User Experience

Mid-weight UX Designer

Independent marketing agency

An opportunity for a UX Designer at mid-weight level or ready to step up from junior-level. Working alongside a UX Director and Associate UX Director within a small, independent agency.

The client

An independent, small-sized creative studio within marketing and advertising, regarded for their high-craft, deeply considered and varied work for some of the world’s leading brands.

You’d be joining a growing UX team whilst supporting and learning from a UX Director and Associate UX Director.

The entire studio – UX department included – is highly multidisciplinary, and whilst all roles come with a degree of creative latitude allowing everyone to flex their skillset and work on a variety of projects, for this role they’re looking for a particular breed of UX that values and develops experiences beyond the functional journey. How things look, what we say, the way we say it, how anything we create resonates culturally and lands with strategic purpose. These topics and more will be incredibly important to any Experience Designer that represents the studio, and sweats the details and reasoning behind everything you, they, and the brands they represent do.

You would work within a fast-paced, high output creative environment with an amazing team and a high level of craft and creative expectation. They push boundaries, challenge briefs and work with amazing teams to create beautiful work that they’re hugely passionate about.

The role

You’ll work on a broad range of briefs from integrated campaigns that span Global cultural moments, to digital products within the ecommerce space, and conceptual innovation work that moves the needle on how technologies are perceived and actually used by communities, rather than ad-land awards reels. As such, you’ll be able to demonstrate experience across a variety of projects to evidence your analytical as well as highly creative thinking to solve human-centred problems.

As well as bringing a depth of thinking to the role, you’ll be a strong storyteller with a proficient writing ability. You’ll be expected to take (often fragmented) inputs from clients, planning and creative teams, and understand the importance of both functional and emotional storytelling and the role it plays at various points in the user journey from awareness through to conversion.

The candidate

Key experience they require include;

  • Minimum 2 years focused UX design experience, designing digital products for web and app, and especially experience designing and implementing integrated campaigns
  • Experience working at a mid-weight level in a similar creatively-focused environment
  • Experience in side-by-side collaboration with multi-disciplinary teams, such as designers, creatives, copywriters, editors and project managers
  • A portfolio demonstrating thoughtful problem-solving skills. A mix of campaigns and product experience will also be important.
  • Be familiar with various research techniques and know when and how to apply them.
  • Able to create coherent user journeys that focus on the needs of the consumer and maximise opportunity for the brand.
  • Able to create crystal clear wireframes and functional specifications that communicate impeccable UI solutions, as well as carefully considered content hierarchies and narratives both in page and across the user journey.
  • Able to create low or high-fidelity prototypes to communicate interactions or to aid sell-in of new ideas and concepts.
