About This Role
Curiosity is your driving force, with empathy as a foundation. You deeply understand client business objectives. Armed with that understanding, you advocate for audiences using design: through beautiful interfaces, interactive digital experiences, and the elusive “wow” factor. Your role's primary focus is website design, but we also offer stretch opportunities in designing apps, systems, whitepapers, presentations, and more. You are a proactive problem solver and seek to share learnings with the rest of the team. You skillfully translate design language for a variety of stakeholders and team members. You are able to bring those who may not quite "get" design to your side, because you can pivot and prioritize output based on the unique needs of the project. At the end of the day, you will produce engaging visuals that have purpose and resonate with a variety of audiences.
