Portland, United States

Content Creator

Content Creators at AKQA are multi-faceted creatives—illustration, motion design, photography—with the ability to take the social voice directed by the creative and strategy teams and turn it into tasteful visual expression. To accomplish this end, a hybrid creator in this role will employ any tool relevant to the task—whether that’s an 5D gimbal setup on a longboard, a rapid tabletop shoot in our in-house studio, or a cheeky type animation in AE. Whatever the title or discipline, the Content Creator is never not tinkering, making, or experimenting.

AKQA’s Portland studio is looking for a Content Creator to support the social expression of a major technology brand, working with creative teams to fill editorial franchises with head-turning eye candy and interesting stories from around the world. 

From our location in Portland’s Pearl District, AKQA offers our staff the opportunity to produce meaningful work for world-class companies in one of the world's finest cities.
