Work With Us

Thoughtful Motion Graphics Designer

At Harc Creative, we’re inspired to produce meaningful design that connects impactful organizations to their audiences’ hearts and minds. While our paper, pens and pixels tend toward stillness, our imaginations light up when we think about what motion could do to bring our creative work further to life.

Many facets of our studio focus on developing graphics and communication assets, but we’re looking to add a Motion Graphics Designer to our team to breathe kinetic magic into otherwise still concepts. Within the context of web design and social media design, the successful candidate will work alongside our Principal Designer, Storytelling Strategist, and Creative Director to weave motion into our graphic output.

Who You Are

While we acknowledge, uplift and respect motion designers focused on 3D-rendering and contemporary experimental graphics, our intent is to find a Motion Graphics Designer whose interests lie in bringing 2D graphics to life. Do you get excited about animating static logos? Kinetic typography? Unexpected motion transitions in web-design? Looney Toons? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we’re excited to hear from you.

What You’ll Do

Reporting to our Creative Director, the Motion Graphic Designer’s main focus will centre on iteratively concepting, storyboarding, and producing high quality animated assets for publication to the web or–in the case of designing a website’s animated transitions–implementation by our web developer. The successful candidate will have experience with the Adobe Creative Suite, specifically Illustrator and After Effects. 

This is a part-time, contract position with opportunities to shift and increase your responsibilities over time. We’re a compassionate team of creative risk-takers, so our aim is to find a collaborator to grow alongside into the future. Please be honest and upfront regarding your career path and current context; we’re open-minded about how or where the successful candidate works.

What We Offer

As a growing agency, we are starting with a contract position for this role. Additionally, we offer:

  • Competitive compensation
  • A balanced, healthy work environment with options to work remotely or in-office depending on your lifestyle and preference
  • Mentorship and training opportunities
  • Working on engaging and values aligned projects with exciting design to develop from
  • Flexible work schedule
  • Inclusion in decision making around project timelines to ensure that you have the time you need to do your best work
  • An inclusive and open-minded environment where you can bring your full self and your lived experiences

Deadline

We will be accepting applications until February 28, 2023.
