  • Ability to clearly demonstrate/evidence where you have used a User Centred Design approach to your work.
  • You will have a credible track record of defining elements – layout, design patterns, controls, actions and visual priorities (what needs to be obvious, what needs to be easy, and what needs to be made possible).
  • Recent experience of working from a digital perspective as well as sketching, prototyping and iterative design.
  • Ability to provide examples of Iterated (Agile / Scrum) design solutions based on design hypotheses that came out of researched User needs and understanding the problem space.
