  • Translating concepts into wireframes and mock ups that lead to an intuitive user experience.
  • Designing and delivering prototypes optimised for a wide range of devices and interfaces.
  • Deliver strategic design and user-experience decisions related to the latest digital features and trends.
  • Working and collaborating with other team members.
  • Be willing to go above and beyond the brief and champion new ideas.

Our requirements:

  • Expert user of digital related software, including Adobe Creative Cloud and prototyping tools
  • Experience in using UX practices to design solutions with consideration of layout, grid structures, brand, colour and typography

  • Ability to work with clients to understand detailed requirements and design complete creative solutions to meet their needs
  • Ability to communicate your designs, rationale and solutions passionately and intelligently
  • Be excited about collaborating and communicating closely with project team members and clients
  • Help team members, share knowledge and experience with them, and learn from them
  • Be open to receiving feedback and constructive criticism
  • Be passionate about all things design and other areas of design and innovation
  • Research and showcase knowledge in the industry's latest trends and technologies
  • Knowledge of HTML and CSS (desirable but not essential)
