We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Creative Designer with After Effects. Working across a hugely varied set of clients (including a number of super-brands), you’ll need a ‘can do’ attitude and an expansive skillset. You will be part of a small, close-knit creative team and you will report directly to the Creative Director. You will work both independently and with other members of the creative team – including copywriters, conceptual creatives and artworkers.
If you have at least 4-6 years of experience – and a willingness to push yourself to produce work that is of a the very highest standard – then this fast-paced but hugely fulfilling role should be of interest.
You will be all about the ideas. As a result you’ll get to stretch your conceptual muscle on everything from infographics to branding, motion graphics to multi-touch social, digital and OOH campaigns.
You’ll need to be able to take a project from the initial brief right through to completion – sometimes working on your own, sometimes as part of a project team.
You won’t be scared of a layout pad – drawing and scamping ideas will come naturally to you
The ability to come up with engaging and creative copy headlines would be a distinct advantage, too.
As well as the ideas, you’ll have an eye for the finer detail – with a passion for crafting beautifully executed finished visuals.
A lot of what they produce at the agency is video and animation-based. So they need someone who’s confident producing storyboards and narratives, along with the ability to bring them fully to life using After Effects.
It should go without saying that you need to ‘get’ digital – and understand where and they can add social media value.
