Experienced Freelance UX Designer for Interactive Nonprofit & Academia Firm

If you’re a design-minded UX expert who sees user experience as a brand story instead of process-flows and human-computer interaction, then we’d love to hear from you. And if you care about things like climate change, poverty, education, and healthcare, then we’ve got some projects to work on that you’ll probably find meaningful and rewarding.

MSDS (www.ms-ds.com) is a boutique branding and interactive agency that specializes in high-end user experiences for nonprofits, universities and education. Since 2000, we’ve dedicated ourselves to advancing the missions of cause-driven organizations who make the world a better place. We’ve a highly collaborative studio that emphasizes teamwork, strategic and creative thinking, and a commitment to creating superior work that helps move the world in a better direction.

We’re looking for a creative thinker who knows how to tell a brand’s story through content-centric wireframes; who knows how to structure a site around things like nonprofit missions, issue areas, programs, research and impact stories. Ideally you’re someone who worked as a designer and then decided you liked the UX side more. You’ve got to know how to interpret a brand’s goals and strategy, have a feel for content and visual design and then be able to combine them into a high-impact user experience.

  • B.A. or higher in related field
  • Superior grasp of information architecture concepts and methods
