We are looking for a mid-level Motion Designer to join our growing video team. You will work with talented creatives and strategists across multiple disciplines (digital, print, social, environmental, and experiential) to develop engaging creative communications.

We’re looking for someone who has a passion for this craft and proactively pushes themselves and others to think outside the norm. Someone who has proven they can add value to a great, impactful story no matter the subject matter. Someone who can enhance a scene to help make an emotional connection between the subject and the audience. Someone who understands composition, selection and editorial flow, and can work with professional, finished videos across a variety of styles, whether it’s a social skateboard video or a corporate documentary.

  • Collaborate with creative and business teams to bring our concepts to life.
  • Conceptualize, build storyboards, design and animation, using different styles and approaches for deliverables as needed.
  • Develop well-conceived creative work that implements the business strategy.
  • Innovate and drive best-practices for an efficient post-production graphics pipeline/workflow.
What You Need to Succeed
  • Gratitude, humor, curiosity, and enthusiasm
  • 3-5 years of experience creating and developing graphics
  • A strong design sensibility
  • Motivated self starter
  • Advanced knowledge and understanding of crafting and animating 2D and 3D motion graphics utilizing Adobe Creative Suite
  • Deep knowledge of emergent trends and technologies
  • Experience in a creatively-driven agency or internal creative team
  • Familiar with high-end post-production workflow

This is a full-time position and we offer health benefits, a work environment without a lot of layers or politics, and a chance to learn, grow and make a difference for both our clients and the agency. If all that sounds good, we look forward to hearing from you.
