Description

You’re a prolific digital designer with a strong interest in technology. You want to play a critical role in a small design studio. You like to be involved at every stage of the project and are passionate about creating applications that are both aesthetically and functionally beautiful. You’ve designed for mobile, web, and desktop and can proudly tell us about your work. You like to think through design details and produce pixel-perfect assets. It’s a major bonus if you can also prototype your designs in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript (or any tool of your choice). You’ve worked and managed a team of young and seasoned designers and know how to navigate navigate client situations with confidence. Our ideal candidate would have experience with the following:

  • Designing unconventional yet thoughtful web-apps to be built in HTML5, JS, CSS, Node
  • Creating responsive strategy for desktop and mobile UIs
  • Getting down and dirty into large datasets and putting together an information architecture plan
  • Creating intuitive application systems and interaction flows
  • 3D workflow - modeling objects in cinema4d (or similar) and exporting textures and meshes
  • Creating tight motion treatments in After effects, premier, or similar
  • Exquisite taste in typography, color, and composition
  • Creating unconventional, but viable solutions for complex problems
  • Designing with bleeding edge technology in mind to create the unexpected

We like to hire versatilists rather than specialists. So it’s okay if you aren’t an expert in all of the capabilities listed above, but we hope you’ve had experience with some of them and are excited to jump into unfamiliar territory.

Communication and personal initiative is critical for success in our studio. We look for candidates that have the following characteristics:

  • Excellent communication skills when working with the team and our clients
  • A desire to inspire the culture and share new ideas
  • The ability to manage yourself and others across multiple simultaneous projects
  • Past work that you can proudly show us and explain what you were responsible for

About Us

We love solving problems - it’s why we got into the world of consulting in the first place. Navigating new environments, business dynamics, and meeting passionate clients allows us to exercise our design talents in ways we never imagined. This means we work in fast-paced environments with new design challenges presenting themselves all the time. We value the ability to learn new skills and adapt to new environments quickly. We prefer versatilists to specialists.

How We Work

We don't operate like traditional agencies. Our designers and developers work together as a single unit and everyone works directly with our clients. We rely heavily on prototyping to iterate our way to an elegant solution. We work hard, take pride in our work, and enjoy the occasional Friday cocktail.
