We offer deep expertise across the entire customer journey, including communications, commerce, consultancy, CRM, CX, data, production, and technology.

Who we are looking for:

Wunderman Thompson, Midwest is seeking a freelance Senior Visual Experience Designer to be responsible creating world-class experience design for a portfolio of clients. You are a highly-proficient visual designer and expert in user-centered design. You’re someone who can synthesize and translate abstract and complex concepts into simple and thoughtful design solutions that solve business problems and deliver inspiring experiences.

You’re someone who thrives at the intersection of data, technology and creativity and have a thoughtfulness in how you develop the delicate balance between form and function in your designs. You’re a visual designer at your core, but have a deep understanding of UX, a strong strategic point-of-view about both the art and science behind your work. You have a unique ability to translate visions into reality, inspiring those around you. You’re an empathetic champion of the customer, with an insatiable curiosity for their motivations, actions, and how you can forge a connection between them and the brand. You believe that the best products are created in collaboration with both clients and internal teams to envision and iterate design concepts, and deliver world-class experience design solutions. You have an ability to look at a problem, deconstruct it, and devise a way to make it better through design. You’re a restless futurist and innovator, inspired by brands and emerging technologies, while remaining keenly focused on the practical needs of today’s brands.  

What you’ll do: 

  • Visual Design | You’ll work iteratively through the entire visual design process from strategy to implementation, producing and helping guide the creation of detailed client-facing design deliverables. Your focus will be on the visual design system and story with minor supervision. Informed by research and optimized via testing, you’re able to create inspiring experiences across a range of design deliverables such as experience boards, design systems, digital pattern libraries, motion examples, and prototypes.
  • Collaborate | You’ll work closely and iteratively with both clients and internal, multi-disciplinary teams which may include Strategists, Content Strategists, UX Designers, Copywriters, Project Managers and Technologists, serving as the design spark that helps the team conceptualize what’s possible through compelling solutions.

To be considered for this role, you must submit an online portfolio or PDF of your work.

Who you are:

  • Systematic Creative Thinker | You’re a thoughtful, elegant problem solver that crafts inspiring visual solutions rooted in a deep understanding and grasp of the technical and analytical side of creativity. You’re a whole-brain designer, innovative with an obsession for data, patterns and how disparate parts of a system work together. You’re relentless about improving the way humans experience the digital and physical world.
  • Curious & Detail-Obsessed | You’re passionate about delivering experiences that are more than just answering a client’s problems, and innately curious about human motivations and needs. You enjoy following the solution through all stages of the process so that the integrity, consistency, and fidelity of the experience is delivered with a high-level of craft.
  • Influencer & Communicator | You’re not only amazing at your craft, but you also know how to educate, persuade, and drive projects, inspiring both clients and more junior members of the design team. You have a demonstrated ability to synthesize and present your work to client and internal audiences of all backgrounds. You have excellent written, verbal and interpersonal communications skills required to make the complex feel and sound simple and compelling.

What you’ll need: 

  • 5+ years specializing in visual experience design across digital platforms.
  • Have worked in a progressive, creatively-driven agency environment that has embraced digitally-led thinking and XS/XD principles as part of the core creative process.
  • Expertise in the formal elements of visual design, including typography, color, layout, balance, proportion, rhythm, emphasis, and unity.
  • Proficiency in using Sketch/Adobe XD, Photoshop, and InVision.
  • Ability to create conceptual prototypes that convey motion and behavior.
  • Strong conceptual thinking in both visual and interaction design, as well as a solid understanding of designing intuitive functionality, interactions, and usability principles.
  • An understanding of front-end development, including HTML, CSS, iOS, and other technologies.
  • Familiarity and experience working with WCAG 2.1 A/AA standards.
  • Proven track record executing visual design tasks for complex website builds involving redesigns, site consolidations, and brand integrations.
  • Experience working across multiple parallel work streams and within an agile environment.
  • A diverse portfolio of work that showcases your user-centered design experience, including a demonstration of your conceptual thinking, your unique design aesthetic, as well as your strategic and technical skillset.
