Woven Ink Studio

Creative and Admin Assistant

This newly created role, will be to work alongside the two company directors, to assist with the creative, marketing and administrative parts of our work. Isolde is currently based out of our Dalston studio, and Jess works from home in Oxford, which means most of our communication is done remotely. So we would see your role being mostly home based also (which we can help set you up to do well, and comfortably), alongside some studio work, to support with the filming of animations at our studio in Dalston.

The role will support all our live animation projects throughout the duration of the placement, by contributing creative ideas to the script, concept, storyboarding, filming and editing stages. The animations we work on, often have a focus around mental health, human rights, healthcare and education.

There will be a research element involved in the role, including seeking out examples of new and interesting ways of animating, and finding awards submission opportunities, so that we can share our work more widely in relevant spaces.

Woven Ink are a small, independent animation and creative studio, working with socially conscious and progressive organisations. Our Vision is to see under, or untold stories, shared and amplified, beautifully, sensitively and authentically. We celebrate and love to work with animation and illustration styles that are handmade, real and tactile; as we find this aesthetic compliments and speaks more authentically to the human focus of our work.

We centre the wellbeing of ourselves and those we work with in all that we do. As we recognise we can’t do great work for others, if we’re not first looking after ourselves and each other.

We avoid working to tight, unrealistic deadlines, by building project timelines that allow space for reflection, creativity, and most importantly being human.

We communicate compassionately with our clients, always aiming to be transparent to best manage expectations. We celebrate our individuality and human-ness and work a four day week (Mon-Thurs) to allow time for rest and our own creative practices.
