Job Description:

Position is remote, but candidates need to be in USA. 

Our Fortune 500 client is seeking a Senior Visual Designer to create a robust “Email Design System”, or “EDS”. In this consultant role you will build an Email Design System that will be used as a tool to bring speed, efficiency and consistency to the creation of email that they send to their members each year. The Email Design System will enable any designer within the organization to create consistently-designed, properly-rendered emails without being an email design expert.

Key Deliverables:

  • The Email Design System will cover the what, how, when, and why of email design.
  • You will deliver a well-organized Figma file that includes a robust collection of building blocks (or “components”) that other designers can use to create new email design.
  • Your email building blocks will include standardized elements like headers, footers, buttons, text styles, lists, layouts, starter email templates, etc.
  • Your file must be easy to navigate and understand.
  • Your file must include written documentation on standards and best practices on how to properly construct new email designs from the email building blocks.
  • Everything must be on-brand and tested to work in the most common email clients.
