Production Designer / Set Decorator (Exciting opportunity with elements of fashion and cinema design with a film studio)

Not your everyday studio position. Challenging and fast-moving, yet friendly and supportive: a career
practicing your art that you will look forward to every day. Work with incredibly talented artists in an
exciting environment where every month is different.

Positions Available:

Focus on achieving noticeably remarkable and portfolio-worthy results, with only some projects that simply need to be done in a short
timeframe (we aim to win awards for our work).
The same variety as working at an agency, but without the cutting corners to deliver too quickly.

criticism, with or without the sugar coating, to iterate into even better designs.

commercials, infographic videos, mixing live action with 3D, and short snippets for social media.
