We have an opportunity for a talented web designer in our Cheltenham office. You will be an experienced digital creative with a good understanding of current and upcoming web design patterns.

You will be part of the briefing process, and be responsible for creating wireframes, design visuals and prototypes with human-centered design thinking as your core focus, and be happy to present your work to the client. You will work alongside developers and senior managers to help with costing your work and be able to break down your activities into a logical process. You will have an understanding of web technologies and how best to tackle issues in web design. You will have a good eye for design, attention to detail and pride in your work. You will also be able to put yourself in the client’s shoes and consider the impact of your design decisions on the project.
