Full Time Motion Designer
10-6 Monday to Friday
Salary: Dependent upon experience
Location: Stockwell, South London
15% Commission on new business
Studio Moross is a 10+ person design studio based in Stockwell, South London. We work predominantly in music, TV, and live, with a strong focus on branding and art direction. We use a non-hierarchical approach to project assignments, and support people in creating a job role that works for them and meets their interests and aspirations. There is often emerging talent working as part of the team, being nurtured through internships, work experience and mentorship programs. Our open and fair office culture is an imperative part of the fabric that makes up Studio Moross.
The well-being of our staff is just as important to us as the work we produce. We recognise that the creative industry is notorious for being a stressful environment with long, unsociable hours – often resulting in an unhealthy office culture. So we implement shorter more efficient working days, leading to increased productivity and an all-around happier team. Any work outside of regular office hours is paid, in addition to the base salary.
Studio Moross is devoted to acknowledging and implementing diversity within the company. Director, Kate Moross uses their platform to speak and write in the aims of, in Kate’s case, uplifting the voices of non-binary and LGBTQI+ people in the creative industry. Studio Moross makes a conscious effort to address imbalances within the creative world by challenging all forms of oppression. Understanding higher systematic forces at play and hiring accordingly is crucial to their core values.
We are focused on building a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you are excited about this role, but do not meet every qualification listed, we still encourage you to apply.

How We Work
We work quickly and often manage multiple projects at once so you will need to be comfortable multitasking. At Studio Moross our projects have shorter faster lead times so we often see projects through from start to finish. Our working process is collaborative and we often work as a team to complete projects. With TV and Music clients our turn arounds are often quick but give us a lot of freedom in our work.
What We Don’t Do!
We don’t do a lot of character animation or VFX work. We don’t work with many big corporate brands, so we don’t get weighed down with mammoth projects. This does mean that we are sometimes limited by our budgets, and don’t have the luxury of lots of research and development – our ideation is quick and relies on the confidence and creativity of our team members. We turn around work quickly – so we don’t get time to be super precious, the plus side to that is you will see work out in the world and so will your peers, and that it is a very rewarding part of the job.
The main Studio Moross office and restrooms are located on the ground floor with single step. We have an access ramp that can be fitted to the step. The doorways are 90cm wide. Unfortunately the building does not have a wheelchair accessible restroom. All our restrooms are gender neutral.
