COLOR is hiring a

Designer/Animator

Do you like obsessing over type layouts and graphic composition? Do you see the world in hex codes? Does nothing please you more than making your vector files fly around a precomp? If so, read on.

COLOR is a young Creative Agency dedicated to creating, destroying, rising from the ashes, destroying, and then creating again.

We’re in need of a talented, honest, funny, freelance Motion Designer to help us accomplish that mission in-house.

This role will be dedicated to our Gaming team. A healthy (bordering on unhealthy) love for videogames is strongly recommended.

What you need:

  • Fluency in Illustrator, Photoshop, and After Effects a MUST
  • Good taste and broad stylistic arsenal
  • Confident approach to complicated and type-heavy layouts
  • A practiced sense of timing and anticipation
  • Knowledge of and respect for strict brand guidelines
  • Meticulously organized, well-labeled, and color-coded approach to project files
  • Ability to translate feedback from non-motion designers and provide alternate solutions and compromises
  • Transparency and honesty in time estimates
  • Strong communication skills and a willingness to ask questions
  • Ability to work calmly under tight turnarounds
  • Ability to easily switch gears between projects
  • Lack of ego and a killer portfolio

What you'll do:

  • Design graphics and titles for motion-based projects
  • Refine and adapt existing assets and follow brand guidelines
  • Work within a set style, from simple transitions to blockbuster typography
  • Prep assets from Illustrator to After Effects in a variety of looks
  • Work autonomously and make confident design choices
  • Adjust layouts to accommodate different languages for localized exports
  • Occasionally bring own designs to life with clean, snappy animation in After Effects
  • Export animation sequences and develop MoGraph Templates (MOGRTs) optimized for gameplay editors
  • Work collaboratively with producers, creative directors, art directors and other creative leads

Location

This job requires candidates to be in either Seattle, WA or Los Angeles, CA or willing to relocate.
