Senior Space Designer

Design Boston, Massachusetts


Description

Space experience designers at EPAM Continuum enjoy investigating what humans need and want in order to develop visionary concepts for companies to make an impact on their users in a variety of settings. Whether the project is for higher education, public transportation, or a fast-food restaurant, space experience designers ideate spaces, frameworks, or stories to communicate our concepts to our clients and their organizations. Designers then develop prototypes to help envision experiences so that end-users can provide relevant feedback before companies fully commit to a potentially game-changing, new initiative.

The space, or the environment, is a key aspect of a customer experience. At EPAM Continuum, space designers contribute both their expert knowledge in spaces/environments and understand how space works with other disciplines.
