Web & UX Designer
We are seeking an experienced Web & UX designer to join an established branding & design agency that specializes in food & recipe websites.
You must be an expert in Adobe XD & Figma and consider yourself both a right & left brain thinker; someone who loves the technical aspects of creating component libraries while also having a knack for branding & design. As the UX designer, you will work with the owner/Creative Director to spearhead strategy documents, create wireframes, and handle client revisions.
While this role doesn't require logo & branding design skills, it is an added bonus and would be compensated accordingly for the right candidate. Additionally, you will not be coding/developing mocks, as this will be handled by my developer but you should have experience and interest in collaborating with the developer to make the end product pixel-perfect.
This position is a fully remote, Independent Contractor position with 20-40 hours/week for the right fit. Projects will be paid on an agreed project fee (not hourly). You must be willing to sign IC agreement form, which includes a non-disclosure. For the right fit, there is an opportunity for this to turn into a full-time, salaried role.
Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design, Web Design, or similar. To be considered for this role you must be formally trained in graphic design and have a strong understanding of typography basics as it relates to size, contrast, and readability.
Ideally, you have a minimum of 2 years post-grad experience.
Expert-level skills using Adobe XD and Figma and experience creating component libraries.
Proven experience with accessibility and the WCAG 2.0 Guidelines.
Specific experience creating & maintaining a component library to ultimately decrease the design and development time by creating an organized system of UX elements.
Priority is given to someone who is passionate about and has experience with food & design! Our clients are mainly food bloggers, so having a base understanding of cooking and baking is helpful to better understand their needs.
While working hours are flexible, you will need to be available for weekly meetings and be reachable via Slack between the working hours of 8-5 pm CST.
You Must Also Have A:
High comfort acting as lead designer and taking initiative.
Knack for a modern, upbeat, and colorful design. Many of our clients are women, therefore the design style leans more toward that aesthetic (we don't do much black and white, edgy type design). Be prepared to share samples.
Team focus and be willing to adapt based on feedback and design restrictions that are presented to you.
Collaborative mindset with openness to receive feedback. We are a team and are looking to provide the highest quality to our clients.
Clear demonstration of personal and professional alignment. We are looking for someone that is passionate about web design (both UX & UI) and the idea of translating branding into a beautiful, pixel-perfect website.
Keen eye and detail focus with a commitment to pixel-perfect design and execution
Forward-thinking and problem-solving approach to every project.
