Senior Digital Designer / Art Director

FULL-TIME

Job description

How&How are a talent-driven, creative company with offices in London and Lisbon. Since 2020, we’ve been building a nurturing home for the world’s best thinkers, most talented creatives and restlessly curious minds in a collaborative, ego-free culture that nurtures creative ambition and promotes confidence and growth.

One of the core principles of “leftright” thinking at How&How is equality. This applies to equality in our workforce too. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and we’re committed to diversity and inclusion. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, or any other legally protected status.

We’re looking for the person—not the job description. If you’d like to be part of our family, we’d love to hear from you. You may be exactly what we’re looking for... we just don’t know it yet :)


What we're looking for:

How&How are seeking a full-time Senior Digital Designer to join our growing global family. You will have raw talent, curiosity and a strong creative instinct — and help us deliver work for our clients which is bold, conceptual and different. You will be a team player who will be generous with ideas, and have strong beliefs — loosely held.

You will be the driving force behind digital output, and work in our digital design team to develop the creative vision of a project. The majority of the creative heavy lifting takes place by you, and it's essential you’re not afraid to get stuck in on all levels of work. Egos get left at the door.

Topline: we need a well-rounded, team-player to push our digital design projects forward. You’ll have strong problem-solving skills; knowledge of UX processes and methodologies and great interpersonal skills too.


What we’re after:

  1. 6+ years hands-on experience as a UI / UX Designer
  2. 100% credible in our core discipline of digital design
  3. Notable experience designing complex user interfaces for web and/or mobile applications
  4. Thorough understanding of user-centred design, responsive design, mobile first design, and web standards
  5. Deep understanding of industry standard tools (in particular Figma)
  6. Strong problem-solving skills and knowledge of UX processes and methodologies
  7. Efficient, detail-oriented, organised, and able to work under tight deadlines
  8. Strong multi-tasking skills; able to prioritise own work (and ask questions when it's ambiguous)
  9. Strong creative instincts and willingness to push further through experimentation
  10. Advanced understanding of how to apply the methodologies of interaction design and research to business problems

— Additional tools are a big plus: motion, code, illustration, etc

— Curious about brands and the positive impact they can have on the world

— Interested in more than just design

— Ambitious self-starter who can thrive in ambiguity

— Comfortable engaging with the strategic dimension of our work

— Able to get under the skin of clients issues, strong on content as well as visuals

— Able to build personal relationships and trust with clients

— Articulate, confident and assertive in presenting work

— Strong creative instincts and willingness to push further through experimentation
