Inspire is on the hunt for a visual designer to create stellar interfaces, seamless experiences and silky smooth interactions. Someone to distill complex ideas into simple user interfaces.

Sound like your wheelhouse?

ABOUT YOU

You sweat the details over a beautiful design without sacrificing the best possible user experience. You know design draws people in — but it should get out of the way so they can glide thru experiences like butter. You love peppering the path from A to B with moments of surprise and delight.

You’re excited to whip up lo-fi wires, hi-fi mockups and prototype on multiple platforms. You keep up on best practices for desktop and mobile. You understand design for iOS vs Android. You don’t shy away from new(er) interfaces like watches, voice, etc.

At the end of the day, you want to design user interfaces that make people weak in the knees. Designs that make other designers jealous. Designs that win awards.
