Aquent Studios is looking for a wildly talented designer with industry experience in social media, tech, and /or software, and a knock-your-socks-off portfolio of bold, dynamic work across various digital channels. Joining our client, a leading social media company, will mean partnering as a member of their marketing creative team and creators, to work hand in hand crafting world-class creative work.
Let us not mince words here: buttoned-up, tame corporate design portfolios will simply not make the cut for this team. It’s really a brave, playful, cutting-edge approach to design that is critical in this space. You should know how to play nice within brand guidelines while still having fun, letting loose, and creating something attention-grabbing. We have seen that a social media, tech, and/or software industry background has been a central component of success with supporting this client.
Expect to create presentations, social collateral, brochures, paid media assets, and other mostly digital deliverables. A small portion of the role – perhaps 10% – will be motion/animation work. Some events projects – like sizzles, speaker bios, and keynotes – will be included throughout the year, to support summits and conferences. Illustration skills will come in handy on some of the projects you’ll be working on.
Those applying to this role must have a portfolio for us to review, and must be able to work PST hours.
What you’ll do:
• Collaborate with creative leads and other colleagues to best support larger media goals • Ideate on creative ways to visually communicate new products, features and company developments to our advertising partners for international markets • Produce high-quality motion graphics, titles and animations for campaign touchpoints • Update projects, graphics, assets and templates to bring existing content in line with the most current product and design guidelines • Develop keynotes, sizzles, speaker bios etc. for virtual industry events • Create mockups and animations for visual concepts, layouts, etc. and rapidly iterate on them to generate and refine new looks • Meticulously recreate accurate representations of the chat app and UI and help visualize and animate unreleased UI and products. • Knowledge of various social media platforms and how to use video to engage with different audiences
Knowledge, Skills & Abilities:
• Manage ambiguity well in fast-paced environment with the ability to make informed decisions around evolving products • Passion for technology and critical points of view on its impact on people’s lives • Ability to think conceptually and transition creative ideas into well thought out design executions • Ability to present work in a clear and thoughtful manner • A spirit of collaboration and a problem-solving entrepreneurial mindset • Ability to build design systems and think in integrated fashion
• Industry experience in social media, tech, and/or software • Experience with Figma • Experience with Premiere Pro and/or After Effects • Bachelor’s degree in graphic design or equivalent experience • 6 + years of work experience in design • Digital video editing and motion graphics experience
The range provided is our reasonable estimate of the compensation for this role. The actual amount may be higher or lower, based on factors such as experience, knowledge, skills, abilities and location.
