    Role Summary

    MSG Networks is seeking a Motion Graphics Artist to join our in-house Creative Services team. This position is a seasonal freelance position that will run from September through the end of April 2019, and requires on-site work at our New York office. You would work on a wide range of assignments; from our game packages for the Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, Devils, Sabres, Red Bulls and Liberty, to On-Air promotion spots, social media posts, and packaging for our original shows. These packages run the gamut of design from cleaner 2D/Type driven designs to heavier 3D– so versatility is key for the artist who will fill this position. You will be required to work with our existing packages as well as to help us design/develop new packages as well.

Our ideal candidate is also familiar with Maxon Cinema 4D for 3D projects. You should thrive in a fast-paced environment, be a stickler for the smallest detail, and enjoy working with a great team of artists. If you fit all those categories, MSG Networks could be a great place for you. It’s an added bonus if you share our passion for sports and have experience working on sports packages.

    This position will also require affiliation with the local technician’s union which may be obtained after hire.
