and passionate about designing products the right way for
the people who use them. This means you’re also good at:
+ Understanding the complex systems, processes, and
relationships of people and products.
+ Creatively solving problems at all levels of detail: from the big
picture to the nuts and bolts
+ Presenting your work before a room of curious and sometimes
skeptical developers, interested and sometimes demanding
marketers, and time-challenged and sometimes
+ Learning new things. You’re as interested in what worries
3. stakeholders as you are in understanding what delights
surgeons, commodities traders, teenagers, and
+ Being decisive. You value feedback but don’t require it to
make a judgment call.
+ Working collaboratively. We believe the exchange of ideas
among the members of small, nimble teams is the fastest
route to the best solutions.
+ Empathizing. Our design method is built around satisfying the
needs and motivations of people. If you want to make things
better, we want you.
What Cooper visual designers do
Cooper visual designers are responsible for balancing usability with
desirability—using color, style, type, icons, information design, and visual
hierarchy to clarify data, indicate relationships, hint at behavior, and
communicate about brand. In collaboration with interaction designers, design
communicators and other team members, they:
+ Conduct research that gives clients insight into their brand.
+ Create a visual language strategy that achieves brand and user goals.
+ Iteratively reﬁ ne a visual system that supports the interaction that makes
people want to spend time with the product, and that engineers can build.
+ Present visual design work and rationale, helping clients assess the work
