Preferred Experience

**What we’re looking for (THE WORK STUFF):

  • You’re a strategic thinker with strong knowledge in motion and animation principles. You like delivering work that is disruptive and pushes boundaries.
  • Ability to whip up decks and comps and generally - to use a technical term - “make things look good”
  • You’re skilled at storytelling and have a knack for cultivating vibe and tone. You have an exceptional aesthetic, are always brave and innovative in your design approach and have an instinctive understanding of what works well on social (posts, stories, animations….).
  • You have strong technical abilities in 2D animation. You’re an expert at crafting compelling motion work that spans a variety of platforms and touchpoints.
  • Strong plus if you have 3D animation skills (or an interest in developing them). Unrivalled image sourcing skills because we love moodboards.
  • Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite.
  • Proficiency in using Figma or XD to create visual assets or interfaces.
  • Ideas. Big or small, we swap ideas and everyone in the team has a seat at the table. [we don’t swap pokemon cards] Kindness and a sense of humour. There are currently five of us. We all get on really well.

** What we offer in return (THE PERK STUFF)

  • Unfortunately we don’t have a fußball table, but we do believe a company is nothing without happy, fulfilled, interesting, interested employees. .

  • Want to go to a gallery and see a show by an artist you’ve always admired/never quite got? Expense it. A mind works better when it’s challenged.

  • Do you want to improve your French? or if you’re French, to improve your English? Or maybe you want to learn how to code? We believe that it’s always, always a good idea to learn. Find an evening class that ticks the box and we’ll cover it.
