Futuredraft is looking for a Freelance Visual Designer / Product Designer in Oakland, CA, USA.
Futuredraft is looking for a strong and strategic visual / product designer to create great applications for our fantastic clients. At Futuredraft we distill complexity into great experiences that make complicated data and workflows easy and accessible. Our key clients are in healthcare, financial, logistics, and energy sectors. They love us because we dispense with the usual agency bullshit. We work fast and lean, and give it to them straight, no chaser.
This position is contract with the possibility of full-time hire (and with it the usual benefits — health insurance, 401k, etc.) Remote work is ok by us, but we’d like you close enough to our Oakland office to come hang a few times a week.
Our ideal designer has an analytic mind that loves a challenge. As in, you would consider yourself left brain if you didn’t have this intense passion for design. You’re a master of using layout, typography, and graphics to turn dense piles of data into a beautiful and compelling story. You design tools that not only look good, but are a joy to use. You might have Charley Harper prints on your wall, and a Tufte book tucked under your pillow.
- 5+ years experience required
- APPLICATION / PRODUCT DESIGN EXPERIENCE A MUST. Consumer apps are great, but enterprise is even better (it’s harder to apply lipstick on much bigger pigs)
- Experience in - or at least a deep and abiding respect for - UX processes
- Plus if you have a background in data visualization
- We try to be tool agnostic, but Sketch is preferred
- You operate your tools with the speed and efficiency of an avid gamer
Futuredraft is a highly collaborative studio, both internally and with our clients. Designers should have strong client-facing skills; the ability to present their work clearly and persuasively to different audiences, solicit feedback effectively and make clients happy!
If this sounds like you, please get in touch!
