Second Story Experience Designers pay close attention to audience needs and wants and work with all other specialists to ensure that every project ultimately takes a human-centered approach. They realize that design elements across multiple mediums must come together to choreograph not only the audience’s physical journey but their emotional journey as well. Since this involves both digital and physical artifacts, Experience Designers are skilled at working within both the digital and physical worlds.

            - Create and execute testing protocols to evaluate the prototype

            - Document and help implement iterations to the design based on learnings

  • Work collaboratively with the entire project team for the duration of the project 

 

THE CANDIDATE MUST

  • Be a keen observer who is able to intuitively anticipate human needs and wants
  • Be a critical thinker who enjoys solving complex problems
  • Be passionate about design, technology, and art 
  • Be an effective storyteller and communicator
  • Embrace experimentation and approach design in an iterative manner, refining through various levels of fidelity
  • Thrive in an interdisciplinary environment and be invigorated by collaborating with a diverse team
  • Be informed about design trends, but intrinsically motivated by the adventure of breaking boundaries to create something new and different
  • Be passionate about detail, quality, and the pursuit of artistic excellence, demonstrating true artisanship
  • Be authentic and honest with a unique worldview

 

SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

  • Strong knowledge of the design process in order to deliver complex projects
  • Ability to clearly articulate ideas (sketch, verbal, and written)
  • Fluency in diverse interactive formats ranging from mobile and web applications to immersive interactive surfaces and environments
  • Ability to create interfaces that engage individuals as well as groups in both physical and virtual spaces
  • Familiarity with tools that allow for multiple fidelities of prototyping (Illustrator, SketchUp, After Effects, etc.)
  • Adequate knowledge of physical materials and their properties
  • Professional degree and 2+ years experience in the areas of User Experience, Interaction Design, or Industrial Design
