Are you a talented & website designer with interest in human rights? Come on board to help us make an impact with the films & collaborative art projects we produce about climate, displacement & social inclusion.

What will you be doing?

We are looking for a website designer to create the look, layout, and features of our Outgrain Arts website. This job involves understanding both graphic design and computer programming. Once a website is created, you will help with maintenance and additions of audiovisual and digital data to the website. Your will work with our development team for keeping the site up-to-date and helping the marketing team to promote our artistic projects and films. 

You will work alongside the two artists Juan delGado and Asmita Shrish. Trusted by organisations across the arts, heritage, education, charity and public sectors since 2001, they have developed an extensive portfolio which includes documentaries, moving image and art installations, photography and sound art works exhibited and screened across the UK and internationally.

You will work either remotely and occasionally in our studio in Central London, taking charge of building OutgrainArts.org, coordinating the publishing of new projects in an accessible and friendly website. You will take into account the message the project wants to convey, and how the audience could potentially react to the interface.

We would like you to:

  1. Design with SEO in mind. A website’s load time impacts SEO, along with how cleanly the site is coded and how the meta tags and descriptions are written. Load time is impacted by design choices, like animations or movements or even the amount of colors or elements, so it’s important to be judicious in choosing the right design elements.
  2. Reach out to the team regularly. Schedule a weekly meeting with each team member you have any active projects with to review the process, get feedback and most importantly, course correct.
  3. Know the market. We appreciate that you have knowledge on Culture & Arts, Social Engaged and Human Rights, so you can create a design that will suit this target audience perfectly.
  4. Be collaborative. Checking on other creative members if everything is looking good. We feel that bouncing ideas off one another throughout the design process make the final deliverable all the more refined.
  5. Producing responsive design. We love responsive design, otherwise known as fluid grids, flexible images and media queries, is an intricate dance between design and execution.

What are we looking for?

Our website is the window to potential opportunities - we are looking for a web designer who is able to implement accessible design to engaging for our online visitors to use.

  • familiarity with cultural and charity sectors although we will be happy to discuss this through.
  • ideally we would like to see a portfolio that showcases your past projects.
  • we love to be impressed by your clear and organized development process.
  • as part of our team, you will tell us the time you need to create Outgrain Arts' website and you will be keen to set deadlines so the tasks are accomplished within an agreed timeline.

What difference will you make?

As a talented designer offering a continued service for maintaining the website during the volunteering time agreed of, this will ensure that our site is functioning properly so we can reach a level of efficiency in our relationship with third partners.

What's in it for the volunteer?

You will benefit from working as part of the team of a young socially engaged initiative producing outstanding art projects that will improve and empower communities across the UK and Internationally.
