Job description

Want to explore a new creative frontier?

We are an interactive studio in Bristol, creating touchscreens and interactive experiences for global brands.

This is a fast growing, dynamic and exciting space with huge potential for an interactive studio like ours, as clients scramble to create interactive experiences for their customers.

We work with ambitious global brands who expect exceptional creative work and who want to stand out. So, we’re looking for an exceptional mid / senior digital designer to help build a unique business with ambitions to be a leading interactive studio.

We are looking for someone to not only work hands-on with projects, from concept to delivery but also to help develop and grow the studio and our brand.

You’ll have the creative freedom to push boundaries and create experiences that few other agencies have the luxury to do, or, turn to us to develop.

As we’re a small team we’re looking for someone who’s motivated and inspiring to be around. You’ll be an integral part of the studio as we grow and will always be looking to the future, exploring new creative technologies, ideas and techniques.

We need someone who’s capable of working in several key areas. We’ll need to see some fantastic digital creative work, UI design as well as an understanding of interaction design, UX and animation.

The types of creative experience that suit our work are motion graphics, VFX, game design, advanced web/app design and animation, projection mapping even some radical print design.

So, if you’re up for exploring a new creative frontier we’d love to hear from you. Please send an up to date CV and portfolio to damjan@popcomms.com
