I was recently working as a Senior Website Designer in the small law division of LexisNexis. Responsibilities included wireframing and designing the overall look and feel of law firm websites as well as managing our elite clients with budgets ranging from $30k to well over $1.4M a year. In this role, it was my responsibility to contact the client and discuss their marketing needs, figure out the UX and wireframing, as well as develop their brand and online identity, on budget and on time. I was consistently tasked with contacting clients who are upset with their project and saving the project with my design skills.
