Job Description for Interactive Designer

Interactive designers are responsible for the design and implementation of all aspects of custom interactive web design.

Interactive designers then work to implement this concept with high quality visuals and a strong underlying technical framework. They may also be required to update and modify existing structures of a website not of their own creation. Additional responsibilities for interactive designers include maintaining and updating website design as new tools and techniques become standard, as well as designing peripheral media such as emails, logos, print, social media, and mobile-targeted media. They may be required to conduct or manage user research to receive feedback and update designs accordingly.
