  • Present your designs clearly and passionately, with solid theory and rationale behind them.

  • Be a good communicator; comfortable in front of clients, able to build relationships and represent the agency externally.

  • Design delightful and useful UI interactions and animations, documenting and communicating them clearly through low-fi prototypes, sketches and mock-ups.

  • Understand the possibilities and limitations of interface development and work closely with developers to refine and polish interactions.

  • Work independently as a key member of the London experience team, whilst also maintaining a close working relationship with other creatives and the Creative Director in the Bristol office.

Requirements:

  • Three or more years of experience and proven track record.

  • Strong portfolio to be presented during interview.

  • Hands-on experience creating wireframes, prototypes, storyboards, user flows, etc.

  • Experience using tools such as Sketch, Photoshop, Illustrator, InVision and any other industry standard prototyping/animating tools you feel help aid your role.

  • Understanding of basic front-end languages: HTML5, CSS3 JavaScript.

  • Creative ideas with problem solving mindset.

  • Experience working in an agile/scrum development process.

  • Willing to travel to the Bristol office on occasions - approximately 2-3 times per month (travel expenses covered).

  • Be open to receiving objective criticism and improving upon it.

In return we offer a fabulous working environment based on Old Street roundabout, excellent benefits, the chance to work on exciting projects, a place to learn constantly and make great friends.
