We need a Motion Designer.

Hovercraft is looking for an experienced motion designer to join our team in Denver. This role is perfect for a self-driven person with a strong conceptual approach. You must be able to deliver against a vision from start to finish in a deadline-driven setting. Responsibilities include concept development, storyboarding, style frames, and motion studies that establish the visual direction for our digital projects. We are a small but mighty team, so while this is a primarily a design role; you will definitely need to flex your animation muscles, too.

We are not your typical motion studio, so knowledge of non-traditional interactive projects and digital technologies is a huge plus - but not required. Animation projects you will be working on include event show packages, environmental motion graphics, and interactive installations.

Go-getter work ethic? Responsible and accountable? Innate attention to detail and highly organized? Smarter, Not Harder tattooed on your non-Wacom holding hand? If a bunch of yes’s, you’re landing at the top of the list. Resume/Portfolio to hello@hovercraftstudio.com
