We’re currently looking for a talented and motivated Designer to join our London based visual effects team. As a department, we create high-quality motion graphics for a host of film studios and production companies. The ideal candidate will have an exceptional eye for detail, an interest in typography, and a sound understanding of the principles of graphic design. Excellent knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign are essential, and any experience of motion design and post-production techniques would be an advantage. We’re looking for someone with 2+ years’ experience, ready to hit the ground running in our fast-paced but friendly London facility.

Overview of the role:

Our talented team of designers and motion designers are responsible for localising title sequences, narrative inserts and visual effect shots for feature films, trailers, online marketing, broadcast programs and other downstream materials for international distribution. Our work is viewed by audiences around the world and we pride ourselves in creating sequences that are indistinguishable from the original version. In this exciting and ever-changing role, you’ll be responsible for creating localised proofs for client approval as well as high-quality static artwork to pass on to our motion designers. This is a key position within our expanding creative department where you’ll be expected to use your experience to help support and mentor more junior members of the team. In order to facilitate work with international clients and ensure deadlines are hit, after a period of training you may also be required to work an altered shift pattern including weekends. For this reason, it’s important that any applicants are flexible when it comes to their working hours.

Responsibilities:

  • Analysis of original visual effect shots
  • Font identification
  • Font creation/adaptation
  • Typographic layout and the handling of translations
  • Creation of pdf proofs for approval
  • Production of finalized artwork
  • Replication of visual components in multiple languages
  • Creation of content that is indistinguishable from the original version
  • Provide technical insight and advise account managers of the best solutions for clients
  • Support and mentor Junior Designers
  • Develop new workflows and procedures for the most efficient delivery of content
  • Assist with in-house branding, marketing, and social media

Desired Skills:

  • Exceptional knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign
  • Excellent typography skills and a good knowledge of fonts
  • An eye for layout, alignment, balance, and proportion within a design
  • Positive attitude towards problem-solving
  • Enthusiasm to learn new skills and share own ideas and creative knowledge
  • Impeccable attention to detail and a conscientious work ethic
  • Take ownership of own work and deliver to the highest possible standard
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills
  • Ability to meet tight deadlines and manage multiple projects at once
  • Capacity to maintain focus in pressured situations
  • Pro-active approach and ability to forward plan
  • Ability to take direction, work under your own initiative or as part of a team
  • Clear and methodical approach to work, allowing design changes to be efficiently made
  • Polite and professional approach with excellent communication skills
  • Experience using Windows Operating Systems
  • Competent in Microsoft Office (Word/Excel/Outlook)
  • Experience using additional Adobe software such as Bridge and Acrobat

Additional Skills:

  • Experience using font editing software
  • Knowledge of motion graphics software such as Adobe After Effects
  • Understanding of 3D modeling software like Maxon Cinema4D
  • Knowledge and experience of scripting languages
  • Familiarity with post-production processes and services
  • Understanding of digital cinema/broadcast colour spaces
