Lead UI & UX Designer

As a Lead UI & UX designer, you will lead digital workstreams and other teammates to create inspiring visions, UX flows, UI expressions, and expansive thinking across a diverse range of projects while elevating Other Tomorrow’s quality standards, approaches, and methodologies.

You’ll collaborate with teammates to propel projects forward and leverage your superb communication skills to rally people behind a strategic vision. You consider yourself a details person, yet have an uncanny ability to simultaneously see the big picture, empowering and guiding our team to deliver innovative and strategic designs. You enjoy a new challenge and are comfortable with the ambiguity of not knowing the final outcome (the magic ingredient in what we do).


Your core skill set is based around visual design execution, with a focus on UI/UX. Ideally, you’re a hybrid designer who can stretch into service design or brand strategy when needed. You are able and excited to flex seamlessly between strategic UX thinking, beautiful UI design, and whatever other project challenges come our way. At Other Tomorrows you will be part of a small but passionate team dedicated to growing a culture-first strategic design studio.
