Instapage is seeking a qualified, deadline-conscious and detail-oriented Illustrator / Motion Graphics Designer, like you, to contribute artistic elements and motion design to our custom videos. You will work closely with our in-house video producer, editors, motion designers and marketing team to ensure that the Instapage product and brand are faithfully and beautifully represented through video.

What you’ll do:

  • Take ownership of your creativity and technical skill to execute a balance of visually pleasing illustrations, animations and motion graphic designs that borrow from advertising standards yet meet the practical requirements of a fast growing business
  • Apply your advanced artistic skills in storyboarding, graphic design, illustration, compositing, rotoscoping, typography, animation, motion/camera tracking, alongside other specialized approaches to create premium quality video deliverables
  • Work effectively within the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite: Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, Mocha, Premiere, Media Encoder and other plug-ins/design/business tools, as needed
  • As a creative contributor, you’re expected to:

  • Work seamlessly between multiple projects of varying complexities while respecting deadlines
  • Be original, yet respect brand consistency and recreate moods and scenes, as needed
