Our client, an agency in Richmond, VA, is looking for a talented designer who has the skill not only to create high quality graphics, but the ability to apply their creations to a user-centered design. A strong graphic designer portfolio is a good start, but we’re looking for more than just GD experience. Excellent html and css knowledge, and the ability to position and control UI elements are necessary, along with an understanding of how to construct designs flexible enough to display across multiple browsers, screen sizes, platforms and devices. But most importantly, we are looking for a designer that will be able to understand how the users will want to instinctively interact with the UI, and provide them with the ability to perform their tasks intuitively.
