More about the Mad-Skillz Designer that is you:
 
·       
As a
designer, you’re happiest when you’re pushing the envelope. While you’re
entrepreneurial and hands-on, your best work comes from a place of
collaboration and teamwork, which is perfect for this Agile environment.
·       
You have outstanding visual design skills with a strong
sense of graphic design, layout, color, and typography with a deep appreciation
for simple, sleek, and usable designs.
·       
You
have a solid understanding of core User Experience Design principles as they
relate to your craft
·       
You have an appreciation for using analytics and user
research data to help inform and guide design decisions
·       
You can clearly articulate how and why effective designs
help achieve business goals.
·       
You
have experience working on high-traffic, deep-content sites that are CMS driven
·       
You most
likely have experience designing for full-scale visual web redesigns as well as
highly iterative aesthetic evolutions (over time) of sites (or maybe you don’t,
but you really want to have this experience!)
·       
You
are an expert at the design tools in your toolbox (e.g Photoshop, etc.)
·       
You
understand the technologies used to create great web experiences (e.g. CSS,
Flash, Javascript) enough that your designs account for their inherent
strengths and limitations.
·       
You
have an understanding of design patterns and visual design hierarchies/systems
and their importance to the successful design of large-scale sites
·       
You
play nice with others and recognize that the best results come from
collaborative communication throughout your process.
·       
You
enjoy helping to grow the design skills of other, more junior, designers but
also realize that you still have a lot to learn (mentoring is a two-way street
and you enjoy driving on it).
·       
You
prefer Agile Development to Waterfall any day of the week
·       
Even
if you don’t call yourself a gamer you have a love of games, especially online
strategy games.
