Digital Designer Job In Leeds

We care deeply about customer experiences on all of our digital transformation projects. From how users are first introduced to a new brand, to fulfilling complex tasks. We know visual design has a profound impact on brand perception, task completion, purchasing behaviour and loyalty.

Our approach to UI allows our designers to combine their creative skills with technical know-how to bring brands, graphics, interfaces, animations and other visual effects to life. At Parallax, this requires a mixture of brand, digital, motion and interaction design work across digital devices for clients in a wide array of industries. Digital designers must be adaptable and work to the specific needs of their audience, balancing this with artistic flair and creativity.

Applicants for this role will be judged predominantly on portfolio over CV and there are no qualifications we ask for, other than being a really good designer who cares about designing great experiences and enjoys being part of a fast paced team. You must have a minimum of 2 years experience either from an agency or in-house design role.

Job description

  • Create visual prototypes that turn flat screens into a working design prototype that can be presented to clients.
  • Craft and prepare development ready digital design files.
  • Present designs to internal and client stakeholders, clearly explaining the recommended approaches and decisions made.
  • Work closely with developers to bring projects to life, and with project managers to work through iterations for clients in a timely and efficient manner.
