Insomniac has branched into other areas of production over the years, but design is still the heart of the company. We believe designers have an obligation to make the functional beautiful. We see every project as a chance to bring a little art into the digital world.
We don't just design, we impress. Our goal is to make every site, no matter how small, the kind of site that makes people linger just a bit longer to admire the work and care that went into its creation. We are excited to have an opening for an experienced, proven senior-level designer who will help lead our team into a bigger and better future. We work with Fortune 500 companies, NGOs, non-profit organizations, start-ups, and government agencies. The variety of work and clients you will be exposed will keep you on your feet!

The Senior Designer serves as the principle creative lead responsible for directing all phases of creative work for assigned accounts. From concept development through production, the Senior Designer is responsible for ensuring the projects under his or her direction reflect creative work of the highest caliber. The right candidate will be expected to inspire and motivate their design team. The ideal candidate fills in the gaps between graphic design and user experience, demonstrating expertise in a variety of digital design and interface approaches for web, social and mobile platforms.
