What does this job involve?

The successful web designer will concentrate on designing rich and engaging websites and web applications. Your work will play a key part in major client-focused projects across the company's portfolio, as well as with how the company will be visually presented, by working on marketing collateral and the company's website. You will be part of the design & user experience team, reporting directly to the Head of Creative. This will involve taking projects from conception through to realization. You will create user-journeys from initial concept, prototyping through to final responsive design, presenting them to staff and stakeholders.

You will need to have a minimum of two year’s commercial experience, ideally within an agency environment. You must have a creative background with a good understanding of user experience design. This will include an understanding of typography, composition and grid systems with a strong portfolio that backs this up. Since you will be juggling more than one project at a time, you will require strong time management skills. You will need knowledge of industry standard design tools that includes Sketch. A background with the Adobe Suite will also be helpful. Some basic knowledge of HTML and CSS would be ideal but not essential.
