We’re looking for a Senior Motion Graphic Designer with a passion for telling compelling, visually interesting stories. This role will bring client stories and messages to life by combining 3D, motion graphics, animation, design, and video into standout visual and media experiences that engage, excite, and educate audiences.

The ideal candidate is an intelligent storyteller and dynamic creative who is excellent to work with, likes to learn, is a people person, and has the skills to think laterally and conceptually to bring briefs to life through standout visual executions. You are someone with exceptional skills in, and a demonstrated passion for, design, as well as a point of view on how concepts translate into images.

You will have worked in branding, advertising, or digital marketing for at least six years, preferably in an agency setting, and will have proven experience in concepting. You are comfortable working independently and can take a concept from idea right through to execution.

Working directly with our Head of Motion, Creative Directors and the wider Yonder team, you’ll be an integral part of a small, (yet mighty!) motion team, and work closely and collaboratively with our superb creative team.

You’ll be ready to help us supercharge our branding activity through standout creative design and storytelling, bring loads of ideas to the table and be excited to drive them through to execution.

  • Storyboard, design, animate and create standout design and animations across formats and platforms
  • Work in a multi-disciplinary team with writers, designers, and some of your kind… motion designers!

  • Manage workflow efficiently and take responsibility for timing and delivery, including that of junior design colleagues
  • Collaborate, document, and communicate proactively throughout the work cycle
  • Review content, incorporate feedback and ensure work meets agency standards
  • Demonstrate a learning mindset and stretch the boundaries of the craft each day, sharing trends and formats with colleagues
  • Constantly strive for new, better, and more innovative solutions
