Viget is a digital agency / software development shop headquartered just outside of Washington, DC, (in Falls Church, VA) with additional offices in Durham, NC, Boulder, CO, and Chattanooga, TN. We've been at it since 1999 and have earned a solid reputation as a rare firm that does both great design and development work when building digital products and marketing platforms.
Our designers work alongside industry-leading copywriters and brand strategists, UX and product designers, project managers, and developers to create visually-rich, complex digital experiences and compelling products. Your work will include project discovery, strategy development, design presentation, visual design, brand development, and motion design. At this time, we're hoping to hire a Designer with 2–5 years experience in digital design.

- Are creative thinkers and visual storytellers.
- Begin work with thoughtful strategy and avoid elementary design solutions.
- Think beyond aesthetics and apply methodical problem solving to design.
- Are strong communicators and have the ability to articulate design decisions to a variety of audiences.
- Are mindful and skilled presenters.

- Understand that motion design is an essential part of interactive design.
- Know how to make connections to create, extend, and enhance brand stories.
- Are considerate of accessibility, usability, and future-friendly web standards.

- Understand that digital design is fluid, flexible, and adaptive to an ever growing variety of screen sizes and dimensions.
- Are comfortable using modern digital design tools and open to learning new ones. We spend most of our time in Figma supplemented by apps in Adobe’s Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, AfterEffects, etc.). Principal and Webflow are also emerging tools for us—experience a plus.
- Are interested in continual learning and sharing knowledge with others.
- Have grit and understand that hard work is simply part of the job.
