What is an Odopod Senior Interaction Designer?
First, a Designer
Senior Interaction Designers at Odopod are foremost, Designers. They are problem solvers, analyzers, synthesizers, creators and communicators. Sure, they are a logical bunch, but our Interaction Designers don’t stop at conceiving systems. They hail from a broad range of design disciplines, such as industrial design and visual design. They’ve taken to heart the attention to detail required for those disciplines and apply that to everything they do. They craft documents that not only specify, but clearly express the distilled essence of their designs.
Empathy-driven Innovator
Our Senior Interaction Designers are empathetic souls compelled to understand client and user needs and goals. They can’t help but see the details and nuances. They imagine users engaging with each interface. They experience each swipe and click as users would. They are driven to make interfaces and experiences that are easier, more satisfying and more useful.
Relentless Simplifier
Our Senior Interaction Designers are always on the lookout for elegant, but nuanced solutions. They spurn rigid, prescriptive and over-simplistic approaches and love beautiful patterns distilled from relevant and resonant solutions.
Budding Leader
Senior Interaction Designers lead others to create great work. They are in tune with the needs of the project from an interaction & UX perspective and guide others to focus on beautiful, functional design.
