Voilà: (chezvoila.com) is an information design company. Since 2013, we combine analysis and design to visually communicate complex information. We are committed to sustainable development, the fight against climate change, gender equality, social development, transparency, diversity and inclusion. We have clients around the world, such as in Washington, New York, London, Brussels, Tokyo, Beijing and Montreal.

We are looking for someone who thinks visually, someone creative who can translate complex information into diagrams and graphs. It’s not about graphic design, but information design. Your tool of choice is not the Adobe Suite, but the Microsoft Suite, in particular Excel and PowerPoint. And often your tool is the pencil, for design. The result is a series of graphics in a presentation or report, a diagram explaining a strategy, an infographic combining data and graphics.
For example, a client sends us this …
… and we turn it into this.
To do this, you have to understand the subject of the data, the information. So you need an analytical mind and, often, knowledge of the particular field.
