Think City Institute – Associate or Senior Associate (Product Development – Visual Branding)

Through more than a decade of experience in city-making Think City has witnessed first-hand the lack of widespread access to knowledge and best practice principles for professionals and a reluctance on the part of the wider community to be involved in the city-making process. Think City Institute was established as both a knowledge repository and an advocacy and learning arm of Think City. Through our own work and that of a wide range of international partners TCI is building capacity, advocating best practice and is now in the process of building Asia’s most extensive digital library of urbanism.
