Graphic Designer with UI/UX


Remote working position (home working) until new offices open in London

Start date ASAP

Our exciting multi-national client is looking for an adaptable, passionate, multi-discipline designer with a strong background in traditional graphic design principles, and a focus on UI/UX. We are recruiting for a mid-level designer with a broad skill set. You should have solid commercial experience, but demonstrable skill and talent is more important than experience.

You will be working on a range of projects, that use all the latest cutting-edge technologies. My client is shaking up their sector, and rapidly expanding their presence in the UK, and there is a huge opportunity for career progression.

Please only apply if you have excellent skills, and relevant, recent experience. You will have been working for at least two years as a designer, ideally involving UI/UX in your day-to-day role, and will have a solid skillset including illustration and animation (mainly 2D, but 3D a bonus), video, and interaction, using the latest technologies.

Your portfolio will be looked at first, before your CV is even opened, so make sure you showcase your best work! Applications without a portfolio will not be considered. It is acceptable for your portfolio to be online or as PDF, but it should make it clear what work is yours, especially if linking to online sites.

This is a remote (home working) position with the intention of moving into offices in London, so a South-East location is preferable, unless you plan to relocate or are happy with the distance you may end up commuting.

Your responsibilities will include:

- Designing new products from scratch. This includes product features, landing pages, mobile apps (iOS and Android).
- Production of user requirements, personas, storyboards, flowcharts, user flows, wireframes, visual interfaces, style guides, design prototypes, and design specifications.

You should be competent in the following:

- Design and typography skills
- Grid systems, especially for web and mobile
- Web or mobile-based technologies (HTML5, CSS3, Swift)
- Adobe Creative Cloud, especially Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign
- Use of other design tools such as Sketch
- Prototyping tools such as Axure, Invision, Principle

This is an excellent opportunity with the potential for long tenure, and plenty of chance for career progression.

You must be currently residing in the UK, with a right to work in the UK, with a native standard of fluent English.
