UI Designer 31 May 2019

Emerge (http://emer.ge) is a digital product & service agency focused on helping clients create the best digital products & services, located in the heart of Portland, OR and we’re looking for a incredibly talented & thoughtful UI Designer to join our team.

As our UI Designer, you’ll be working closely with our creative director & UX designers to take user interface design to a new level — leveraging your talents in making smart, seamless, fluid, and visually stunning branded user interfaces by taking user experience artifacts and crafting product experiences that our client’s customers will find simultaneously easy to use and a delight to interact with. You’re no stranger to building out complex design systems and enjoy stitching together the atomic pieces when it’s called upon just as much as you do establishing a conceptual look and feel. You obsess about the details and find great joy in making sure they are accounted for and part of a fully comprehensive style guide for development.
