    We are looking for a creative XR prototyper/creative technologist for a full-time or freelance position at our design studio in London, UK.

    About the company
    Liquid City is a new design practice on the bleeding edge of XR, working with the world’s top technology companies to define concepts of the future. We offer creative strategy, design systems, vision films, interaction prototyping and content development, all with a focus on shaping a positive future for technology in society.

    Our small team is working on exciting projects across user experience, interaction and game design. We are also developing our own projects, to explore the exciting and sometimes terrifying potential of mixed reality, the metaverse, and spatial computing.
