Cognitive is a pioneer of whiteboard animation. Our clients are both diverse and fascinating - from global brands to smaller family businesses. We love working collaboratively with our clients to find and bring their stories to life. We are currently looking for dynamic freelance Senior Creatives to join our team.

Working with a Creative Team of Scriptwriters, Illustrators and Animators, our Senior Creatives play a pivotal role in proposing and delivering the creative concepts that take our clients' stories to the next level.

We are interested in experienced creatives who, ideally, have drawing skills. At a minimum you must be able to prove very strong visual thinking skills. We would expect you to have a track record, at least two years' experience, of coming up with strong visual ideas to bring to life client stories/communications.

Examples of work that we would like to see in order of preference include:

  • whiteboard animations

  • animated explainer videos

  • highly visual infographic/ rich pictures

  • storyboarding corporate communications

Successful applicants will be masters at transforming client communications from drab to memorable, from dull to exciting and from complex to simplicity itself. You will also be an enthusiastic and energetic collaborator, who is able to build strong relationships remotely.

We are looking for talent that is happy to work on a freelance or short-term contract basis, working remotely, but willing to travel into our Studio in Folkestone to establish effective working relationships, if necessary. Read the Job Description below for more detail.
