Senior Web Designer

Full Time / Part Time

 

Love type and layout? So do we.

Do you obsess over every small detail of type and layout? Is the tracking right, is the leading correct, should the text be one pixel larger? If yes, you’re not alone, at Imagemakers we’re also a little obsessive with type and layout.

 

No coding necessary

Have no fear, at Imagemakers being a designer means just that. In fact, we separate UI design and front-end programming on purpose. We want our designers creating freely without worrying about how something will be coded. Our front-end developers are here to support your design and make it come to life in a pixel-perfect way.

 

No website templates here

We have ZERO design restrictions, our front-end development team builds everything from scratch without using an existing framework. Whatever you can dream up (want to animate type in a 3D space? Implement an interactive video? etc), the front-end team can build it to meet your vision exactly.

 

Wide range of clients, projects and aesthetics

Our clients are located all over the world and range from professional sports teams to flower exporters in South America to Fortune 500 manufacturers to non-profits. Our design team never tires of using the same ‘ol font and imagery styles due to the diversity of projects and clients.

 

Not just websites

Websites are just a part of the projects our design team gets to work on a day-to-day basis. Our design team works to create UI/UX for the following types of projects:

  • Apps
  • Hotel booking system used by millions
  • Custom cash register systems
  • Large touch screen 3D product configurators
  • Industrial IoT systems
  • Custom eCommerce
  • Financial portals and platforms

 

Want to work remotely? No problem.

We had employees working remotely even before the pandemic forced us to. So if you like working from home while wearing your slippers, we won’t judge :D. We will provide you with all the necessary work environment tools (computer, monitors, standing desk, office supplies, etc.). And when the pandemic is over, if you’re located nearby and you want to come to the office never or five times a week, it’s all good!

 

Responsibilities

  • Creating low-fidelity wireframes
  • Creating high-fidelity mockups (We use Photoshop and Figma, but if you’re into XD, Sketch, Illustrator, or whatever else is out there, that’s fine too)
  • Some knowledge of UX and IA. You enjoy taking something complex and simplifying it.
  • Reviewing your digital solution after the programming phase and ensuring it matches the vision for the project.
  • May be asked to perform other duties as assigned

 

Requirements

  • 1 - 3 years of experience in a web/digital work environment
  • An absolute love of type and layout
  • Able to work at a computer (sitting or standing) for extended periods.
