DESCRIPTION

ResumeWriters.com

We are looking for a UI/UX Designer to optimize our existing website (hosted on Shopify) and design/code out our digital lifestyle blog (on wordpress).

UI/UX Designer must have extensive experience with Shopify and WordPress and understand the underlying principles that constitute effective web design and functionality. The website has a lot of issues that need to be addressed primarily on selecting the right suite of shopify plugins, optimizing product pages, and overall inconsistencies with design.

Two main projects:

1) Optimize our existing website – www.auster.com

2) Design/Code out our digital lifestyle blog

The goal of the blog is to be the brand’s lifestyle digital publication and drive traffic to the main website – auster.com.

It will feature articles in vaping, music, design, arts, and other cultural elements. Various contributing writers will be constantly adding content to the blog therefore a robust CMS system with different levels of access for the various contributing writers is also required.

The blog’s aesthetic should be inviting, intuitive, and extremely functional. Given there will be a lot of media rich content, the blog should be able to seamlessly handle all forms of media (video, GIFs, images) on both mobile and desktop and present it in a visually engaging format that is not overwhelming. The blog should utilize a card based format wherein each post is on a color coded card.
