Motion Designer/Animator

Studio La Plage is a family of makers, creators and doers.

Using our technical and artistic crafts we help agencies, brands and institutions make a connection and make it matter.

We’re a friendly, forward-thinking studio: we work flexibly, collaboratively, and we genuinely value work-life balance as much as we – and our clients – value incredible work. Our Shoreditch HQ is growing fast. And we’re on the hunt for extraordinary new talent.

Make it good

As a senior integrated designer, who loves their craft and is obsessed with the visual language of a project – whether it’s a campaign, or just a quick scamp for a new business pitch. You live for the aesthetic detail that can elevate creative above and beyond.

Make a connection

And you’re confident at communicating all of this effectively not just in your work, but also in person, to those clients who sometimes need a walkthrough before they fully commit to a new design journey.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

The basics:

  • You deliver top-tier motion design work
  • You can control the quality of motion work through all phases of a project
  • You’ll collaborate other Animators, Illustrators and Designers in the team
  • You’ll work with Creatives to make sure the final output meets – and exceeds – the original vision for the work
  • You’ll get involved and share your opinions in agency-wide and inter-disciplinary communications

The wows:

  • On top of your master motion skills, you’ve got a good eye for design, typography and layout
  • You’re a strong communicator and presenter – whether you’re talking to an agency or client audience
  • You can deliver motion design for websites and mobile apps

Super ultra bonus points:

  • You’ve got experience working in creative sprints

You bring:

  • 6+ years’ experience (Top 50 agencies or equivalent)
  • You’re a master of video editing software (Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cut Pro)
  • and a master of Photoshop, Illustrator as well as emerging interactive design trends
  • You’ve got a good understanding of Mac OSX, Microsoft Office and Acrobat
