Our Agency client are looking for a top digital designer, the missing piece in a tight-knit team building one of the hottest upscale boutique brands around.

You'll be expected to develop (and maintain) our visual identity across all things digital, smoothing our rough edges and keeping true to our core values. Our customers are discerning, with devastatingly high attention to detail, so there’s no margin for error. If we want to impress, or even satisfy, we need to carefully caress every pixel.

And on top of your aesthetic eye, artistic sensibility, and ambition you’ve got the wherewithal to rationalise your ideas to your colleagues, including the leadership team.


Responsibilities

• Working with senior management and the creative and tech team (IA/UX, developers, designers/art directors, writers and editor) to evolve and develop a new visual language for onefinestay.com that reflects our brand values and ambitions
• Implementing clear communication and considered design across onefinestay
• Producing gorgeous website and mobile screen designs and mock-ups, rapidly
• Solving complex digital problems and turning them into amazing, pixel-perfect designs
• Creating, updating and following detailed design and brand guidelines for the company
• Contributing to the creative department and company to champion, instigate and implement behaviour that changes ideas and design work

Desired experience and skills

• A good degree in a design or arts related subject, from a respected university
• An understanding of user experience within eCommerce or content-led web sites
• Proven experience and impeccable skills designing fluid web, mobile and app interfaces in Adobe Creative Suite (Primarily Photoshop)
• Able to work to tight deadlines whilst maintaining exceptional quality of creative output
• Turning wireframes and sketches into compelling digital designs is second nature to you
• You're proud of an amazing portfolio of digital design work that spans site design, mobile, apps, display advertising and marketing
• HTML, CSS, Javascript – or at least an understanding of these technologies and their potential/restrictions
• Understanding of gesture-enabled UI and touch screen interfaces
• Experience in designing world-class, innovative experiences for up-scale, image-led brands will be a big advantage


Personal Qualities

• You’re a design geek, plain and simple
• You obsess about great design, layout, typography and photography, and you can articulate your rationale too
• A deep understanding that digital experiences and brands are living, breathing things that need constant love and nurture – not lifeless works on plinths in galleries
• You love working with and defending your ideas to your top tier colleagues
• A forward thinker, both strategically and creatively, who’s plugged in to design, emerging technologies and all things interactive
• Ability to work with direction if needed but also initiate new designs and concepts independently
• Friendly, enthusiastic and passionate with a good sense of humour
