You will bring positivity and enthusiasm to a wide range of managed projects, and feel comfortable working with your peers and at times leading the less experienced motion graphics designers on the team.  Ideally your strong conceptual and animation skills are used in concert to create deeper meaning and tell a more thorough story.

• Some motion-related tasks include, but are not limited to: design and production of motion graphics, kinetic type, animated supers, background treatments, transitional elements, type design and font selection, intros, end tags, animated logos, color keying, motion tracking, rotoscoping and masking.

• Create and produce required graphic elements from script while maintaining client and agency brand standards; organize the graphic elements library, archive digital project files and troubleshoot MAC graphic systems issues, as required.

• Ability to independently manage the MGFX workflow for larger animation projects. Includes adhering to best practices for DAM, file prep, review links, and regular status updates to team members.
