Full-Time 2D Design Supervisor

Nelvana – Posted by Gigglebug Entertainment Ontario, Canada

Job Description

Nelvana is now hiring a 2D Design Supervisor to be based in Toronto, Canada for the upcoming Nickelodeon series, Best & Bester.
Best & Bester is a buddy comedy about two friends who can transform themselves into whatever they want, once per day —but figuring out what’s the best thing to be can be pretty tricky when you can be anything! Add in bucket loads of energy, Best & Bester is buddy comedy for 7-to 11-year-olds that takes the idea of choices and comparisons to ridiculous heights.
Best & Bester is a coproduction between London’s Eye Present, Helsinki’s Gigglebug Entertainment and Canada’s Nelvana for Nickelodeon International. While the Design Supervisor would be based in Canada and hired by Nelvana, they would be working closely with Gigglebug’s Helsinki-based design team in order to ensure design needs are met across the board.
