Graphic Designer Stray Boots Interactive Tours
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Stray Boots is hiring a designer at our urban game / mobile-guided exploration startup. You see, we adore great design but aren't so hot at creating it ourselves, so we're looking for a talented designer to make our site and apps as fun to use as they are functional, and as communicative as they are pretty.
You'll be the first in-house designer on our team, and you'll never lack for variety: you'll be redesigning our logo and branding, our mobile app and website, marketing materials, email communications, designing interfaces for entirely new site and app features, and everything in between.
We don't just want a Photoshop operator: take charge of our design projects and come up with solutions we didn't realize were possible to the problems we didn't even know we had. We'll depend on you to cut through the too-long list of competing concepts that we want to communicate, to come up with focused, uncluttered designs that funnel the user towards the most important actions.
If you communicate well both visually and with words... If clumsy interfaces make you wince... If you obsess as deeply over macro-scale balance as you do over the exact right hue of blue or the pixel-perfect placement of a period... then we want you on our team!
What we're looking for:
Website and mobile design
User experience design for web and mobile apps
Logo and identity design
Emphasis on UX and usability
A gorgeous portfolio
Ability to distill complex concepts into focused, action-oriented visuals
Bonus Points for:
Ability to code your own designs in HTML & CSS
HTML5 / CSS3
A print project or two under your belt
To apply, send cover letter, portfolio, and tell us why you're excited about working for Stray Boots.
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED
We're a New York-based company started by a couple of guys who thought that exploring a city could be way more fun if you made it into a game. We love discovering new things, and our goal is to make it more enjoyable, entertaining, and interesting for our customers. Our text message-based, interactive tours and private scavenger hunts are a fun way to enjoy any occasion or just spend an afternoon.

|Company Profile:||Angel-backed start-up that's looking to turn the travel industry on it's head. Millions of people every day are subjected to lackluster walking and bus tours of cities across the globe. Generally, these tours stink: they rely on the passive, sit-and-listen model (yawn); they hold their participants captive, sucking all the fun out of exploring a city; they lack originality of content; and they're overpriced. So we invented a better way. Through our proprietary technology, we deliver cell phone-guided, interactive tours to tourists and locals who want a more engaging way to discover their urban surroundings. Recently awarded a 2011 TripAdvisor.com Certificate of Excellence (yay, certificates), we have been rapidly expanding across the country. We're in 8 cities now. By the end of this year, we'll be in 20. Next year, the world...|
