We’re hiring… Digital Designer
Full time (37.5 hours per week)
£27,000 – £30,000 DOE
We’re on the hunt for a talented digital designer to join the growing team at Three Straight Lines. Our plan has always been to recruit the best talent, so we’re looking for an idea driven designer that loves to solve problems and create solutions that work brilliantly and have a creative wow factor. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be work on designing award winning websites, amazing apps & digital products that enrich people’s lives drop an email with your portfolio to email@example.com.
What to expect
Based in Bournemouth, we’re a small agency with big ideas. Working on digital products from websites to web apps we aim to help our clients by working with them to develop ideas that solve human problems and find ways to deliver them perfectly—all while trying to make the internet a more enjoyable place for people by creating experiences that are enriching and entertaining.
Working alongside our creative director, you will be focussing on problems and creating solutions that are both highly usable and remarkably creative. We value both UX & creative in equal measure with the ideal candidate having strong skills and experience in both. Knowledgeable in connecting with humans through designing practical and emotional experiences, you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of designing for people rather than simply focusing on technology and interfaces. You’ll be a creative individual full of fresh ideas, but also a team player that can deliver them alongside our talented team. The ability to generate great ideas quickly is essential, as is the ability to articulate your ideas to clients. Our work often involves evolving existing brands and working with startups to develop them into brands, therefore we’re also looking for a designer with an understanding of what makes a great brand.
Web development is not part of the role, we have an crack development team who you will love to work alongside. We’re not looking to turn this position into a joint designer/developer role. We believe people’s skills evolve best when they are provided with focus on a small well defined role rather than becoming a jack-of-all-trades. We respect your professional skills and will give you the opportunity to progress and improve your skills whilst working with us. We’re always looking for candidates with potential and believe in investing in our staff; allowing them to learn, improve and fulfil their potential. We are looking to grow the design team over the course of the year, giving you the opportunity to take a lead role within the team.

- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- Sketch, Adobe XD (or similar)
And ideally skilled in:

A working knowledge of HTML5, CSS3 & jQuery would be give you an advantage, although we’ll never be asking you to write code.
Education & experience
- At least 2 years experience of working in an agency
- A history of dealing with clients directly, or at least the desire and ability to do so

- Central Bournemouth location with regular work outings and parties
