Visual Designer

Remote Work

We are a remote company with folks across the United States. We don’t care where you live, so long as you’re happy and professional. We’ve had a remote culture for five years, so this isn’t a new thing for our team. If it’s new for you that’s totally fine. We offer a quarterly home office stipend to help you create your best working environment. All we ask for is that you’re all in on LGND and committed to using your experience to create premium designs and being a fun and enjoyable teammate.

The Position

You’re a creative who specializes in simple and intuitive web experiences while maintaining an extremely high standard. You love the challenge of thinking through complex problems. Most importantly, you are always hungry for feedback that grows and improves your work. Your work is your baby, but you’re not overly emotional about new ideas or radical changes. You just want to create the best end product for the client and are excited to iterate with smart people.

  1. Interactive Design: We design full websites ranging from single-page experiences to thousands of pages. Moodboards, wireframes, and high-fidelity mockups created in Figma are all within your comfort zone.
  2. Editorial Design: We specialize in digital stories—think New York Times explainer articles. Taking written content and data and transforming using photos, videos, and data visualizations to storytell with an emotional and rational balance
  3. Branding: We work on all facets of brand and branding. Through a series of meetings you develop an understanding of a client brand’s personality, then working through our brand book process
  4. Design Generalist: You’re comfortable with ideas that are outside of your core competency because you love a challenge. You have a basic understanding of print design. Nothing creative is off-limits for you.
