Senior Digital Designer

Plymouth, Bristol, Sheffield, London or remote (UK based)

Do you have a passion for creating truly amazing experiences through next level UI & UX design? Can you work collaboratively with clients to bring ideas to life, and push the boundaries whilst guiding the visual direction to make every project exceptional?

If this sounds familiar and you relish the challenge of an exciting role within a rapidly growing business where no two days are the same, then this could be the perfect place for you!

As a Senior Digital Designer, you’ll be pivotal in realising concepts right through to delivery.

Whether you’re collaborating on a pitch to secure our next project or client, or working on a completely bespoke solution, you’ll be at the forefront of the design decisions. Collaborating with our creative teams throughout the project lifecycle, you’ll be able to own the visual direction, just how you see fit.

Talking to clients comes naturally to you, whether that’s facilitating design workshops, walking through concepts and ideas, you’ll hold the room to truly uncover and develop the project brief.

Client’s don’t always know what they want, but that’s ok. You have the unique ability to pick out the nuances in what's being said to get to the heart of it, and ensure we're hitting the mark every time.

You live and breathe exceptional design, and you’ve got your finger on the pulse when it comes to UI, UX, new trends and innovations. Keeping your creative mind sharp enables you to keep pushing visual boundaries to produce true masterpieces time and time again.

You understand the limitations that some brands can have, however your ability to think outside the box enables you to come up with ideas that seemed unimaginable. When necessary you’ll challenge ideas respectfully to ensure that we’re delivering something that’s truly engaging, intuitive and award worthy every single day.

With an attractive salary and benefits package, plus the opportunity to work remotely, you’ll be part of a rapidly expanding company, with amazing opportunities for personal growth, supported by training and mentoring to further refine your already highly tuned skills.

Where you’ll create impact;

  • You’ll lead on all visual aspects of a project, taking a strategic, bigger picture view, but not forgetting the all-important details.

  • Working with other graphic designers, you’ll be the brand ambassador for your clients, advising and directing on the best approaches each time.

  • Commercially savvy, you’ll collaborate with creative teams to generate innovative yet commercially-viable concepts and solutions.

  • Confident and experienced, you’re excited to share your knowledge with both clients and internal teams alike. Whether it’s a pitch presentation, a client workshop, or a team stand-up, you can definitely hold a room.

  • A cool head, you’re extremely comfortable working outside the ‘norm’. You’ll adjust your approach and style for each client and project (because no two are the same) to ensure an exceptional, tailored experience every time.

  • Working with the Design Manager, you’ll support the development of others in the design team, sharing knowledge and mentoring on projects, looking for opportunities to really help others learn and grow.

Desirable skills and experience;

  • Extensive experience designing for both digital and non-digital solutions.

  • Strong knowledge of UI and UX best practices.

  • Skilled at teasing out, creating, and communicating briefs effectively, to any audience.

  • Highly confident in communicating, and facilitating meetings and presentations.

  • At home using, and pushing the boundaries of the latest and greatest design, wireframe and prototyping tools. From Adobe Creative Suite to Microsoft Office, and many more, you’re not afraid to always learn something new.
