Our client is a large financial institution and they are seeking a Freelance UX/UI Designer to join their team.

Who We’re Looking For
This role requires a designer with an extremely high bar for visual styles and interaction with skills that lean heavily to the creative side of user experience. We are looking for a designer who obsesses over every font size, every hex value, the ideal line-heights, the perfect amount of padding, and experiences that have premium interactions. Having versatility and previous experience in traditional UX, research, testing, and digital strategy is a bonus, however it is not the core focus of this particular role.
You must submit a portfolio that showcases your visual style and your work history in web, campaign, and app design in order to be considered. This is a hands-on UI/Product Design position, and the right candidate must be able to create beautiful final designs that are ready to move into development.

Day-to-Day Responsibilities
You will be spending your days creating designs and layouts, building prototypes in Invision, scouring the web to assess trends, and meeting with teammates and partners to share work and brainstorm. You will be responsible for projects throughout all stages of the design cycle. This includes concepting and ideation as projects are kicking-off, sketching and wireframing, creating low-to-hi fidelity prototypes, designing interactions/movement, and ultimately, designing the final UI. This role is ideal for a designer with a deep understanding of digital best-practices, responsive design, and an unquestionably keen eye.

• 5-10 years of experience working exclusively in digital in a marketing department, an agency, or a media company.
• Collaborative and comfortable working with a group of partners, product owners and developers.
• Independent self-motivated thinker who can solve complex business problems via visual solutions.
• Advanced software knowledge with Sketch, InVision, Adobe Suite, Principle, and/or other comparable applications.
• A strong portfolio that showcases advanced skills in web and app design.
• Strong UX background with user centric problem-solving approach.
• Great organizational skills, work ethic and superior attention to detail.
• Knowledge of front-end development (HTML/CSS), how it impacts design, and the skills to provide actionable feedback to Development teams.
• Experience with motion graphics, movie editing, and/or interaction design.
• Experience as an illustrator is a plus.
