our cultural values because we understand how important these are to keep us together and to give us happiness and satisfaction of working together. We have grown organically to be profitable, to build a team and a list of clients to produce the work we’re proud of. We have been fired up to evolve and do better as a company, to grow stronger with each passing year with no sign of this fire burning out.

The next 5 years are going to be phenomenal as well; we call on the designers who don’t just more the pixels but the world around them.
