THE STORY OF GUST
Every year, thousands of entrepreneurs are driven to start companies fueled by bright ideas they dream will take flight. Trouble is, starting-up a successful high growth company is hard work and confusing. Entrepreneurs are hungry for guidance and direction as they travel the path of initiating, running, and funding their venture. They form the basis of an ecosystem of companies, angel groups, and advisors that drive the small business economy in the U.S and internationally.
We at Gust are at the center of this ecosystem, quietly generating online tools and services that support the intrepid entrepreneur on the path to funding.
We are looking for a full-time Senior Visual Designer to join the Gust team. The ideal individual has a passion for creating beautifully simple experiences for our growing suite of tools and services for the startup ecosystem.
The ideal candidate has a strong UI design background and portfolio which demonstrates experience transforming complex web-based products into something simple and engaging. This candidate is responsible for introducing beauty across our products, from the general design framework to the svg animations which thoughtfully provide visual cues and bring the experience to life.
Although your specialty is UI design, you have a strong understanding of UX principles and best practices, or better yet; you consider yourself a hybrid UX/UI designer. You never take a wireframe at face value with static page by page designs. Rather you bring a fluidity of the journey into your designs, able to take in the big picture as well as the details, working collaboratively with UX designers on the overall experience and design system. You are a strong conceptual thinker that enjoys being a part of the initial creative process and working collaboratively to elevate the experience.
