WHAT’S A SENIOR MOTION DESIGNER AT HOOK?

Senior Motion Designers are passionate animators who bring visuals and narratives to life through their expert knowledge of animation principles, their proficiency with motion design and video editing tools, and their ability to lead complex projects. 

They utilize their understanding of the craft and inquisitive nature to elevate the motion work done at Hook, while always learning and growing their skills.

Senior Motion Designers work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team, consisting of visual designers, producers and creatives. 

They use their motion expertise to help the team solve creative and technical challenges. 

On small projects, they may be the sole motion designer while on larger projects they might provide guidance and oversight to additional animators.

Within the Motion Department, Senior Motion Designers are looked to as role models and standard-bearers for work quality and professionalism.
