  • Experience working with casual, approachable art and animation styles
  • A proven track record of animation and animation-related art assets on projects that have made it to market (especially shipped game projects)
  • Degree or diploma in animation, or equivalent years of professional experience

Skills

  • Excellent Animation and 2D Art skills (i.e. you live in Photoshop and Flash)
  • Solid understanding of Flash animation and effects including classic and motion tweening
  • Experience rigging and animating full-body human characters based on concept character art
  • Superior understanding of the subtleties of movement for human characters, animals, environments, and objects

  • You’re versatile, flexible, and willing to do what’s needed in a fast-moving environment
  • You have an interest in pop culture, celebrities, fashion, and social media!
