London-based communications consultancy and creative agency are looking for a senior UX Designer.

Clients of this agency benefit from their full-service agency expertise, providing an integrated, responsive service that covers brand, internal and sustainability communication as well as corporate and financial reporting, all underpinned by market-leading digital capabilities.

We’re looking for a Senior User Experience designer with strong creative skills, to help plan, structure and create better, more truly user-centred corporate web sites and other online interfaces. In this role you will work closely with other designers, consultants, project managers and the tech team. You will not only have a deep knowledge of best practice UX, and a keen interest in harnessing user data and other forms of research to inform a thorough, evidence based approach, but also strong creative and aesthetic capabilities which you can bring together to help clients meet their often complex and challenging digital communication objectives.

You will have the opportunity to work closely with some of the UK and Europe’s leading companies, using your skills and judgment to help reinforce the agency’s long-standing reputation as an innovative, insightful and forward looking digital agency.

  • Development of rapid prototypes, using platforms such as Azure or Invision
  • Planning, designing and documenting information architectures, including sitemaps, taxonomy and template/component extent
  • Creating functional specifications for both internal tech teams and external build agencies
  • Raising the profile for UX function/methodology within company

The principal design responsibilities for the role include:

  • Setting design parameters (responsive grids)
  • Creating design and UI patterns (e.g. navigation)
  • Establishing template/component workflow (alongside page designs)
  • Ensuring project goals are maintained during design development
  • Conceptual and visual design across a wide range of digital applications

Skills

  • Digital design background driven by user experience
  • Solid technical knowledge and the experience framing design within frameworks and technical form
  • Ability and experience distilling complex ideas into workable solutions
