Textile Designer

Gabriel's ambassador and the customer's advisor

As textile designer you will have a central position in the DesignMaster team, Gabriel's department for design and product development. Here we design the upholstery textiles, upholstery solutions and furniture components of the future, focusing on users’ needs, behaviour and wishes. The design and development projects cover everything from ideas to the final product and as part of a competent project team of textile engineers and project managers, you will work closely together with our internal and external customers and suppliers.

Your primary areas of responsibility will be:

  • Responsible for the aesthetic quality of your design projects.
  • Contribute with new fabric and textile upholstery designs.
  • Conduct trend and user analysis to bring new values to the customers.
  • Develop concepts and design briefs for new products.
  • Run an efficient product development process.
  • Make strong physical and digital product presentations.

You will act as Gabriel's ambassador and the customer's advisor in close cooperation with customers and colleagues. Your job will be to identify and develop product ideas and carry out design tasks where you will have plenty of opportunities to make good use of your knowledge of textiles. Sales support and developing presentation materials for Gabriel's key customers will also be part of your responsibilities.

You will be working full time in Aalborg, with about 30-40 days of travel a year.

Industriel textile design – Product development -  Good people skills

You have a relevant education in textile design and experience from a similar position, or you may have worked as a freelance designer with particular focus on upholstery textiles. You are experienced in working with industrial textile design and product development processes to reach a high aesthetic and functional quality in your designs. From your experience and a constant scouting for trends and new insights you are able to intiate new product ideas and can contrinute actively to the start of new development projects.

You have a broad knowledge of materials, which enables you to dive into the hands-on experience of designing as well as delivering tasks and projects at a high professional level. You have experience with developing and visualising design concepts in physical and digital presentations. Experience from working in cross-disciplinary teams with textile engineers, project managers, sales and marketing teams is a benefit.

You are creative, innovative and have a strong sense of design aesthetics and colours. You are confident in working independently to drive your design projects forward, but you also seek the value of being part of an multidisciplinary development team. Your high level of energy is a motivating force for your projects, and you are naturally taking lead in setting and reaching the targets of your development projects.

You are a strong communicator who enjoys engaging in dialogue with colleagues, customers and suppliers in an outgoing role where the user, the application and the presentation are a natural part of the design process. You are comfortable communicating and making presentations in English, the company language at Gabriel.

What you can expect from us

An opportunity to work with several parallel projects and contribute to the development of new products and solutions together with some of the world’s leading high-end brands.

Great possibility of professional development and further specialization within the textile business.

You will become a part of an international, successful, and innovative company with strong values.

Growth and the development of the potential of both colleagues and Gabriel is a strong priority since it is the key behind our customers and our own success. We believe that the right people with the right attitude create extraordinary results.
