“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complex simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.” – Charles Mingus
Does that quote resonate with you? It does with us. MTV Digital is looking for a Senior Designer who has a particular passion for interface design.  Do poorly labeled doors handles upset you?

You will be working within the MTV/VH1 Digital design team, but with a focus on MTV. Our projects range from the fun and exploratory (social based campaigns, interactive video experiences, new platforms exploration) to the scalable and core experiences (video consumption, global UI architecture).

  • Collaborate with visual designers, product developers and page developers to derive the most optimal solution
