Breeder Venture-Studio

As a community of designers, storytellers and creative technologists, we have a passion for pushing the boundaries of storytelling – and a reputation for creating world-class motion and interactive design experiences.

We articulate concepts, craft compelling stories and ignite emotions with a holistic, design-driven perspective. Backed by Josephmark and Studio Breeder’s world class motion and interactive production capabilities, we are the new breed of storytellers and narrative designers in augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), artificial intelligence (AI) and mixed reality (MR).

A newly created position, we’re looking for a Creative Director to lead the art direction of interactive and immersive technologies of Breeder venture studio. You’ll get to define and own the immersive experience and motion team, vision and mission, together with the Executive Creative Director of JM and Head of Narrative of Breeder Ventures. Best yet, you’ll lead an intimate multi-disciplinary team to create world -class, unforgettable experiences for users and audiences alike.

What we do at Breeder:

Operating at the intersection of traditional storytelling with emerging technology and new media processes, Breeder conducts both research & development and executes on interactive and motion design productions. Examples of our focus areas include:

  • Envisioning immersive experiences and virtual worlds for metaverse projects including our XR lab Haven.
  • Developing conversation design and synthetic voice capabilities for AI generated conversations.
  • Oscillating between hardware and software production innovations in motion capture (see Splash).
  • Considering emerging business models and new ways of thinking about IP ownership, NFTs and the enablement of blockchain.
  • Navigating synthetic conversation design into real-time game engines for users to play and build as they interact with them.
  • Collaborating with IP partners to create new experiences that are an extension to their storylines, or completely new storylines.
  • Focused on the creator economy and producing short-form content to increase audience demand.

Overseeing a team of motion designers and various projects at all stages, it’s essential that you’re able to context-switch effectively and react quickly to new information, trends and direction to strategically pivot when necessary. You’ll strike the right balance of analytical and conceptual thinking, translating needs, commercial objectives and technology capabilities into innovative and ground-breaking projects and ventures.

About you:

It goes without saying, your foundational skills are anchored in traditional production. From definition, scoping and planning to synthesis and storytelling, you will steer teams at all stages of production. While in a leadership position responsible for upholding a strong vision and aesthetic across all projects, it's necessary that you too have executional abilities:

  • Ideally, you'll have the ability to produce 3D and 2D assets in order to leverage workflow knowledge and delegate effectively, and/or have a solid understanding of real-time 3D, motion graphics workflows, including working knowledge of visual and UI design fundamentals, character design and animation.
  • As a seasoned creative with ample experience generating concepts and leading design efforts you’re able to communicate design decisions effectively including defining new business opportunities that translate insights into consumer-facing experiences.
  • You pride yourself on your world-class design aesthetic that’s versatile enough to span sleek sci-fi title sequences to poppy robo-influencer music videos.
  • You’ll contribute original ideas on all aspects of interactive, 3D, VR, motion graphics, game and voice production and development.
  • You have a nurturing and coach-like spirit, attuned to the needs of your team to help them grow and thrive in their careers.
  • You have the proven ability to guide, evaluate, and direct the creative work of a multidisciplinary team in the design of large, complex interaction systems. Working closely with JM and partners, you’ll collaborate with design leads, product strategists, developers, and creative freelancers.
  • Oversee the day to day responsibilities of multiple projects, clients and budgets within deadlines.
  • You have an innate passion for innovation and craft as well as experimentation with technology, enabling the creation of new concept models.

This is a full-time position that offers a competitive salary, equity across the Josephmark venture portfolio and flexible working hours. We’re open to this position being based in close proximity to our LA (PST) or Brisbane (AEST) HQ and open to cross-collaboration of projects across time zones.

At JM and Breeder we know better outcomes start with diverse teams. We are an inclusive workplace committed to fostering a sense of thriving and belonging for all. That's why we strongly (see bold and underline usage) encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply. If you share our values and our venture mindset, you’ll find a home (with your work bffs) at Breeder.

If you’re reading this and thinking, “Oh no, I only tick a few of those boxes so I’m not going to apply...”, don’t be silly. If you’re a standout human, we want to hear from you!
