We’re hiring: Creative Motion Designer

May 24th, 2018 / Sophie Allen

We’re after someone pretty special to create stunning visual content for our social media clients, including Fox’s Biscuits, Pukka Pies and Belvoir Drinks. If you’re a brilliant designer and skilled animator, read on. You could be just who we’re looking for.

Requirements

We want someone with at least 5 years’ experience who has worked in agencies. To fit the bill, you’ll definitely need to be…

  • Experienced in After Effects and Premier
  • Able to design and animate concepts from start to finish
  • Adept in Illustrator and Photoshop (you should know both like the back of your hand)
  • Experienced in creating content for social media
  • Organised and motivated

It’d be a big bonus if you were also…

  • Handy with a camera
  • A talented illustrator
  • Interested in social media

 

Responsibilities

Your main role will be to create beautiful content, both static and animated, for social media. But it won’t always be social; aside from designing attention-grabbing graphics, GIFs and videos for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, depending on your portfolio you’ll also design for packaging, print and digital. We work for a huge range of household-name clients, which means you’ll always be kept on your toes.

 

Why apply?

For one thing, we’ll pay you a competitive salary and give you a decent chunk of holiday to boot. But as well as that, our agency is genuinely a brilliant place to work. Our team is close knit and super friendly and we’re set slap bang in Nottingham City Centre, so it’s an easy commute – and even easier to find a spot for after-work drinks.

 

Ready to send your application? Great. Email hello@togetheragency.co.uk with your CV and a brilliant portfolio and/or show reel, with ‘Vacancy: Creative Motion Designer’ as the subject line. Or, if you want to know more, give us a call.

New client: BlueIron

May 1st, 2018 / Allie Redmond

We’ve been appointed by BlueIron to work on their social and influencer projects.

BlueIron is the ‘fastest growing liquid iron supplement in Europe’ [Daily Mail]. The supplement is packed with wild Nordic blueberries, one of nature’s finest superfoods, and it’s suitable for pregnancy, vegetarians and vegans – so it’s absolutely safe and delicious, whatever your diet.

According to the NHS 27% of women aren’t getting enough iron. It can also be tricky to get the correct amounts of iron whilst following a vegan or vegetarian diet, so it’s going to be our job to spread the word about BlueIron.

From spring 2018 we’ll be working on BlueIron’s paid and organic social campaigns, helping them to grow awareness of the BlueIron brand, share new products, and encourage women to assess their iron intake and look after their health the Nordic way. We will also be working with them on their influencer strategy across the UK and Ireland. BlueIron have already worked with some fantastic influencers such as Irish PT and Instagram sensation Maeve Madden, as well as no 1 best-selling food author Rozanna Purcell.

We’re incredibly excited to join the brand in shouting all about the Nordic way of wellbeing. Keep an eye on our blog and social media to be the first to see our work.
