As part of the Design team you'll be working on products and services for some of the world’s biggest brands. You'll be involved from planning through to execution, becoming an ever-present advocate for the user. You'll help your team to make informed design decisions, placing the needs of the user and the business at the very heart of your work.
Your interest and focus will be in human-centred visual design, supported by a broad knowledge of common user interface design patterns, iconography, typography and colour theory. You'll enjoy concepting and visualising solutions in response to the problems, ideas and opportunities you help extract from users and stakeholders.
You'll be most effective collaborating alongside engineers, strategists and other skilled team members in order to respond to the varying constraints of each project. You'll be keen to drive and justify your design decisions using research data, design principles, prototypes and the resulting user-testing learnings.
As a Senior Product Designer you'll be at the heart of the project, able to draw on your broad knowledge of design to influence and lead many of the project's design decisions. You'll also be mentoring other designers, both in day-to-day project activities and more formal career development reviews.
