Job Description:

We’re looking for a Digital Visual Designer with strong creative and conceptual design sensibilities. You'll be involved in the visual aspect of web page and mobile design, design of icons and graphics, and production of multiple web and mobile properties. In this position you will apply a highly engaging and creative visual treatment to digital assets across a broad spectrum of digital properties and for a wide variety of user types. You will work closely with information and experience architects, developers, product managers and other team members as you build a best-of-class user experience.

This is also an opportunity to do some groundbreaking work as we apply Responsive Design so all of our web properties are optimized across multiple form factors (web, mobile, tablet, etc.). As this is a relatively new discipline, we require someone with not only terrific core creative and technical skills, but also with the ability to learn quickly, adapt fluidly, and work closely with developers to inform design comps and conduct ongoing reviews to ensure that Responsive Design is properly being accounted for in the digital products we’re developing.

• Create visual design concepts and compositions for digital experiences across multiple form factors (web, mobile, tablet, etc.).

• Maintain the integrity of brand and design standards throughout all digital properties

• Work with your User Experience team colleagues to support Humana’s digital efforts by collaborating on new designs and design strategies, execute designs within current global UI / design pattern standards, and perform needed design maintenance on existing Humana digital properties

• Provide UI / design pattern guidance, ensure that all digital properties follow Humana’s global standards, and deliver needed concepts, assets, reviews and evaluations to development teams within and outside of Humana

• Document visual design specifications and styles

• Work with our team of front end developers to ensure that your vision becomes a reality and adjust work to fit technical requirements and limitations

Key Competencies and Role Essentials

• 5+ years web design experience

• Bachelor’s degree in graphic design, web design, digital media, or relevant experience

• Portfolio of previous work

• Strong conceptual thinking, typography and visual design skills

• Solid understanding of interface design and IA/UX/interaction design; strong interaction design skills is a plus

• Understanding of HTML5 and CSS from a design perspective

• Knowledge of current web design standards & best practices

• A true understanding of UX principles and an advocate for User-Centered design

• Experience designing for consumer-facing websites

• Demonstrated ability to develop big ideas, and execute accurately against them in a highly collaborative environment

• Intimate knowledge of Adobe CS applications

• Proficient with: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Microsoft Office

Role Desirables

• Previous work experience in an agile environment process a plus

• Some knowledge of responsive and mobile design is a plus

• Optimizing designs for usability and browser compatibility

• Ability to multi-task is of major importance

• Experience designing engaging interactive experiences across multiple platforms (web, mobile, tablets, etc.)
