I’m still working through my favorites from Fast Company’s list of “The World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies,” and today we have a firm that came in #3 on their list for Design companies. It’s New York City’s Rockwell Group, which is the company behind my favorite airport terminal (jetBlue’s JFK Terminal 5) and many of Starwood’s hotels. They also did this year’s set for the Oscars and a groundbreaking playground in partnership with KaBOOM!. It may sound like they’re an architectural firm, but Rockwell Group is more than that—they also do product design and set design. It’s all about creating “immersive environments.” They even have a book entitled Pleasure: The Architecture and Design of Rockwell Group that showcases “the hotels, theaters, restaurants, stadiums, casinos and other public spaces created by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group.”
Rockwell Group is clearly at the very high end of design firms. They have worked on so many big name projects that it’s hard not to have seen some of their work in person. The only problem that I have with Rockwell Group’s “design” is that their website isn’t all that user friendly. It’s built in Flash, which means that I can’t link you straight to all of the interesting stuff on it. You’ll have to browse the site yourself by starting at the home page. Fortunately, the site is filled with great information on the company, so you’ll be able to get a really good feel for what they’re about and whether you might be a fit. Rockwell Group doesn’t list specific openings on their Jobs page (it’s titled Work For Us in the About dropdown), but they do say “if you are passionate, creative, smart, hardworking, and looking for your next challenge,” that they’d like to hear from you. They mention jobs like Architect, Interior Designer, Graphic Designer, Business Analyst, Set Designer, and Writer, so there seems to be something for everyone. You can apply for a position here.
