Onto the role
We are hiring a Motion Designer who will work closely with our global studio to create high-quality complex animations and designs for a diverse array of media platforms, including web, native apps and TV.
Working as part of our design teams, you’ll bring interfaces and prototypes to life and deliver high-quality, innovative motion graphic assets for our clients. This is a great opportunity for a creative individual with excellent aesthetic judgement and willingness to collaborate within a multi-disciplinary, cross-functional team environment.
- Understand the relationship between brand, motion and experience design. We’re not looking for one-off Dribble animations but someone who understands how to apply motion to our client’s brand design systems.
- Balance creative flair with technical ability, being mindful that what we deliver must always be technically feasible within the context of the project.
- Use your proven track record in visual storytelling to produce concepts and UI animations with minimal supervision, while maintaining a high standard of quality.
- Make smart connections between client’s needs and technical possibilities and between static and moving design elements.
- Create highly engaging complex animations for a diverse array of media.
- Assist in the creation of animation storyboards and prepare conceptual layouts for motion graphic layouts.
- Participate in brainstorming sessions and share new design perspectives.
- Be proactive in training others in the use of animation software.
- Be the go-to person on the latest animation trends, new plugins, scripts and libraries.

- Strong visual design background with an understanding of graphic design communication skills, like colour, typography and layout.
- A systems thinker, with experience translating and upholding brand style guidelines.
- Inside-out knowledge of Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro and the Adobe CC package. (Cinema 4D would be a definite advantage).

- Ability to solve an array of challenges through visual design.
- Manage time effectively, ability to multi-task and meet deadlines.
