    <![CDATA[Lead Web Designer]]> Artizan seeks a Lead Web Designer.

    Who Are We Looking For?

    We are seeking a lead designer with a strong online portfolio that will make our eyes pop and our hearts jump. Our dream designer is interested in pushing boundaries and producing work that’s unique, clever and engaging. Are you that kind of designer? If so, we’d love to bring your talents into play on a wide variety of projects for brands that have strong personalities and a desire to stand out from the rest.

    Who Are You?

    • You’re passionate about creating online design solutions that are a pleasure to use
    • You are pro-active in understanding client requirements, accommodating feedback, flagging potential issues and suggesting creative workable solutions
    • You’re a smart and creative team-player with a can-do attitude
    • You’re comfortable working in a small, fast-paced team involving a wide variety of projects, managing your own time and delivering to deadlines.
    • You understand branding, responsive design and great user experience 
    • You have a kickass online portfolio that includes examples of website design that showcases your talent

    Who Are We?

    CRAFTSMEN

    Creating an amazing website means crafting it from conception to execution, using creativity and outside-the-box thinking. So, you prefer to work off templates, then we hate to say it but we’re most likely not the right fit for you. But if it’s top class design and user experience that floats your boat, then we'd love you to join us in our battle against mediocrity.

    PASSIONATE

    We love what we do. And we love working with clients who are as passionate about having a brilliant website as we are about creating it for them. That’s why we’re looking for someone who shares this passion to join our team.

    Who Are We Not?

    CUT AND PASTERS

    We don’t believe one size fits all. Creating amazing web experiences for clients means recognising their uniqueness as a brand, and copying an existing site does anything but that.

    YES MEN

    If experience has taught us one thing it’s that a great designer is also a great problem-solver, and that means being able to push back, knowing that the final result will be better for everyone. So when you say “it would be better this way” we'll love you for it. That’s our way, and it’s how we ensure that our clients always get the best work and enjoy the best results.
