The Position
Hambly & Woolley (H&W) is in search of a talented digital designer who has a passion for creative and conceptual solutions, a solid understanding of strategy and a passion for creating experiences that connect on a human and emotional level.

 

You’ll work on a variety of projects in the private and public sector – from retail to institutional – including the creation of digital properties at various scales for platforms such as Wordpress, through to more complex proprietary Content Management Systems. You will be involved in every phase of web projects including stakeholder meetings, information architecture and wireframe development, concept through to final design, asset production for developers, and content population. You’ll work closely with our development partners, other members of the design team, and have the opportunity to learn from terrific mentors. You will also interact directly with clients, and be part of client-facing meetings and presentations.

 

You’re great at expressing your ideas and you welcome feedback and collaboration as a natural part of the creative process. You have a portfolio that demonstrates creative problem solving and excellent design execution. While resumés and portfolios are important, we want to know what makes you a great fit for our team — a team who works hard and is always striving to do its best. Hambly & Woolley Inc. offers a working environment that promotes teamwork, tolerance, and creativity.
