"Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the battles of those two awful eternities, yesterday and tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives us mad. It is the remorse or bitterness for something that happened yesterday or the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore do our best to live but one day at a time."
Richard Walker - Twenty-Four Hours A Day
My studio, Bonito, are after a digital designer with a good portfolio of work and experience in web and mobile design.
The following text is taken from our jobs page. FYI, no remote working :)
About the role
Bonito is a growing digital agency with a nimble team of designers and developers. We are carving out our niche with e-commerce and third sector clients, ranging from national charities to smaller local businesses. Based in the centre of Birmingham, we aim to help people understand and communicate through various digital channels.
We are looking for a digital designer with at least 2 years professional experience to join our team and help drive the company into the next stage of growth. You must be a pro active individual who is committed, hard working but have a social edge and enjoys life. You’ll be a team player who clearly communicates their ideas to the team effectively and able to take criticism in order to make the project better.
This is a digital design role, encompassing web sites, web applications and mobile design. You will understand user experience and how simple changes can affect conversion rates and improve a users journey through a website. A good understanding of responsive design is key; realising that it isn’t 3 PSD’s of different sizes but a whole experience.
You will play a key role in designing websites and applications for our clients. This will involve understanding a brief and communicating this back to clients visually. We will expect you to be able to put together wireframes and turn these into polished final designs, working towards executing all design deliverables unaided.
As part of the design team, you will be involved in the initial conversations with our clients to understand their business goals. You will use your keen design eye to interpret a clients brand online, delivering the correct file structures to our front-end team when needed. You will be able to justify your design decisions with clients and team members.
