Junior UI Designer

We’re looking for a Junior UI Designer who wants an amazing opportunity to work within a highly talented creative team on a leading global tech brand. You will be involved from the very start of projects through to development handoff.

You’ll collaborate with strategists, writers, animators, developers, producers, and clients to help the team deliver immersive web experiences, build and maintain design systems, and everything in between.

While we operate at a global level, we maintain a start-up culture within an environment that is social, fun, and engaging, in a warehouse-style office space that is full of natural light.

Being a people first culture, we offer flexibility, growth planning, and training along with an amazing well-being program of work, summer days off, and loads of learning opportunities and benefits.

We encourage an entrepreneurial mindset where we drive innovation and continuous improvement, and we always show tremendous pride in our work.

This is a permanent role.

Allow us to introduce ourselves

We’re Apparent, a full-service, independent agency made up of 140 thinkers, creators and solution-makers doing what we do best. One thing you should know about us: we’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit, and we know the work worth doing doesn’t fit into neat, tidy boxes. And neither should you, for that matter. 

Our warehouse space in Redfern is here for you to gather, make stuff you’re proud of and grow your strengths (even if they have nothing to do with your job description).

We punch well above our weight, with some of the biggest clients in the world on our roster, from tech giants like Google and IBM, to local icons like Tourism Australia and Cricket Australia. 

Our approach? We call it the red thread. In other words, it’s the thing that connects everything we do, from the customer, through to the client and brand. On any given day you can expect to cross paths with someone in strategy, brand, creative, content production, social media, UX/UI, technology and media planning and buying. Oh and dogs, too. You’ll definitely cross paths with adorable dogs.

A few things you’ll like about working here:

  • A flexible and hybrid working policy
  • Generous parental leave and summer days off
  • Heaps of growth and training opportunities
  • 24/7 access to our employee assistance program for you and your family

The role

  • Work closely with a diverse team of creatives, strategists, producers, fellow designers and developers.
  • With the guidance of a senior team, create high fidelity designs for websites; e-commerce platforms; immersive web experiences and demos; and sites with multiple languages.
  • Deep dive into content, and be able to suggest alternative ways to bucket or showcase complex information.
  • Work with a design system and component library. 
  • Create engaging graphics that showcase tech products. 

Skill set required:

  • Ideally 1-2 years of digital design experience, with relevant tertiary education.
  • Pixel-perfect attention to detail.
  • Ability to present work with an effective, coherent rationale and narrative.
  • Able to create and iterate in short design sprints.
  • Basic knowledge of website design principles and accessibility best practices.
  • Must possess a strong team orientation and excellent interpersonal skills.
  • Be highly communicative and responsive both within the team and also with stakeholders.
  • Experience on a web or product project is a bonus. 
  • A basic understanding of the web development process is a bonus.

Software skills:

  • We use Figma, so basic experience is required (or Adobe XD or Sketch, with the intention to learn Figma). 
  • Basic experience using After Effects, or CSS and HTML is a bonus.
