Posted: June 1, 2021

Exciting new opportunity for a Web/UI Designer to fill a great role as Senior Designer/Art Director/Team Lead (visual) with a passion for delivering ecommerce digital solutions, to join our agency client located in the heart of Ottawa.  We are looking for a designer with a modern and contemporary portfolio, with client brands experience in CPG environments.

Our client is a leader in providing unique and engaging commerce solutions for their clients. Never wanting to be part of the “norm”, this company is known for delivering innovative solutions that push technology limits while elevating their clients’ brands. You might even say they deliver unique creative solutions to convey unique brand experiences!

As a Senior Designer/Art Director/Team Lead, your primary role will be to create high fidelity designs for Shopify sites leveraging digital design best practices, your expertise in typography, branding, and technology, to create great customer experiences. Note this is very much a hands-on role.

Candidates must have a minimum 5-7 years’ experience in branding and design environments (can be print and web), including projects where you were directly involved in creating alluring and engaging web/digital designs as part of a team of designers and developers. This is not a developer role – but speaking their language truly helps! Projects will include both web and mobile applications.

This role will also work with other designers on the team to hone and refine design solutions according to clients’ brands. Part of this role may include streamlining process and procedures as required under the direction of the Design Director. This is a team environment – all pitch in on design critique and feedback. This role will also be responsible for providing a “visual QA” to all projects.

As this will also be a client facing role, candidates must have prior experience presenting concepts to clients with clear and concise communication skills (English only) and be part of discovery calls with current and potential clients as needed.

Required key skills include initiative for learning and growth of new design trends, leveraging technology in new ways, and have a high attention to detail re finished products. Key software includes solid working knowledge of Figma, senior level skills Adobe CC, as well as strong typography skills and branding expertise.  A digital portfolio of current work will be required to be considered for this opportunity.

Although this is a remote opportunity at present due to Covid restrictions, consideration may be given to a candidate who resides in an area outside of Ottawa, but within Canadian borders.
