Description
Are you a creative UX Designer with a strong sense of aesthetics and a desire to innovate?

Do you specialize in designing intuitive, inviting user interfaces for modern browsers and mobile devices?

MojoPages is looking for a talented designer who has the skill to not only create compelling graphics, but the ability to apply their creations to a user-centered design. A strong graphic designer portfolio is a good start, but we’re looking for more than just GD experience. The ability to position and control UI elements is critical, along with an understanding of how to construct designs flexible enough to display across multiple browsers, screen sizes, platforms and devices. But most importantly, we are looking for a designer that will be able to understand how users will instinctively want to interact with the UI and provide them with the ability to perform their tasks intuitively.

You will work on all user-facing elements of the application including layout, modals, navigation, icons, and more.

You will also provide design alternatives, wireframes, mockups, and design specifications.

The perfect candidate will have an online professional portfolio including Web sites and mobile applications.
