Our large consulting client in New York is looking for a senior designer to assist with creating design elements for
internal client applications.
Using key design tools along with a variety of customizations and add-ins which supplement the core functionality of that application and help make it easier/faster to create and apply consistent styling, icons and other graphic elements. The scope of work will be to lead some research to identify current patterns in usage for those utilities and opportunities to streamline, simplify or otherwise enhance. And then to work with engineers/developers to design and implement those improvements as well as create some integrated self-serve libraries for design assets.
This designer should be Lead-level or a relatively mature/experienced Sr. Designer, able to be a thought partner to the Product Manager and Engineering Lead, working independently to create and execute research plans as well as to create UI for tools. There is an aspect of this work that involves creating tools which support the consistent application of clients' brand identity and associated design system so a fairly high degree of literacy in visual design/brand design will be helpful, but they won’t be responsible for creating or extending the design language itself.
