Digital Visual Designer - Web

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 solutions. 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.

As a brand steward, your duty will be to ensure the logos, icons, illustrations, and other graphics 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 web design application.

We’re a digital company— extensive experience designing for the web, mobile, or any other software applications is a must.

Other responsibilities include performing in-depth user research, developing information architecture, and regularly communicating with clients to ensure their expectations are exceeded.
