Do you love to tell a story visually through awe-inspiring motion graphics and animations? Do you want to help craft educational videos about design topics that are every bit as high-end as what National Geographic does for history, science and culture? Do you want to showcase your skills in every frame while conveying powerful ideas into thousands of minds daily? That’s a big audience, hence why we’re looking for serious talent.
The Interaction Design Foundation is the biggest online design school globally. Founded in 2002, we have over 80,000 graduates and counting. We’re market leaders in online design education because the world’s leading experts create our content and because we’re specialized in design. What’s more, with over 1.5 million monthly visitors, we’re at the forefront of providing premier design education to such organizations as IBM and SAP, as well as thousands of other members. Our ever-growing community now needs a first-class Motion Graphics Designer and Visual Storyteller to help each of them along their learning journey.
Visual storytelling is a huge part of our winning formula: to reach our members on that magic level where they’re captivated to complete their course while feeling utterly inspired every step of the way. It’s about bringing entire worlds of knowledge so close that our members can taste and digest each morsel of delicious learning effortlessly and that—and this is the big one—they stay addicted to learning!
You will, therefore, become an essential part of our team, someone who is making a direct impact on not only the growth and reputation of our foundation but also the whole world of education and beyond!
This is a paid full-time position which is location independent: You’re free to work from wherever you want in the world. You will have regular video-call contact with your colleagues and get to meet them physically on team trips.
You’ll be working closely with our UX design experts, founders, video editors, course producers and other team members to make the most inspiring and engaging lesson videos for our ever-growing catalog of courses. Videos are the best way to educate, and we have the best instructors: people who live and breathe UX design and many associated subjects. That means you’ll need to produce the best motion graphics and animations to support what they’re teaching and employ all the tricks you know to make this magic a reality!
You’ll feel energized as you take your skill set to an even higher level among a highly ambitious and supportive team. Your expertise and eagle eye can help us refine our visual presence yet further and improve our video style guide. In fact, your sheer talent and eye for detail will be a big part in shaping the future of our video production and—by association—of design itself!
So, what do our videos look like? Well, here’s an example of what’s called a “design story”. In it, we filmed various airports and compared some aspects of their designs. As you can see, educational videos are not merely “talking heads with slides”.
This next video shows you what our educational videos—based on interviews and lectures—look and feel like. It shows how much emphasis and effort we put into animations, footage and on-screen text to give the ultimate learning experience.
And this third video is an example of how we create promotional videos to engage new users and spread our work even more.
So, if after seeing these videos you think “I could do better than that!”, then we’d love to hear from you!
