• Experience with a specific focus on UI design, a proactive, self-driven individual that has an equally strong team ethos.
• Good communication and interpersonal skills in order to convey complex design concepts clearly to a variety of stakeholders within the organisation.
• As obsessed with the finer detail as you are with the creative vision. Striving to deliver pixel perfect designs, that deliver.
• Solid understanding of visual and user-centered design. A keen interest in current trends in design and communications and the ability to turn them into cutting edge realities.
• A love of prototyping to bring designs to life.
