If so, you may have a safe home here, among your odd kind, at projekt202.

Requirements:

  • 2+ years interaction design experience.
  • Concrete understanding of UI design principles, especially as related to the design of interfaces for desktop, web and wireless applications.

  • Strong and fearless IA skills.
  • Ability to analyze clients' usability challenges and strategize solutions to improve their products and their processes.
  • Good awareness of trends in visual design/graphics and ability to design innovative solutions that help our clients stay ahead of the curve.
  • Mastery of design applications such as PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign and Visio.
  • Ability to get around in HTML (please note this is not an HTML-intensive position, but basic-to-intermediate coding skills are required).
  • Knowledge of capabilities and constraints when designing for C++, Java, Web technologies (HTML, DHTML, JavaScript, etc.), plus hardware platform limitations including wireless devices and PCs.
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills, comfort working directly with clients.
  • Ability to work under tight deadlines and on multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Ability to have fun, take a break now and then, hold your own in darts, and find solace in the chaotic.

Our visual designers help give clients The Look. They know what's happening, what's good, and how to spot possibility in UI constraints.

Requirements:

  • Ability to conceptualize and efficiently illustrate multiple design directions based on an understanding of UI design principles, especially as related to software products.
