Design Communicator

Design communicators are people who communicate design solutions the right way to the right audience at the right time. To do that, they must be fully aware of the design and the reasons for it; they work with UI designers as full-time thought partners.

  • Be responsible for multiple projects at one time
  • Work with the UI designers and engineers to understand how the products work and the details of the new designs
  • Edit the existing specifications to reflect the new and/or updated designs using HTML (Dreamweaver), a wiki (Confluence), and/or Word
  • Solicit and integrate feedback from stakeholders into the specifications
  • Attend design review meetings and project update meetings
  • Coordinate with remote teams
  • Constantly improve the quality of the specifications
  • Ensure consistency across the spec library


Here is what you'll need to be successful:
