Visual / UI Designer
We are looking for an exceptional visual designer who is not only creative but also systematic and detail oriented. You enjoy participating in all phases of the creative process, from early ideation to the production of final assets. You are passionate about novel user experiences, but you’re equally motivated about carefully crafted design solutions existing within the confines of design, brand and platform guidelines.
User experience design at Ape is all about creating meaningful and delightful experiences that create value to our users and our clients. We are looking for someone who loves turning complex challenges into great user interface solutions, and have no problems with zooming in on the details and then back out again to understand how it all fits in the larger picture.
Interning at Ape could be a quite unique experience. We accept students from both vocational training (in form of LIA) and universities (in form of master thesis). All interns will have, a mentor, in your area, to help you grow and conquer challenges. Does it sound interesting?
We talk about stuff
Re:Design is a podcast in Swedish about all things design. It’s the only podcast about digital design in Sweden. Nils, Linnéa, Ola and Marcus have recorded and released over 45 episodes over the course of two years. Subscribe at www.designpodcast.se
Crash Course är en mini-serie på 12 avsnitt riktat till nya designers, men vi tror det finns någonting att lära sig för alla som lyssnar. Nils och Linnea går igenom grunderna, förklarar ord vi ofta slänger oss med och delar med oss av lite handfasta råd. Det kommer ett nytt avsnitt varje vecka.
Minimum Viable Product är något som beställare gärna säger men inte fullt greppar vad det är. Nils Marcus och Linnea reder ut vad som gör en MVP och hur man ska tänka när man designar.
Viktor Balkewitsch Persson är lead designer på Google där han har varit med och tagit fram Material Design och ingick i teamet som tog fram Googles nya logga. Vi pratar med honom om branding och frågar honom hur han (och lite Google) ser på branding i digitala produkter.
We write stuff
People who write well think well is something we all believe over here. Whether it’s user stories or articles on Medium or LinkedIn we like to communicate in written words. Head over to Medium to read all our articles.
With over 15,000 views this is our most read article of last year. Our UX designer Linnéa explain why design principles are a great way to ensure your team give great feedback.
This is our most read text of all time (over 110,000 views to date). Whenever your read an article listing trends their always a disappointment. Our Design Director Nils Sköld list five actual trends that are all still relevant today.
We do experiments
We like to try things and relase them in the wild. Sometimes we fail miserably and sometimes we get it right. Here’s some of our experiments.
