Motion Designer - Social.Lab Amsterdam

At Ogilvy Social.Lab we like fresh thinkers. We like people with new ideas and new ways of solving problems that aren’t your average tried and tested methods.  

We’re looking for a driven and talented motion designer to join our creative team in Amsterdam. Here you'll work with likeminded people, pushing for creative solutions that nail the brief and excite our clients.

The ideal candidate shows a good sense of design principles, social expertise, motion graphics skills and strong attention to detail. You’ll translate our clients’ brand language by designing and producing assets tailored for social and digital campaigns. You’ll need to balance when to move fast and know when to focus on the details.

The Basics:

  • You have 3 years of agency or in-house design experience under your belt
  • You have a keen eye for detail and can spot a millimetre misalignment from a mile off
  • You can pick up a brand’s visual guidelines and identity quickly and apply it as a lens across all the creative work you produce
  • You’re as confident designing static social posts or digital banners as you are transforming a landscape video into an engaging Instagram Story
  • You’re resourceful and innovative in your creative thinking. Give you one 30 second brand video and you’ll cut and craft it into multiple dynamic pieces of cross-platform content
  • You are passionate about working with and learning from others and contributing as part of a team that includes art directors, copywriters, strategists and content managers
  • You have an open and adaptable mindset, pragmatic attitude and a hands-on mentality
  • You’ll build relationships of trust with existing clients
  • A visual portfolio that speaks volumes about your talent, skill and experience with social and digital content
  • Proficiency and experience with Adobe Creative Suite, particularly After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere Pro
  • A structured workflow – if another designer needs to jump into your working files, they’ll be good to go with no fuss
  • Awareness of social and digital formats and a passion for experimentation with new and evolving online platforms
  • Solid Keynote design skills
  • The ability to independently crack on with creative tasks, as well as the humility to put your hand up when support or collaboration is needed
  •  Ability to multi-task and adapt quickly to changing requirements and conditions
  • A drive to continuously improve and optimize your creative, based on performance insights
  • Positive and constructive attitude. You handle tight deadlines and pressure without issue
  • Thrive in a fast-paced work environment
