A Digital Designer is required to work as a key part of our growing Digital team to design effective, high quality cutting-edge digital design and user experiences across a variety of our websites, mobile sites and apps.

You will have bags of creativity and you’ll work well both individually and as part of a team to ensure successful design, development, testing and delivery of the company’s websites and other creative initiatives.

You will be empowered to create great work with freedom to suggest and implement ideas, whilst being flexible and having a can-do approach. You’ll be completely at ease using common toolsets such as Adobe Fireworks, Photoshop, Illustrator, and be highly proficient at writing clean, semantic HTML and CSS. Expert User Interface design skills are a must and additional skills including designing for email, mobile and video are also highly desirable.

Your responsibility will be to gather design requirements and carry them from the idea/concept stage, through wire framing/prototyping into build until completion, which will involve the use of HTML and CSS.

Key skills include but are not limited to:

  • Experience with UI design
  • Exposure to a broad range of software including Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator
  • CSS3 and HTML5 skills
  • Strong portfolio

If you are an enthusiastic designer with Web Design, a strong creative flare and experience of Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Dreamweaver and Photoshop, User Experience, CSS3 and HTML5 skills then we would love to hear from you. Further experience with CMS systems, FTP and domain management, SEO, PHP, WordPress and .net would also be useful.

If you are interested in this position, please send a copy of your CV and a cover letter plus current salary details to the HR Department, 80 Kingsway East, Dundee, DD4 8SL or email: recruitment@dcthomson.co.uk
