AQUENT is partnering with one of our COOLEST clients to help them find a UI & Logo Designer for their Digital Design team in Richmond, VA.
We are looking for a UI designer resource that also has logo design experience and likes designing logos. We have quite a few internal product logos that need designs, and at least one UI for a website/app that needs design work.
This team is responsible for several internal-facing applications that range from marketing/portal sites to internal applications that will be used on internal teams and/or open-sourced to the public at some point in the future. They also support internal branding efforts for several products that include creating logos using the standard enterprise color palette for use internally to separate products form one another visually, and to help increase visual recognition of the products and their role in our every-growing library of products.
As such, an ideal candidate will possess strong UI/UX design skills and have a passion and skill for designing product logos. The contract will be a relatively even combination of designing product UIs from scratch, re-factoring existing UI designs to function better for a product-centric organization, and establishing visually striking branding for several products in the library. No coding experience is necessary, but familiarity with working with developers on a cross-functional agile team is desired.
The day-to-day activities of the ideal candidate will consist of creating high-fidelity mockups and logo versions/iterations for use in our apps and for developers to interpret into application code/features
Strong experience with visual design/UI mocking tools: Photoshop, Sketch, Balsamiq, Envision, etc
Experience working creatively within a given color/design pattern, able to find creative new ways of expressing the corporate color scheme in designs
Intermediate logo design experience, vector design and preparation
Strong rationale for and adherence to UI/UX principles
Experience refactoring existing UI designs to keep consistency, while refreshing the visual appeal
Experience with JS/front end development
Experience with JS frameworks like AngularJS and/or React a major plus
