Motion Designer

We’re looking for a designer whose creativity manifests in motion graphics, moving imagery, and bringing experiences to life across screens of all types. You understand how objects moving through space and time can communicate as much as the forms of the objects, themselves. You’re always pushing to make the best work, whether it’s bringing an interface to life, telling a complex story, or creating the perfect transition. You love the art of storytelling, but also just love to animate. You’re not scared to try out new technologies and visual approaches.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with a team to create a large variety of content and interactive experiences, from UI animations, to storyboards, to motion graphics, to 3D
  • Move from working with others on large-scale projects to owning your own, stand-alone projects from concept to completion
  • Think strategically and apply your skills to proactive problem-solving in a collaborative team environment
  • Have a strong POV on the art direction of motion and how it manifests within the holistic project creative
  • Collaborate closely with design and development partners to create, generate and translate motion across all screens
  • Be an industry expert, live and breath motion design and digital culture
  • Be nimble and flexible to manage multiple projects at the same time as well as an asset in other agency needs, studio-wide
  • Do great work and be great to work with

What You’ll Bring

  • Proven experience working as a Motion Designer, Animator, or related
  • Outstanding portfolio showing a variety of work with your role clearly defined for each project
  • Fluency in Adobe Creative Suite (After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc), and Cinema 4D, as well as interactive design tools such as Sketch and Figma
  • Elastic transitions from Sketch/Figma to motion tools
  • Efficient workflows
  • Consistency in organizing files for collaboration
  • A predisposition toward curiosity and a fearless approach to problem-solving
  • The ability to work and self-direct in a fluid, collaborative environment
  • A willingness to sharing your process and work-in-progress with the team
  • Experience working on cross-discipline teams
  • Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal communication skills
  • Confidence and humility, and an understanding of when/how to apply each
