Art Director, Motion

SnowdayinBrooklyn, NY

As an Art Director at Snowday, you'll play a key role developing the visual approaches to projects and lead the design, animation, and post-production teams who bring that vision to life. You're a storyteller at heart, with experience working with writers and creative directors to ensure projects not only look beautiful, but also meet key communication goals.

You're an accomplished designer yourself who jumps at the opportunity to explore new visual concepts. You're a patient leader who knows what it takes to guide teams of artists to excellence under pressure. And when you're not heads-down in the work, you love collaborating and being our brand partners' trusted source of visual guidance and inspiration.

You know how to draw and we consider you dangerous because of it.

  • Lead small teams of illustrators and designers from concept art to final design

  • Direct 2D (and occasionally 3D) animated visuals from animatic to final cut

  • Collaborate directly with brand partners and Snowday creative teams to find and implement solutions to feedback

  • Lead the extension of creative brand assets across various channels and social platforms

  • Nurture relationships with design & animation talent, both freelancers and outside studios

Skills

  • 5+ years experience

  • Expertise in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and familiarity with Figma

  • Strong design sensibilities that span layout, illustration, typography, 3D, and UI/UX

  • Experienced in navigating design and animation workflows

  • Technical animation skills are not mandatory, but proficiency in After Effects and/or C4D is a big plus
