Job Summary:

Dead Ready Productions’ growing animation department is looking for trained designers with a passion for striking visuals and a keen eye for typography, composition and storytelling. The successful applicant will have an excellent eye for detail, a diligent attitude to quality control and a devotion to producing videos of the highest order, and will play a key role as we continue to deliver increasingly high quality content to our clients.

We offer the opportunity to work on a wide range of video content, such as explainer videos, animated infographics, and character animations, for a diverse spectrum of end clients, such as ASOS, Marriott, the NHS, Virgin Wines and Accenture.

The successful applicant will contribute to the concepting and art direction on these productions; working as part of the team to help devise the best visual treatments to realise the client’s objectives, as well as playing a hands-on role in animation and editing, primarily using the Adobe Creative Suite (particularly After Effects).

In addition to their excellent design skills, the successful applicant will also have an opportunity to develop camerawork and video editing skills, and support the rest of the team when these skills are required.

We value the creative development of our team, facilitating regular peer-to-peer learning sessions as well as encouraging self-tuition. Our aim is for every member of our team to feel excited by their work and to feel confident and supported by the company directors.

If you are a trained motion designer and have a solid portfolio of engaging and interesting visuals, we’d love to hear from you, so get in touch.
