Motion Graphics Designer .:. creative agency (work from home project)

Location: DC-Washington
Company Order Number: 1433
# of openings: 1


A global integrated communications firm with offices in Washington, DC is looking to engage a motion graphics designer with terrific storytelling skills, to design and produce a two to three minute animation for a corporate client. This is a remote work project -- all work can be done from the workplace of your choosing. 

We're posting this announcement mid-September, with the hope of identifying the right person for the project and kicking it off all within a week's time. We're ideally looking to talk with individuals who have worked at the Senior Motion Designer level. But portfolio reviews will drive our decision making process and we're therefore interested in hearing from skilled motion designers at all levels. 

Brainstorm Creative Resources has recently completed several projects with the client firm, and we have supported the primary stakeholder on this project since 2013.  

* Minimum 2 years of ongoing professional experience working as a Motion Designer or similar.
* Experience working at the Senior Motion Designer or Art Director level is preferred.
* Deep, demonstrable experience creating motion graphics in After Effects.
* Proficiency working on non-linear editing platforms (Premiere, Avid, FCP).
* Ability to integrate into the workflow of a fast-paced, collaborative digital messaging team. 
* Team player, proactive, entrepreneurial.

We are only interested in receiving applications and inquiries from individuals who are available to commit hours to this project throughout each day over the course of three to four weeks in September and October. Individuals with full-time dayside jobs, who typically work on freelance projects only at night or over weekends should not apply. As noted above, work can be done from any location. We prioritize freelancers/consultants/vendors who operate from a home base in Mid-Atlantic states. 

Brainstorm Creative Resources regularly posts hourly pay rates and client budgets in job descriptions. Our client on this project has not provided a specific budget. However, we have talked with them about budget parameters. Based on our experience facilitating similar projects in the Washington, DC area over the course of more than fifteen years, we believe they have realistic expectations regarding the cost of this project. 

Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that has been focused on placing creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with Washington, DC-area employers since 2003. We are recruiting for this position at the request of our client, the hiring organization.
