We are looking for a Creative Researcher and Treatment Designer to join our in-house animation studio.

You will work closely with our producers and directors to assist in the creation of pitch-winning treatments for commercials, music videos and entertainment projects with a focus on animation and mixed media production.

A taste of your responsibilities will include:
• Visual research
• Graphic and editorial design
• Build layouts in InDesign or Google Slide according to a client’s brief (a significant level in In-design is required)
• Video research, basic editing of mood reels and reference clips using Adobe Premier.
• Copy-editing and proofreading of treatments
• Providing an active voice during the pitching process, engaging the director on a conceptual level and helping them to wrestle their ideas into shape
• Maintenance of an efficient reference library of all research assets and presentation documents
• Designing and maintaining internal documents and newsletters
• Copywriting abilities will be an advantage

Animation interest at degree level or higher is useful but an interest in moving image and design is imperative.

Salary dependent on experience.
