Serato is one of the world leaders in audio software for professional DJs and musicians. World renowned artists such as Fatboy Slim, DJ Snake, Major Lazer and Mix Master Mike (of the Beastie Boys) love our products and perform with them on a regular basis.
This is an intermediate design role where you will help us design the user interface for our music software products. Sitting in the Design and UX team, your job will be to provide UI concepts and designs that help the product team deliver software that looks amazing. While the main focus is making stuff look great, the ideal candidate will also have a good understanding of UX principles, and know that function comes before fashion when it comes to UI. You need to be comfortable churning out lots of different concepts, but understand working within the tight constraints that come with designing a functional UI.
-Create beautiful UI designs for our world leading music software products, from concept stage, mockups, wireframes, and lots of final polish
-Creating design style guides
-Design both the Interactive and Visual elements of UI
-Work closely with the UX / design and product teams, iterating on findings from research and requests from stakeholders
-Be a core member of the UX / UI team contributing to research, user testing and summarizing your findings.
Who you are
-You want to design software that is used by professional DJs and musicians from around the world. This means continuous refinement of big
complex products, rather than getting a new project each week.
-You’ve had 2-3 years of experience designing digital products in an agile software environment.
-You’re happy delivering things to tight specifications, but can also go crazy and provide a bunch of different ideas and designs when appropriate.
-You take pride in your finished work, but don’t mind showing your working, sharing unfinished concepts and ideas.
-You have a good understanding of current UX frameworks and best practices.
-You have a design or other relevant qualification.
At Serato our culture is highly prized and so finding someone who will integrate well with the team and company, sharing our values of having fun whilst working hard and continually improving. If you love software and music and want to work in a high performing team at a company with a great culture, this could be the role for you.
Fantastic work. Also hearing great things about the Drive project in low-income communities. Congrats to all involved!

Absolutely, have to admit this was confusing to me and my team as well.
Oh man, this is TERRIBLE!!!!!! So damn confusing...just have a straightforward rationale and stick with it Lightbox...
I like it
As David Ogilvy would say ... perhaps the advertising agency thinks the public find the actual products as boring as the agency does.
Honouring the ads—and the agencies responsible for them—that make the biggest impact on consumers and get more bang for the client’s buck.

Who’s it for: Forsyth Barr/Summer by FCB New Zealand
Why we like it: New Zealanders are notorious for taking serious decisions lightly and this tongue-in-cheek ad by FCB for Forsyth Barr’s Summer KiwiSaver scheme gets that tone just right. A human-sized sheep in trendy clothing talking about his negligence towards his financial responsibilities is enough to get a chuckle out of anyone. The thinly veiled analogy to ‘not be a sheep(le)’ and take responsibility is not preachy but light-hearted.
Who’s it for: ANZ by TBWA
Why we like it: We all know it’s rare to see a heart-to-heart between two men on television so it’s nice to see just that in ANZ’s new KiwiSaver ad by TBWA. The way KiwiSaver is brought up in the ads is pretty clunkily approached but adding other topics such as dating, household chores and life makes the ad an endearing watch.
Who’s it for : Spark by Colenso BBDO
Why we like it: Matariki season is bringing with it a lot of joy and pride nationwide this year. Spark’s unique video embraces what is important about our very own New Year – family, traditions and knowledge. More an educational resource than ad, the care taken to make the imagery and sentiment culturally appropriate is evident in the decision to include all nine Matariki stars. The animation artfully articulates the stories behind the constellation while the te reo Māori script is as much soothing as it is exciting to see the language celebrated.
