We are looking for a Digital Visual Designer who is excited about making the world a more meaningful place through beautiful and intuitive products. You have a solid understanding of graphic design, and apply your skills across visual design, UI, user experience, and prototyping. With your work, you seek to marry visual and functional design and bring it to great levels. You clearly communicate your design choices and reasons based on the reality of each project: from user needs to business needs and context of use.
As a Visual Designer at Above, you will collaborate with an exciting mix of competencies, from industrial designers, and researchers, to mechanical and software engineers. We are looking for someone excited about delivering best-in-class solutions in a variety of projects: from digital products to physical experiences.

2+ years of professional experience as a Digital Visual Designer in a varied range of projects, e.g. at a digital design agency.

You have experience working collaboratively with front-end developers.
