Senior Visual / UI Designer

Job description

We are looking for a Digital Visual Designer who has a passion for making the world a more beautiful and meaningful place, through stunning and intuitive products. You have a deep understanding of graphic design, and apply your skills across visual design, user experience, user interface design, branding and prototyping. You have a deep understanding of graphic design, and apply your skills across visual design, digital concept development, user experience, cross platform user interface design, branding and prototyping. With your work you strive to elevate the marriage between visual and functional design to higher levels. You clearly articulate your design choices and reasons based on the reality of each project: from user needs, to context of use and business goals. 

 

About us 

We at Above are devoted to creating value in people’s everyday lives. We are experts in breaking down boundaries between the physical and the digital with the fusion of hardware and software through products and services. We work with the full stack: from strategic concepting all the way through to manufacturing.

 

One of our core philosophies is that we believe in prototyping early and often by bringing designers and engineers together from the very start of a project. If our designers can understand and make technology decisions, while our engineers can grasp and influence the user experience, then we can truly find meaningful collaboration that results in actual relevant products.

 

We work with amazing international brands, local Scandinavian heroes and a fantastic collection of startups. We also have a passion for creating our own products and have a good track record of successful start-up ventures. We’re a team of warm, welcoming, dedicated professionals that love to build cool stuff. In everything we do, we strive for a world class result and we believe you share that mindset.

 

About our creative culture

Our culture heavily relies on creative teamwork where everyone is an important decision maker. You will be able to influence ideas, platforms and upcoming briefs as part of a multidisciplinary team. Observing, reflecting and making is the approach that the team uses to overcome our everyday challenges together.

About the position

  • Design simple and beautiful digital experiences at the intersection of digital, physical, design and technology

  • Develop and present design processes, concepts and solutions
  • Clear articulation of design decisions to team and client
  • Support the wider team in pitches
  • Develop and maintain scalable design systems and guidelines across multiple platforms
  • Work closely together with our developers to prototype and iterate often
  • Work with motion design both within interface design and video animation

What we are looking for

Your passion about beautiful and intuitive design is your most important quality. You are a team player and act as the main creative force in our projects. You inspire your colleagues and clients with great ideas and excellent craftsmanship. You are someone who can oversee the overall design process and assure the quality of the work. You are humble enough to take directions, while brave enough to give candid feedback.  

 

  • 4+ years of professional experience as a Visual Digital Designer, preferably at a digital design agency.
  • Experience creating exceptional digital experiences.
  • The ability to formulate and produce strong visual concepts based on strategic insights.
  • Experience with handling clients through concept to production.
