Senior Designer // Visual Systems

At Grand Studio, there is no divide between contractors and full-timers. We’re in this together, so our contractors get all the support, opportunities and team perks that our full-timers do. We are currently searching for a senior contractor in Visual Systems to join our teams to explore digital products and services in a consulting environment.

Is Visual Systems your cup of tea?

  • You are all about reinvigorating a brand and bringing a fresh, creative perspective
  • Your brain is wired to navigate and communicate the aesthetics: colors, typography, grid systems, and iconography
  • You are meticulous about rulesets for design systems, minimal yet impactful
  • You understand the foundations of visual design, but you also know when to embrace a different approach if needed
  • You welcome variety as a designer, continuing to improve your strengths while contributing to other disciplines within a design process

Our expectations for an applicant

  • Professional creative experience in a consulting or in-house environment
  • A rich understanding of the end-to-end design process and evidence of using appropriate methods to inform a visual design system
  • A portfolio of case studies that shows a mastery designing for a diverse set of digital products or services grounded in user, business, and technical insights
  • Comfort in crafting new visual language or extending an existing design system
  • Experienced in communicating with technology teams and other stakeholder groups
  • Comfortable in delivering production-ready specifications for technology
  • Available to work with us on-site is preferred. This may be a remote role or remote flexible if the project allows
