Do you know how to inform and engage through animations and Illustrations?

This is an exciting opportunity for a Junior Motion Graphic Designer/2D Animator/Illustrator to join a lovely creative communications agency, based in Warwickshire.  You’ll be a self-motivated and passionate creative with bags of talent and eager to learn. Whether you’re just starting your design career, or you’ve got a few years under your belt in the world of work, then this could be a great opportunity to learn and grow alongside talented industry professionals.

The agency is based in Warwickshire, with a part-remote and part-office work structure and a fantastic working culture. This is a full-time, permanent role, offering a salary of £20-28k depending on experience. 

The Company

Our client is a creative communications agency, with big ideas! Their talented team of Designers and Communications Consultants are passionate about creating effective communications for their clients, ultimately helping their employees make better decisions about their money and work. They offer a positive and supportive working culture to ensure the whole team can develop personally and professionally and encourage ideas and views to be shared to help the company be innovative and grow. There is a flexible approach to working life allowing you to work from home as well as spending some time in the office.

The Role

As a Junior 2D Animator/Illustrator, you’ll be working closely with their senior Designers to create imaginative, engaging animations and illustrations for their clients from concept through to delivery. You will need to be confident communicating your ideas, storyboarding, designing in a range of styles and have a creative approach to storytelling. (Most of the animations they produce are 2D, however, any 3D knowledge would be a great addition).

Although the design team of five is currently working remotely, they encourage weekly meet-ups, so being within commutable distance to their Kenilworth office is necessary. At the same time, you need to feel happy about learning the job remotely and happy to communicate virtually. 

As an Animator/Illustrator you will:

  • Be comfortable storyboarding

  • Create a range of explainer style animations using Adobe After Effects

  • Create engaging illustrations for Print and Web

  • Able to manage your time efficiently and work to tight deadlines

  • A natural team player who can also work independently

  • Familiar with basic animation principles

  • Comfortable asking for help when you need it

  • Confident using Adobe After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop… any other programmes you know, then brilliant!

  • Able to both work from home and the office
