👆 Yes, we hate labels too….
We’re currently looking for a Lead UI Designer with a focus on UX to join our London team. Ideally, you’ll be somebody with 5+ years experience and are comfortable leading client engagements. You’ll have strong design skills across the board, love solving interaction design challenges and creating usable products.
We’re a small group of product design experts who love the work we do. We value upholding the principles of a user-centred design process and delivering solutions of unparalleled quality. We like to create an environment where our designers are free to create the best and most fulfilling work of their career.
First and foremost we need an experienced UI designer. Someone who brings their own style to their work whilst creating something that is fit for purpose. But we need a designer polymath who can take their hand to any design related task, including; research, wireframing, prototyping, iconography, illustration, animation and video. If the following values resonate with you, we’d love to talk.
You are cognisant about every decision you make and capable of recalling your design decisions when communicating concepts back to team members and clients. You take pride in communicating clearly and understanding the success of the project relies upon it. You understand when to push your ideas and when to respect the ideas of others to come to a solution everyone feels is correct. You communicate an idea on a whiteboard or paper faster than you can in software.
You pay attention to the details, but not until you know the broad direction of what you’re designing is nailed down. You can handle solving complex problems across more than one project at once. You are experienced in a wide range of design tools and techniques, but can take your hand to anything new. You are able to work in any medium and know how to adapt to the challenges of different devices, widths and interaction methods. You prototype and thoroughly test everything you do. You relish complex problems and trying to find the simplest solution. You understand how to design for a specification, and how what you design needs to be built. Any coding ability is a bonus.
You understand the importance of usability and the fact you are always designing something for other people. You want to ensure you know the market, understand the target users and business objectives before putting pen to paper. You can wireframe quickly and accurately without worrying about visual design and building towards something that holds together as a system. You can see the interconnectedness of a complex system and identify the most efficient pathways to achieve user goals.
You do your best work when you consult your users and your peers. You’re not precious about your ideas and are always open to having your assumptions challenged. You actively ask for help and feedback rather than sit and stew on a problem on your own. You love iterating and improving your designs with feedback. You can work with developers collaboratively and remotely, making compromises and enhancing your designs as they are built.
You believe that design is not how something looks, but how it works. You understand the power of design to make or break ideas, products and businesses. You follow design and love talking about design to colleagues and clients alike. You download and pay for apps just to see how they’re designed. You see friction in everything you use and look for ways to remove it.
Does this sound like you? If so, please apply through our job portal – button below. We’d love to see your work but we’re more interested in understanding your approach to design problems rather than seeing just the final deliverables. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
