Digital Designer

Job description

Looking for a mid-weight digital designer to join the team to design primarily websites, apps, and digital interfaces. Projects can cover all stages of digital products from beginning to end, including some or all aspects of wireframing, prototyping, branding, full fidelity mockups, video demos and developer handover. 


The role would involve working under the head of design as part of the design team while operating relatively independently, as designers are assigned projects and must work with the product teams to fulfil their briefs and deliver the required work to a high standard. 


**There is a mini brief that must be completed as part of the application for this job, see the Job Requirements for more details.**

Requirements

You must have a good eye for design, be able to work fast under some tight deadlines, a good knowledge base underpinning your design decisions, and have an open attitude to take on new and different kinds of challenges. Good communication skills are essential (verbal and non-verbal) as you will be working with different teams across the company and occasionally clients too and must be able to communicate your ideas clearly, and engage productively with feedback.

 

You must be already familiar with the main Adobe Creative Suite apps (particularly Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign/Xd), Sketch, and with general Microsoft Office skills. Video, motion graphics, and 3D capabilities would be a bonus for us.


Mini brief

As part of applying for this position, we ask that you create and submit a mockup for a dashboard in a loyalty app/website. This is to test your reasoning behind creating the design, as well as your aesthetic abilities. What the brand, platform or loyalty points are for is up to you!

 

An example would be a loyalty app for a coffee shop, where you can collect points for buying coffee. Or a gaming store loyalty service that provides discounts for loyal members. Have fun with it! Don’t forget to use solid reasoning for the choices you make in your design. So if it looks good and works good, that’s what we’re looking for.


About us

Mobile Five was established in 2011 in London and has worked on a range of different digital products and international clients across different industries. Starting with a heavy focus on mobile rich media ads built with HTML5, we have grown since then to also build larger and more complex products, as well as to grow a second team of native developers in Warsaw. Highlights include multiple apps for Renault, Gatwick, and Canon; a redesigned website and new app for Greggs; a revamped website for Glyndebourne; a promotional gaming app for one of Pepsi’s campaigns; and a journey planning and ticketing app for Stagecoach. We also often work with startups to help establish their own brands and digital products, which allow for greater creative freedom.


We are based in central London on Charing Cross Road. The workplace atmosphere is relatively casual while still being respectful. Anyone can talk to anyone here without any strict barriers, so you would be free to learn and communicate with whomever you wanted to. 


From time to time projects can become highly demanding, in which case everyone involved steps up to deliver more and support each other. On the flip side however, there are perks which include monthly roundups that culminate in drinks out or activities, regular department outings, plus breakfast and snacks are provided too. There’s also the summer and Christmas parties which are a blast, where the Warsaw and London teams come together for fun times.
