Job description

My client is looking for an experienced, creative and hard-working animator/motion graphics designer to join our small but growing team in Cape Town, whilst being supported by an experienced production team based in London, UK.

You would typically be working on explainer animations, often including characters with voice over, however, you might also work on other forms of animation content such as typography, infographics, and motion graphics integrated into live action footage.

The animations are bespoke and use complex movements and transitions. These require strong disciplines in 2D illustration, animation and motion graphics. It's essential that you have experience working on animation content for corporate clients, and are able to provide examples that are of similar production value and style to those on our website.

The clients range from small startups and tech companies to household brands and large corporate organisations. As there is such a broad range of clients, it means we produce a variety of different styles. You'll need to be comfortable producing abstract, quirky content as well as the more conservative styles.

You're perfect for this role if you:

  • Have produced explainer animations for corporate clients
  • Know After Effects and Illustrator inside out
  • Can work to tight deadlines
  • Are able to create storyboarded concepts based on voice over scripts and a brief
  • Have freelanced before and are happy to work on your own
  • Are comfortable with Cinema4D (not essential)


  • Concept development from script and brief
  • Storyboard design
  • Conceptual style frames
  • Complex illustration design
  • 2D motion graphics and animation
  • 3D design
  • Exceptional knowledge of After Effects and Illustrator
  • Cinema4D
