About UnitedUs

UnitedUs are a Brighton-based strategic brand, design, and UX agency that works with clients to unite their people, find their purpose, and realise their potential. Approaching ten years in the game we are multi-award-winning, including Great Place to Work-Certified™.

As well as our brand and marketing projects we work on a broad range of digital projects, from global campaign sites for Aon through to digital product design for LEGO.

People

We are looking for people with a passion for using design as a tool to realise the business and creative ambitions of our clients and the agency. We want people who have a desire to become our in-house expert in user experience and digital design, have an appetite to learn about up and coming technologies and methodologies, and the wits to know when and how to use them. We also want people who have a solid understanding of the age-old design principles. We want people who question the brief, go on their own journeys of exploration to understand it further, and use their skills to deliver above and beyond our clients’ expectations.

Purpose

The digital designer acts as the conduit between brand design, strategy, and development.
