We’re looking for a Digital Creative Director to join the team. A highly motivated individual with the right kind of experience and understanding when it comes to current design patterns, usability best practices and online technologies. We’d love it if you have a degree or diploma in Visual or Interaction Design, HCI or Information Architecture. Also, we’d expect you know how to put the Adobe Creative Suite to work or similar design and prototyping tools like Sketch, Principle or Framer.
You get fired up when it’s your responsibility to lead in the creation of branded design solutions. We’d be fired up to see that your portfolio contains examples of your understanding of things like colour theory and it’s impact on cohesive design systems, how beautiful typography can influence layouts and that you create clarity for users through intuitive interfaces on both web and mobile devices.
You’ll need to be able to effectively provide rationale and convey design requirements to the rest of our team as well as being comfortable articulating your reasons with clients. If you have any experience writing code, that’d be a real bonus.
This is a full time position based out of our office in Calgary.
