About the role

As a concept artist at Ambassadors, you’ll work within our close-knit creative team to help design characters, concepts, environments and assets of all sorts that will be brought to life through 2D and 3D animation. This position requires someone who knows their way around character development, turnarounds, movements and expressions, and can utilise a wide variety of illustration styles to suit the needs of different projects. 

Day-to-day tasks may include: 

  • Researching, brainstorming, and presenting creative concept ideas
  • Developing and exploring characters and environments as sketches and paintings 
  • Visualising body movement, body language and facial expressions through sketches, paintings and turnarounds 
  • Developing matte paintings, backgrounds and environments for 2D and 3D animation
  • Sketching sequential storyboards for animation or live-action film production
  • Visualising how a one dimensional painting will come to life in 3D space to inform and guide our internal CG department
  • Next to art and illustration, you will sometimes put your pen to work for small graphic design tasks such as creating Ambassadors Instagram posts or pitch work

About you

  • You’re a crazy-skilled artist who is looking to help us push the boundaries of design and animation into new territories
  • You have a strong eye for detail, even under tight deadlines
  • Your illustration portfolio shows artistic and creative talent, with a variety of styles and a great eye for shapes, gesture, anatomy, perspective, composition, colour and values
  • You’re curious, imaginative, and love telling stories of all shapes and sizes 
  • You ideally have some experience in commercial creativity, whether that's through studies, freelance work, or previous experience in a creative studio 
  • You have mastered a variety of styles, can switch things up quickly, and are happy continuing to experiment with new tools and techniques 
  • You like working as part of a team with art directors, creative directors, animators and more, and can work collaboratively on multiple projects in an open, peer-reviewed team 
  • You can make life easy by keeping your files and layers super-organised
  • Available to start in summer 2021
  • You can work well in English 
  • Self-motivated, proactive, and happy working independently from home

What we offer

  • Remote working for now, later with flexible working from our Amsterdam studios with team lunches, drinks and events 
  • An opportunity to play a vital role in the design, look and feel of Ambassadors' world-class animation 
  • A role in an enthusiastic, multidisciplinary team of international colleagues you can learn from
