We’re on the hunt for a talented Graphic and Motion Designer to join the herd. You’ll mainly design and create content for our wonderful clients’ social media channels. 

We’re looking for someone with strong graphic design and video editing skills.

  • Examples of great creative ideas
  • Confident communicator with strong people skills
  • Happy working independently on your own initiative

Great to have

  • The ability to shoot high-quality film or stills
  • Copywriting skills

In return for all this, we’re offering:

  • £20,000-£25,000 per year (depending on your level of experience)

Travel and out-of-hours working

While we’re happy to offer remote and flexible working, there are likely to be some occasions when you need to come to the office for meetings or collaborative work. For these days, you’ll need to be able to get to our lovely place in Cardiff Bay.

Very occasionally, you may need to travel further afield, and there might be some work outside normal hours. We promise to give as much notice as possible, and we’ll always be considerate of any caring commitments you have.  

Diversity is important to us

We believe diversity makes us better at what we do.

    There’s a rustle in the Welsh woods that has been whispered about for generations. They believe it to be Blue. They say it’s not sasquatch, but Stag. All that’s been spotted is the odd antler in the overgrowth or hoofprint on the forest floor.

    We’ve taken matters into our own hands and set up a series of cameras to try and locate Seb the Stag for ourselves. Brave visitor, can you help us in our quest to unravel the mystery and marvel at the myth?
