We have big and exciting plans for the site and we need a designer to help us bring them to life. This will be your chance to work with 3D models, video, audio, PlayStation integration and whatever else you can imagine.

We’re looking for someone who loves to create visually stunning, enjoyable experiences, and offer the chance to fully own and drive the creative vision of the site. You know how to create the designs and also translate those designs into HTML/CSS. Your experience across desktop, tablet, mobile or TV devices means all your web projects adapt effortlessly to the devices they’re enjoyed on.

What you’ll be doing

  • Producing visually stunning and accessible designs using the tools of your choice.
  • Using SASS to implement mobile-first, responsive designs.
  • Working with our React project, writing semantic and accessible HTML.
  • Responding to feedback and helping to fix issues, as part of support of me as a live service.
  • Working alongside the server and game development teams, ensuring cohesion between Dreams and the web.

Requirements

  • In-depth knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3.
  • An ability to produce standards-compliant and accessible HTML and CSS.
  • Conscientious about accessibility and user experience.
  • A sharp attention to detail and an eye for pixel-perfect design.
  • Good knowledge of the latest web design trends and technologies.
  • Solid experience producing high quality mobile-first websites, with an online portfolio showcasing this.

Ideally you'll also have the following:

  • Working understanding of BEM methodology for CSS.
  • Knowledge of graphics software such as Sketch or Photoshop.
  • Experience with a modern JavaScript framework.
  • Experience with using Storybook for maintaining component libraries.
  • Experience with working on high traffic websites.
  • Player of video games.

A little bit about you:

The web is a passion for you - its constantly evolving potential as a creative platform excites you and you’ll be in tune with the latest trends in web design.

When working, you’ll happily sketch out design ideas and draw up wireframes for pitching your proposals, before jumping in to your preferred tool of choice to start typing the handwritten HTML and SASS/CSS you love to write. Your high standards and keen eye for detail never miss a trick.

This is a permanent position.
