Our client are a niche fin tech company that focus on cryptocurrency and blockchain specifically, now currently looking for a permanent Senior Digital Designer to join their new London UK office in Central/East London! They are a part of one of the leading electronic institutional exchange brands and now well into the launch of their new product here in Europe.
As a small, growing team here in the UK they need an extremely driven, organised and proactive Designer who is really looking to drive their creative (across concept, digital design and roll out) for the new product. This candidate must be self-sufficient whilst also being a team player and a strong communicator, bringing Senior industry knowledge to the team in how to push a successful digital product in this market.
On a day to day basis this candidate will be producing web pages, microsites, emailers, UI elements, social campaigns/web banners and marketing promotions, from initial concept (using the best UX practices) all the way through to the final polished design and digital artwork. Knowledge of front end code would be a huge bonus but by no means essential, as long as there is an understanding of the limitations of code when working closely with Developers. There may also be some print design involved and some more integrated projects.
Skills & Experience:
- Have polished responsive web design experience.
- Advanced skills of Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator.
- Have a thorough understanding of the basic UX principles for responsive web.
- Used to working in smaller teams OR as the sole Designer.
- Experience working in a client-side environment.
- Print design experience.
- Knowledge of Sketch.
- Skills in InDesign for print.
It would be great to see case studies of design development in portfolios to show conceptual process - including any wireframes, prototypes, storyboards for web banners, followed by the final visuals displayed on screens (showing responsive on mobile and desktop).
