Our job is creative which means we don’t sit on top of a specific vertical, like Facebook or Twitter. Wherever our client’s client is, that’s where we work. That often means we create motion graphics and landing pages, but just as often it means we are redesigning PowerPoint slides and proofing large-scale print runs.

As part of the internal design team you’ll be working with a variety of brands in different sectors.

What will you be doing?

  • Creating icons, illustrations, layouts, prototypes and anything else required by developers
  • Providing inspiration and guidance on content creation for web projects
  • Working closely with our creative, front-end and producers to deliver beautiful digital experiences
  • Supporting wider team in ensuring the user experience principles are maintained in user interface throughout projects

We are looking for someone with the following characteristics

  • An enthusiastic designer that understands responsive requirements
  • One to three years' agency experience
  • Solid creative work, particularly work for/within agencies is highly desirable. We rate experience, attitude, and common sense over formal qualifications
  • Experience working on large and complex interactive projects with multidisciplinary creative and technical teams
  • Experience with short production timelines, hard deadlines and agency demands.
  • A solid understanding of interactive web technologies
  • An uncontrollable desire to solve problems and make things
  • A keen eye for reading clients and team members, and tailoring your management approach to suit their needs
  • The flexibility to respond to changing project, client and business demands
  • A stickler for details
  • Fantastic written and verbal communication skills
  • The ability to maintain composure and focus when the escalating demands of work are mounting

Also, if you have experience working in financial services, education and the publishing sectors, this could be the role for you and an opportunity to propel your UI/UX Design career.
