Careers

We are looking to fill two positions:

Web UI/UX Designer 

The UI/UX designer at Tusitala is in charge of designing websites, from ideation to prototyping and usability testing. They will be required to work independently in a small team and take the lead in all project design. They will work closely with the project manager, developer as well as freelance designers and illustrators (where required) to interpret our clients’ vision into a visual concept and product.

At Tusitala, we learn and improve continually to stay ahead of the curve. We almost never do the same thing twice, and strive for innovative and experimental approaches to digital storytelling.  

We assess candidates based on attitudes, stretch potential, and interest in doing experimental work. The ideal candidate would want to challenge themselves and is confident and excited to do what has not been done before. We welcome individuals who have a wide range of interests, prefer a democratic workplace culture, and enjoy working in small, flexible teams.

Responsibilities

  • Conceptualize creative ideas and translate the project vision into compelling visuals 
  • Gather, understand, evaluate and integrate business requirements and users’ needs, in collaboration with project managers and programmers
  • Translate concepts into user flows, wireframes, design mockups and prototypes that lead to intuitive and high-quality user experiences
  • Run usability testing sessions and UAT interviews
  • Create digital assets for company branding, including logos, GIFs, digital banners, social media assets, etc. 
  • Manage design interns and freelancers, when required

Internships

We are always on the look out for capable, committed and creative interns in the following areas:

  • Editorial, research and arts management
  • Design, illustration or animation
  • Web development

Full- or -part-time internship positions are available on a rolling basis, usually capped at 1 person for each of the three areas above. We prefer for interns to commit to at least 3 months with us, and for a maximum of 6.

About

Tusitala is a digital storytelling studio that reimagines the future of reading where tech meets art. We publish eBooks, produce and transmedia stories, and introduce storytellers to different technologies. We use our expertise in technology, UI, UX and design to transcend the traditional boundaries of print and digital.

Tusitala started in 2010 and is based in Singapore. It means “teller of tales” in Samoan. It was the nickname given to author Robert Louis Stevenson by the locals of Samoa, where he spent the last years of his life telling stories. Our work embodies the essence of a storyteller: using different mediums and techniques to deliver a powerful message to audiences.

Our logo is a kitsune, an enchanted nine-tailed fox that casts spells of illusion and designs rich worlds that the others see, feel and perceive as real. Inspired by its intelligence, mischievousness, and shape-shifting abilities, Tusitala’s values are knowledge, creative rebellion, and versatility.

With a transmedia mindset, you don’t have to choose between print and digital.

Work

We’re happiest when we’re working on projects that allow us to be creative and experimental. And, we think, our best work is yet to be done.

Curious about what we’ve worked on?

When creating for digital, technology should augment – not distract from – content.
