About Splash Damage… 

The Role 

Splash Damage's Senior UI Designers bring the user experience vision for our projects to life by applying their experience and technical expertise. 

Senior UI Designers are well-versed in user-centred design methodologies and make a major impact at all stages of the UI design workflow. They establish the visual design direction for our interfaces; crafting static designs, prototypes and animations with the highest degree of polish and, work closely with our UI engineers to get the best out of our technology.  

Senior UI Designers work autonomously and make smart decisions with the information at hand. They can effectively communicate their team’s solutions both verbally and visually to stakeholders. They always look for ways to push themselves and their projects further and look for opportunities to share their experience with members of their team and the wider UI department.
