Middleweight Digital Designer

We are an award winning Creative Digital Agency currently seeking a talented creative designer with solid experience of UX and UI design.

PASSION

We are looking for a super talented creative designer with a solid understanding of UX and UI design. You will demonstrate a good knowledge of traditional design skills (typography, branding and use of colour) and new web technologies. Our ideal candidate would have a genuine passion for digital design, web technologies and social media, with an enthusiastic and open-minded approach to collaborating on new ideas with the development team. Although knowledge of coding is not required for this role, a good understanding of web technologies is essential.

At DotLabel you will live and breathe digital design, creating anything from ground-breaking online marketing campaigns, to stunning websites and interactive interfaces for some of the most recognisable brands in the UK. In return you will be a highly creative and an extremely well organised individual with excellent communication skills, unfazed by tight deadlines.

We want team members who want to share that pride through creating innovative, user-driven and creative projects that champion usability, performance and the wow factor. 

 

LEARNING AND GROWING

Innovation does not just happen, we are looking for people who are willing to adventure, people who strive for continual improvement, people who like to push boundaries and explore. Art is never finished, only abandoned — Leonardo da Vinci

 

EXPERIENCE

Candidates should probably have a minimum of 3 years digital design experience, however if you can knock us off our feet with a killer portfolio then we want to hear from you. We want to see that you can solve problems. Show us examples of implementing creative and innovative solutions to common client problems—show us that you can apply a range of techniques to achieve client goals.

 

SKILLS

There are some skills that you just have to have, but we don’t expect applicants to know it all right off the bat, if you can show a propensity for learning new skills and implementing new ideas then that is a big plus.

• Highly creative digital design portfolio

• 3+ years experience designing scalable solutions across multiple devices

• Strong design layout, typography, branding and colour theory skills

• Awareness of industry trends, standards and embracing the ever changing social landscape

• Deliver a brief through from initial wire framing to final delivery

• UX design: User journeys, wire framing & storyboarding interactions

• UI design: Understanding the audience, purpose and context, as well as any limitations for the end user

• Understanding of information architecture • Capable of understanding and interpreting highly complex user design issues

• Excellent communication skills

We grow and maintain excellent relationships with clients so you can expect to pick up old projects alongside the new ones.

There are no pigeonholes, boxes or niches if you work here; you will be encouraged to have a voice and be expected to think on your feet.
