Our client is a growing healthcare communications agency looking to expand their team.

People are the main focus of what they do, whether that’s patients or their own team.
 
They are constantly being asked to educate patients and healthcare professionals on how drugs work and the effect they can have on improving people’s lives. This is where the role of an animator can help.

Alongside the skills of their writers and scientists, they use animation to make what is often complex scientific messaging easily understandable.

Afterall, if pictures can paint a thousand words, imagine what a moving one can do?
 
The majority of their current animations are vector based two dimensional, using the usual suspects –
Premier, After Effects, and Cinema 4D, although they are open
to other skills and ideas.
 
You will be part of their creative team and work alongside designers, scientists, art directors, and external resources when needed.
