Interactive Designer

Job description

Join the team at Threespot and help use the power of design and ideas to help inform people, encourage action, and propel society forward.

Interactive Designers at Threespot wed creative vision and aesthetics to strategic solutions. They’re involved at the very outset of the process, actively shaping the look and feel of digital experiences to elevate a brand’s online presence and evolve relationships with their audiences. Our designers are here to push themselves and others to provide our clients with new ideas and effective digital experiences. They make typography, color, line, shape and pattern work together in concert and can work with photography and illustration with ease. They understand that brand and visual storytelling are essential to creating beautiful designs.

Since 1999, Threespot has been building digital solutions for clients. Somewhere along the way, we discovered that we value making a difference as much as we like making things. Since then, we’ve dedicated our time and talent to help those, and only those, who are committed to helping others.

If you want to work for clients who are making a difference, and not just a profit, we should talk.
