With your flexible design approach, you will work across a broad range of design applications, such as websites, digital efficiency tools, immersive exhibition displays, virtual reality apps and e-learning courses. This will involve applying designs to different development frameworks, creating wireframes, storyboards, user flows, process flows, and site maps to effectively communicate interaction and design ideas.

Your passion and commitment will ensure the work you produce is intelligent, useable and intuitive, and to a high standard.

Using a high degree of technical judgement, you will enjoy resolving design challenges and collaborate with your colleagues and clients to define and implement innovative solutions for the product direction, visuals and experience. You will also help facilitate client workshops in order to gather requirements and evolve your designs, and work closely with Project Managers and Developers throughout the project lifecycle to deliver high quality work on time.
