    Graphic Designer / Illustrator

    About the job

    • Sozo creates immersive augmented and virtual reality experiences that bring utility, discovery and wonder to the world. We believe great design produces engaging and emotive experiences that create delight for Sozo’s customers.
    • Are you a graphic designer with illustration skills and a passion for creating great user experiences? Someone who likes to be constantly challenged and push the limits of design whilst delivering what is practical? Someone who can yodel while brushing their teeth (we’d be super impressed, and a little envious).
    • We are looking for a designer with the technical know-how required to deliver outstanding quality design across a number of different mediums. Someone who can immerse themselves in Sozo’s brand as it develops while also being adaptable and working on our customers solutions using their brand styles (even if it looks like a 90’s banking website).
    • Armed comfortably with Adobe Creative Suite you have exposure to immersive app design, augmented and virtual reality applications and so much more (or at least wish you could have, because seriously, how many designers really have all this experience).
    • Sozo is part of a larger family of companies within the Alphawave group, based in Technopark, Stellenbosch. We are totally happy for you to work remotely, but don’t be a stranger, we love to spend face to face time together and enjoy such wild activities as full contract crocheting, interpretive dance and yodelling while brushing each other’s teeth (nobody has got this one right yet).

    What you will experience and learn:

    • This is a unique opportunity to get exposure and work with teams on complex and highly visual applications on mobile, desktop and other platforms. You will be exposed to branding, conceptualisation, marketing and customer engagement.
    • You will be part of a growing company in an exciting tech space and have an opportunity to learn how to design and develop visual content for AR/VR applications & simulations. You will learn about designing compelling and engaging user interfaces in Unity.
    • You will push everything you know about the Adobe Suite to the limit. You will learn how to walk in slow motion while looking insanely cool (we will throw in the smoke machine for dramatic effect).
    • You will have lots of autonomy in your role and work in a fun, fast paced and innovative environment. You will get free lunches daily and really really reeeeeally great coffee (and the upside is you can practice your barista skills!)
    • And most importantly you will get to work with a loveable bunch of hooligans tirelessly trying to exceed our customers’ expectations and create delight each and every day.

    What you need:

    • A relevant tertiary degree (e.g. BA in graphic design or fine arts)
    • 5 years’ experience doing design and illustration
    • You speak 12 languages (just seeing if you’re paying attention, one is sufficient as long as its Japanese English)


    • You have extensive experience using Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, PhotoShop, Xd)
    • You have a broad exposure in design and are not afraid to experiment
    • Have experience designing UI interfaces for mobile and desktop
    • You can spell Unity (dammit, just gave it away!)


    • Website design, responsive design, adaptive design
    • Experience designing for social media platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram,
    • YouTube)
    • Have an understanding of what augmented and virtual reality are
    • You know what Unity is (p.s. not the band)
    • Wishlist
    • Have done UI for an AR or VR app previously
    • Simple animation
    • Video editing
    • Understanding of UX / Gamification
    • Have done UI or design for a Unity app or game in the past (Yay!) Competencies
    • Awesome team player
    • Great sense of humour
    • Good communicator and comfortable presenting and defending your designs
    • to customers
    • Don’t take yourself too seriously (see Ben Zander’s rule #6)
    • Good time management skills
    • Ability to work on multiple projects at once without losing your sense of
    • humour...or your mind
    • Great sense of humour
    • Are comfortable challenging the status quo, not afraid to take a risk
    • Collaborate well with others
    • Patient
    • Ability to work under pressure
    • Attention to detail
    • Always learning
    • Great sense of humour (yes, we mean it!)
