Capsule | Freelance UX Designer
We’re seeking a freelance UX designer that will apply Capsule’s proven design process to the digital frontier. This designer is not only an expert in sitemaps, wireframes, UX and UI, but is capable of guiding web design projects from start to finish. This individual has an eye for aesthetics and references best practices and current trends in visual design. This intrepid explorer must understand how to use creative problem solving, design and elevated common sense to produce layouts, assets and tools that are intuitively understood, while demonstrating an ability to steer digital travelers through the worlds they create through the use of effective human-centered design.
Ideal candidates are creative thinkers with a firm footing in reality, able to produce strategic and contextual design solutions. Excellent presentation, interpersonal, organizational and project management skills are a must. And, experience in logo, print and packaging design are an added advantage. As a freelancer collaborating with the Capsule crew, this person will work on an hourly or per project basis.
BA in Graphic/Web Design or similar field
4+ years professional digital and print experience and experience working with developers
Extensive knowledge of Adobe Creative Cloud products and working knowledge of web design software such as Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD, etc.
Basic knowledge of CSS and HTML (knowledge of ADA Web Accessibility also a huge plus)
Ability to display leadership capabilities implementing web design projects from start to finish
Up to date on current best web practices and design trends
Capsule has refused to adopt a descriptor since 1999. We’ve worked indoors and outdoors. We’ve strategized for billion dollar industries and nonprofits. Conducted research for brands both big and small. We’ve given new faces to startups and facelifts to businesses over a century old. We’ve named everything from apples to office chairs. Rebranded schools and orchestras. Crafted experiences for grocery stores and Super Bowls. Our refusal to limit our work to one specific industry, combined with the satisfaction we find from poking problems that others won’t touch with ten foot poles, has earned us quite the rolodex of partners over the last 20 years. So if you asked us to describe Capsule in a word, we guess our word would be “We can’t.”
Clients we’ve grown with include Patagonia, Thrivent Financial, Mattel, Minnesota Orchestra, Medtronic, Cargill, Gerber, Hydro Flask, Red Wing Shoes, The Honest Company, Yakima, Herman Miller, Caribou Coffee, Pepsi and SmartWool.
Begins as soon as possible. This is a project-by-project position, weekly expectations will vary. Looking for a freelancer with flexible time allocation.
