Key areas of responsibility

As a Product Designer, you’ll show the ability to balance form and function creatively, whilst inviting both client and user needs. You see this as a challenge, and do whatever it takes to see a project through to a high level of quality. As a Digital Product Studio, we need your collaborative design skills and strategic thinking at every stage of the project, from competitor benchmarking to wireframes, through to visual design and prototyping, ultimately designing amazing digital experiences, products and platforms for our clients.

On top of this you have a desire to keep up to date with the fast paced development world and like to experiment with emerging techniques and technologies.

  • A portfolio that reflects your strengths across both UX and visual design skills
