Art Director

Office: Los Angeles, CA
Start Data: asap
Contract: Fulltime

Pixomondo is currently recruiting for the Los Angeles office where we would like to welcome anyone with the right experience to work and train artists in a fresh environment on exceptional feature film, television and commercial productions.

Requirements of the company:

Good Judgment.

You are a thinker. You plan ahead, look for the best option and the quickest solution, but not at the detriment of the show, the schedule or the budget. You make suggestions, and listen to the same.

Creativity and Curiosity.

You’re smart, but flexible. You’re open to considering the other perspective, and sometimes you have the responsibility to come up with it. You don’t just “do your thing”. You’re interested in how other people are doing “their things” too, and how all of those “things” can be done better.

Selflessness.

You understand that the people you work with are as important as you are, and believe that what’s good for the company, and good for the project, are likely what’s good for you too. You listen to what other people are saying, and understand it. And you communicate well with others in writing and in person because you know you’re not alone.

Courage, Passion, and Honesty.

You don’t do something wrong because you “were told to”, and aren’t afraid to speak up respectfully when it’s important. We want everything to be the best it can be, and you do too. You take risks and responsibility in proportional measure, and you’re reliable. When you say it’ll be done, it gets done; and when you said it would.
