What you’ll be doing
As a Graduate UX Designer at Nomensa, you’ll be doing a wide variety of visual and interaction design projects for a plethora of well known clients. You will be working on global brands and well known organisations across a variety of sectors. It could be that you are sketching, prototyping and designing in sprints for a large retail B2C client in one project, and using insights from user research to problem solve for not-for-profit digital services the next. You might even be part of a team jumping on a plane for international projects.
As an agency, we pride ourselves on creating inclusive, human-centric solutions. Working as part of our team of 15 UX designers you have so many talented people around you. The ‘power of two’ is our studio mantra– we will always solve our clients’ problems with a minimum of two people working collaboratively, so you’ll usually be paired with a UX consultant, who specialises in user research, or work with a more senior designer who can help mentor you.
What we’re looking for
Surrounded by so many exquisite creative types at Nomensa, it almost goes without saying, you’ll need to be a creative individual with an unquenchable passion for good design. Everyone in our design team is regarded as someone who brings their own individual edge, so you might have extra strings to your bow, like illustration, photography, or even film making! For example, several designers here regularly wow our clients with their illustrations, working them into the digital designs they weave, so this is a nice skill to have.
As this is a graduate role, we’re looking for graduates who’ve completed further education in graphic design, interaction design, user experience, service design, experience design, digital media design or an associated degree. You may have even done a relevant industry placement year.
Aside from a fantastic portfolio, we are looking for someone who is fanatical about digital, and designing beautiful user interfaces. User centred design know-how is important, but an engaging and inclusive communication style is also vital for this role as you will be required to present to internal and client audiences, support in client workshops and work collaboratively with stakeholders and client teams. You will also have some working knowledge of some of the following design tools; Adobe CC including; Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and XD CC, Sketch, Proto.io, InVision
