London Design Job
UI & UX
Finding excellent designers can be time consuming and costly, and trying to find a new job can be a frustrating experience for designers looking for work. London Design Jobb was conceived to make both sides of the equation easier, helping companies in their search for top talent, and allowing designers to discover and apply for great job opportunities.
In order to establish London Design Job as the go-to resourcing solution for design work, the brand required an aesthetic defined by carefully considered design choices, and a personality defined by good taste and a discerning eye was established for the brand. London Design Job has its finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the design industry, and the website design has to reflect that.
For a brand building a reputation on both style and substance, the user journey was as important as the look, and through numerous workshops several flows were established, acknowledging the immediate needs of companies and job-seekers, and ensuring navigation through the website would be as efficient as possible.
A robust filter system was developed, allowing users to quickly identify their requirements for a job and be presented with only the most appropriate listings. In conjunction with this, the ability to boost adverts with a premium listing gives companies the ability to climb the list and receive more attention than their competitors.
Neurial Grotesk, a family of sans serif fonts designed in the neo-grotesk style was selected for its balanced, flexible offering and the twentieth-century modernism that’s synonymous with current design trends. As user-generated imagery would be a key aspect of job listings posted on London Design Job, a neutral colour palette consisting of off-whites, greys and blacks was established, establishing subtle contrast between tiles whilst giving the spotlight to any company’s individual visual language.
