Senior Visual (UI) Designer

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.

As a Visual Designer at Viget you’ll help our clients concept, design, and launch complex digital experiences and compelling websites. Your work will include all aspects of the design process including discovery, strategy development, UI design, interaction design, and client management. Our visual designers work alongside industry-leading brand strategists, UX strategists, project managers, and developers. In between projects, we share our opinions and write about our methods.

Our Senior Visual Designers:

  • Are creative problem solvers and visual storytellers.

  • Are trained in the principles of graphic design and have a good foundation of typography, illustration, photography, and iconography to create effective forms of digital communication.

  • Have a solid understanding of web design best practices and are skilled in UI design, interaction design, and art direction.

  • Understand atomic design principles and can create scalable, flexible visual design systems and UI parts kits that are full of personality.

  • Understand that motion is an essential part of interactive design, and ensure that it’s considered.

  • Incorporate inclusive design principles and accessibility best practices in their work.

  • Designing high fidelity design comps to present to stakeholders.
