Interaction Designer

About Codal

Codal is a UX design and development agency with a focus on blending an Agile process with the latest technologies. Based in the heart of Chicago, we have a knack for bringing out the best in every brand that we work with. Our clientele has ranged from small business to enterprise, but our philosophy has always remained the same: to empower brand visibility and deliver the most elegant web and mobile solutions possible.

Why Work At Codal

A tight-knit group working on a global scale. A start-up culture tackling enterprise products. A driven team that channels their creativity and passion into every project, then brings the same heat to the office’s ping-pong tournament or softball game. Codal is an anomaly of the industry—we do things a little differently around here. 

A long story short? You won’t find a company like Codal anywhere else.  

Duties & Responsibilities 

Codal’s UX team is searching for a supremely creative Interaction Designer for our office in Chicago, IL. As an artist with a strong background in designing for consumer-facing brands, our ideal candidate should be able to design around that brand, and generate a creative vision and clear direction for its digital campaigns. As a brand steward, your duty will be to ensure the logos, icons, graphics, and everything else you create aligns with the style, aesthetic, and mission of our clientele.  

You must possess a mastery of design principles such as typography, illustration, imagery, content, and composition, and excel in wielding them in a brand marketing application. Other responsibilities include performing in-depth user research, developing information architecture, and regularly communicating with clients to ensure their expectations are exceeded. Codal’s designers are ones who cannot contain their passion for crafting digital experiences, and will do everything it takes to ensure their projects are pixel-perfect.

  • You are willing to do what it takes to get the job done, whether it’s coming early or leaving late
  • You can accurately communicate your design decisions, requirements, and ideas both verbally and through documentation package.
  • You are an organization ninja, taking a group of requirements, strategies, and ideas and organizing them into a cohesive, usable structure.
