UX Designer

Lugano Full time

Ander Group was founded in 2006 by Florian Anderhub and Manuel Gamper, who merged their different approaches into a balanced yet dynamic business formula. Today, the Brand Strategy & Digital Design agency is a great combination of people, experience and technological assets that serve internationally based clients from offices in Lugano, Lausanne and Zurich.

Our goal is to create digitally enhanced customer experiences, weaving on and offline touch points into passionate brand architectures and clear business processes.

Our expertise
Brand: strategy, identity, architecture, platforms
Experience: service design, omni channel campaigns
Innovation: product & service design, digital transformation

This is your position if…

You don’t care about trends: you are a visionary with a deep understanding of human behaviour.
You partner with clients and own their product’s values, therefore you are able to translate their requirements for functionality into interactive solutions. You push the work through strong collaboration and challenge the team to think beyond what’s expected.

This is a hands-on role: you create designs, personas, sitemaps and whatever is needed to bring the team’s ideas to the surface. This entails a thorough analysis of the market and knowledge of users’ psychology; design of the human-computer interface for optimal effectiveness; integration of well-architectured content; graphic design and finishing for best aesthetic appeal.
