We're looking for:

Motion Designer

Summary

Job Title: Motion Designer

Location: Liverpool, London, UK Based Remote (work from home)

Salary: Dependent on experience

Employment: Full Time

Department: Creative

What We Do:

We love the struggle

What do we mean by that? Well, when you find the struggle you love you find a home, a purpose, the successes you want for yourself. It’s the challenges you relish, rather than avoid.

No great piece of creative communications was ever born without a struggle behind it, be it a film, a book, a piece of marketing or anything else that’s succeeded.

That’s why we’re Defenders of Happiness.

To love the struggle is to find happiness in something you’re passionate about and having what it takes to make it all worthwhile.

Happiness to us isn’t just pleasure, it’s victory in what we do.

And what is that? We’re a full-service employer brand communications agency, and we always sell the truth. We change the way people think about the companies we work with and help them thrive.

Our highly effective creativity, tech, and experience model is fuelled by our disruptive ‘Give and Get’ approach.

To work here, you need to love the struggle. The energy and momentum created by a team focused on a shared goal can be difficult to keep up with and overwhelming if you let it. Our shared passion creates relentless high expectations, so there’s often nowhere to hide.

The upshot is you often surprise yourself with your own progress, and when you ask for help or have an ambitious idea, people will offer support without question. We believe if you love what you do, you’ll move us forward, but that comes with the expectation to do just that.

Progress, results, and new creative solutions are relished, rewarded, and celebrated. That’s how to find happiness at Ph.Creative.

“We are pioneering a creative approach in this sector, working with exciting global brands. ”

The Role

We’re seeking a Motion Designer to develop animated assets via storyboarding, into production and final delivery. 

You’ll enjoy creating a huge range of deliverables: social media videos, shots or sequences in live action films, videos added into interactive content, videos to sell interactive experiences like websites or games, or even videos used in experiential activities, like escape rooms. But we don’t want you to just execute the ideas and produce incredible motion design, at times we will want you to generate ideas too. Help us tell stories, share your ideas, and bring creativity and inspiration to the table. 

Visual branding is a huge part of what we do, for multiple clients around the world. So you’ll need to be a master in working to client guidelines and brand rules, while figuring out unusual ways to push the art of the possible, and create something original that delivers delight as well as delivering on the brief. You’ll be a fantastic communicator, confident in delivering ideas to clients, understanding their feedback, and liaising with the rest of the team internally. 

This is a hugely busy role, and you’ll need to work with various departments - creative (design and copy), accounts, production - as well as sometimes managing freelancers when the load gets too much. Plus, working to client guidelines can sometimes feel like you’ve got your hands tied, which can be really frustrating. But there’s an art in creating innovative work in spite of boundaries, and if you’ve got the gift, then you can put it to good use at Ph. In return, you’ll enjoy a dynamic role where you’ll grow and develop at an amazing pace. You’ll work with a gifted and committed team where creativity is the business’ priority. And playing a crucial part in the delivery of outstanding, award-winning work you’ll be intensely proud of. 

What Will You Be Doing?

  • Take and interrogate creative briefs on a variety of motion assets, ensuring a clear path for production.
  • Collaborate with production on production estimates, and bring skill at managing your time wisely and sensibly.
  • Work from scripts to generate original ideas, and confidently share feedback if you need more support or input on the script.
  • Work with account management and production on deliverables and expectations.
  • Deliver incredibly good and innovative creative work while hugging the brief and taking into account the tech spec.
  • Generate visual and storytelling ideas through production, and join brainstorms on concepts and directions. Use your experience and inspiration from developments in the industry to inform what we do and push us to achieve more.
  • Present your work to clients in a digestible way, explaining your decisions and choices clearly, evaluating and acting upon their feedback and even defending your decisions when it’s right to do so.
  • Recommend, vet, and manage freelance Motion Designers, and support our Production team through this process too.

What You’ll Need To Bring

  • Experience with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and even a pencil.
  • Outstanding motion graphic design skills in Adobe After Effects
  • A deep understanding of digital media creativity and best practice.
  • Ability to interrogate and act on briefs to deliver top quality work.
  • Can present ideas and rationale confidently to clients, and can understand and action feedback.
  • Unrivalled design eye and knowledge in typesetting.

“Now is an exciting time to join the business. We have world renowned brands and a talented team producing world class work.”

- Managing Director - Ph.Ltd

Our Values

Every business talks about values. We talk about them more than most, though, because we spend so much time helping our clients define their true values to attract the talent they need.

So, our values aren’t just words we like the sound of; they’re our principles and our behaviours, they’re the bedrock of our business and the spirit at the heart of all of us that work here. Here’s what you need to succeed at Ph:

INTENSITY AUDACITY INTEGRITY

How Do We Expect You To Show Intensity?

It’s about truly immersing yourself in your work. You’ll give each and every project your full attention regardless of your heavy workload and tight, unrealistic deadlines. You’ll know inside yourself that something is not as good as it could be, and you’ll be willing to lose sleep over it until you get there. It’s about working smart, working hard, and working generously with the exceptional talent around you to deliver real quality. You’ll embrace the long hours, you’ll push yourself forward for more responsibility and more accountability, and you’ll squeeze dry every opportunity that comes your way.

How Do We Expect You To Show Audacity?

It’s about an audacity of ideas: dreaming up and delivering bold and brave concepts which improve the way we do things; which leave our clients speechless in our creativity; which make the best talent pay attention; and which win awards. You’ll have an audacity of approach in your work, leaving no stone unturned; trying, failing, learning, and improving, striving to find the best solution for the challenges you’ll face every day and not being constrained in your thinking. You’ll be looking for ways to develop our processes, procedures, and people. An audacity of attitude, going that bit further and never, ever, settling for anything less than excellence.

How Do We Expect You To Show Integrity?

A role at Ph is all about making a valuable, professional contribution to our projects. Empathising, respecting, and relishing the diversity of our growing team’s skills, backgrounds, and experience. It’s about channelling the many challenges that each project brings into positive action and learning. You’ll be true to your word, reliable and conscientious, and you’ll build upon the high standards we set for ourselves. It’s about keeping the best interests of our colleagues, our business, and our clients firmly at the heart of all that you do. You’ll push back when you need to so that standards don’t slip, and you’ll always refuse to compromise. You’ll set an example, inspire, and be the person with whom everyone wants to work.

What You'll Get

We devised the ‘give and get’ approach to our work to best illustrate what we expect from our people and what they can expect from Ph.

So, in return for your intensity, audacity, and integrity, we’ll tick all the boxes you would expect in terms of salary, benefits, flexible working, and personal development. But there’s much more on offer.

We listen and execute on great ideas that have been well researched and thought through, no matter where those ideas come from or whoever brings them to us. Which means smart people with the right attitude can go far quickly. And you’ll have the exhilaration and satisfaction of working on multiple projects with incredible brands. It’s fast, frantic, frustrating, and not for the faint-hearted, but your work will honestly go around the world.

You’ll work hard to find the best solutions; shape the support we put around you to help you deliver at your best; explore new technologies, techniques, and tactics; and find pride in all you do. It’s about having the drive to ignore the easy options and to choose instead to do work that makes a difference to everyone it touches. It’s about defining your career.

  • Unlimited holidays
  • Birthday day off
  • Flexible working hours
  • Health insurance cover
  • Peer to peer reward scheme

Are you running for cover or ready to dive in?

We always sell the truth, no more so than in the way that we talk about ourselves. We love the struggle. If you’re up for the challenge, confident you can thrive in our culture and make a difference for our clients, we encourage you to get in touch. And if you don’t think you are, please don’t.
