Full-time Imaginet in Cardiff

We're currently looking to recruit a highly talented Digital Designer. You must have a strong, varied portfolio showing multi-platform design ideally including ecommerce, web and mobile. This role will involve concept, design and execution of all creative projects briefed.

It is essential that applicants are highly skilled in graphic design and user interface design. Experience of designing for mobile is an advantage along with UI/UX skills. A firm understanding of designing with HTML and CSS is also desirable.

If you are a forward thinking Designer, looking for an opportunity to take a leading role in a web agency, then this could be the opportunity for you.
