Legwork Studio is looking for an Art Director with strong design, illustration and concepting skills. The Art Director will be responsible for developing design direction though style frames, concept art, character development and storyboards. You will effectively communicate your concepts to clients, and provide direction to animators during production to keep your vision consistent from start to finish. We are a small team, therefore the Art Director should also feel comfortable as an animator, stepping in where necessary.
First and foremost this is an Art Direction/Design position. Your role as Art Director is to develop design direction that will be the foundation of any animation or motion design project. Every project is different, so your portfolio should demonstrate the ability to design a wide range of styles from illustrative, 3D, characters, typography and so on. You are design driven and detail oriented, your taste level is high and you can easily differentiate ‘good from bad’.
Legwork is an independent studio based in Denver, CO. Our ofﬁce is just south of downtown, within walking distance of some of Denverʼs best venues, galleries, bars and restaurants. We create animation and interactive experiences for leading brands and agencies across the world. We are a passionate, hard-working team of designers, animators, developers and illustrators. We work in an open, collaborative office. We approach challenges with an open mind and a positive attitude. We build stuff that launches. Good work and extra effort donʼt go unnoticed here.
We provide an excellent benefit package. Salary is competitive and negotiable on a per-case basis.
