·       Have a Human Centered Design approach in solving user needs with deep customer empathy
·       Apply design thinking to create world-class digital experiences across multiple platforms and channels, by bringing together user needs, business goals and technical realities
·       Translate concepts into designs that illustrate simplicity despite system complexity
·       Create instant tangibility for the team and the client through storytelling and rapid prototyping methods, ranging from paper sketching to digital prototyping 
·       Explain and sell design decisions to clients and stakeholders
·       Work directly with customers, peers and creative leads to design end-to-end experiences using participatory and iterative design techniques including observational studies, customer interviews, usability testing, and other forms of qualitative and quantitative research to uncover insights, learn about user behavior and verify design concepts
·       Effectively communicate research findings, conceptual ideas, detailed design, and design rationale both verbally and visually
·       Work closely with development teams to ensure that design specifications are implemented
·       Participate in and contribute to Project Debriefs, project templates and design POV’s.

·       Ability to conduct heuristic and functional reviews of other digital experiences
·       Mentor other novice design practitioners
