Responsibilities

The ideal Senior Designer candidate…

  • Has proven background and track record at executing and delivering top-quality design work (and a book to back it up)
  • Has a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of visual design (especially in the digital space). This means expertise or strong knowledge in site design, responsive design, mobile app design and visual ID.
  • Has the ability to solve and understand behaviors in the digital space. They’re a natural problem solver and understands the user journey – anticipating what people might like and are drawn to both aesthetically and functionally.

  • Is a collaborative and open-minded thinker. They should be able to conceptualize and express their ideas with other team members while helping elevate the work.
