Graphic & Motion Graphic Designer

Keen to get your teeth into some amazing brands, and help carve out their online identity?

We’re looking for a graphic and motion graphic designer to join our growing team in Leeds.

Who are we? We’re Brilliant Social Media, a digital agency with a difference. We’re quickly becoming the go-to social media agency for food and drink brands in the U.K. because we love what we do, and we do it… well, brilliantly.

This role won’t be simply designing graphics and motion graphics. You’ll have a lot of creative freedom and be brainstorming ideas for campaigns, designing creative and engaging content across a range of platforms including social media and email, storyboarding ideas, researching, forging relationships with clients, and so much more.

We’re looking for a skilled designer, with a strong attention to detail. Being clued up on social media is a bonus but not essential, but we expect you to be willing to learn if you’re not.

To be considered for the role you will need to be extremely self motivated, creative and able to demonstrate your ability to work under pressure whilst retaining a strong attention to detail. You should be full of ideas and be able to communicate your vision to others as well as working from briefs and under the creative direction of the clients and the creative team. 

Each day is different and as you’ll be working across a range of brands your style will need to be adaptable. Social media is both planned and reactive so you’ll be expected to think on your feet and be able to create content within a short space of time if needed.

You need to be thick skinned and have an adaptable style to fit the client brief, you should be able to take creative feedback in your stride and not be too precious if your ideas are not used – above all you should have drive towards creating the highest quality of content and have a positive and enthusiast approach.

Brilliant is made up of a team of specialists but each person brings something new to the team, and isn’t afraid of chipping in on whatever task comes their way. Having a great portfolio goes without saying but beyond that we’re looking for an ambitious, passionate and hard working person to join our Brilliant team!
