Our client, a leader in the media space, is looking to add a UI/UX Designer to their team. In this role you will directly contribute to and execute the creative vision, design and art direction for one of their main products and other emerging digital products. You will help inform and set the design standard for the company and the industry in an unfettered, creative-forward environment. The creative vision set would be across TV, mobile and desktop environments allowing for ultimate creative expression.

You will be working in a collaborative Agile environment with developers to understand technological capabilities, with product managers to understand business strategy, and with senior leaders from editorial and marketing to capture the other elements of creative expression. You will also work with audiences testing design ideas and assumptions and validating prototype mockups to help deliver a best-in-class media experience.

You should be skilled in UI, UX and motion graphics for enterprise-class tools and products and will report directly to the Art Director.

  • Facilitating collaboration and engagement between members of the team to ensure sound design, editing, motion graphics, composition layout and interactivity align with product vision
  • Creating information architectures, wireframes, screen flows, prototypes, design briefs, design specs, detailed page schematics and guidelines with minimal direction
  • Collaborating seamlessly with internal cross-functional and external agency teams in an Agile environment to deliver against creative vision
  • Influencing product teams and the organization to achieve solutions that produce great results in terms of user adoption and engagement
  • Creating full graphic packages using Adobe After Effects for video content that is complimentary to the app experience.
  • Working with the technology team to understand the documented technology standards for the platform and browser/OS specifications and ensuring all assets track to technology and program standards

What you'll need

  • At least 3-5 years of professional experience in motion graphics, UI/UX design and brand development
  • An undergraduate degree in graphic design, art, human-computer Interaction, communications or a related field
  • Experience with Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows
  • Proven experience and strength with Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects), any interactive prototyping software
  • Demonstrated experience developing and communicating UX patterns, design guidelines, and templates
  • Ability to design and deliver a UX that is rich, immersive, pleasing, simple and easy to navigate
  • Experience creating early conceptual designs and demonstrating innovation
  • Experience designing a complete suite of screens that effectively deliver on business goals and requirements
  • Experience facilitating development of product prototypes for usability testing and proof-of-concept purposes
  • Experience gathering and assessing business requirements from product and segment representatives
  • Knowledge and experience developing cohesive brand experiences by creating and maintaining a style guide
