Motion Designer

About us

Hi. We’re Skeleton, a video production agency that crafts creative and engaging videos for our clients. We’re a friendly, close-knit team of specialists who believe in continually learning and pushing ourselves.

We help diverse businesses & brands from all over the globe to get the most from video (think Boots, Experian, and Box). Our aim is to become the UK’s most-loved B2B video agency famous for our creativity, customer service, and the amazing results we achieve for our clients.

About the role

We’re looking for a talented Motion Designer with a creative eye and the ability to support in the development of animation projects, from storyboarding and asset design to the final animation.

You’ll be working in our colourful main office at the University of Nottingham’s Innovation Park (featuring inspirational fish tank and wall art). You’ll join our Skeleton family, which is small enough that we all know each other’s favourite songs but big enough to allow you to cultivate your own unique skillset.

On a day-to-day basis you’ll be supporting our Senior Motion Graphics Designer and broader team as we work with key clients, from universities to FTSE 100 companies to startups, help turn their ideas into beautifully appealing animation.

In short: we’re looking for a talented, imaginative and passionate Motion Designer that is willing to work hard, learn fast and grow with our business. You enjoy working independently and as part of a team to solve exciting & challenging client problems, creating animations we’re all proud of. If that’s the sort of thing that gets your heart pounding, we’d love to hear from you.
