3D & Motion Designer [m/f/x]


We’re looking for a (Senior) 3D/motion designer for each of our offices in Ingolstadt, Berlin and Detroit.


Part of our visual design team, 3D/motion designers at icon in car use their unique skills to bring our designs to life. They add aspects of space and time, and are tasked with giving the user experience an emotional component. In early design phases, they lend a hand using their comprehensive know-how in 3D rendering and animation. Further, they create a brand-oriented design strategy via mood animations and short key transitions in 2D and 3D. In the realization phase, basic know-how in real-time 3D is a huge advantage because it allows us to create optimized 3D models and textures. In addition to mastering the tools, a well-trained eye for design is a must.

Our projects can change quickly, so as a 3D/motion designer you should be keen on experimenting and working on interactivity. This means you could cross paths with applications like Unity, 3D, Adobe Experience Design and Richware Kanzi!

A senior 3D/motion designer typically works independently on his or her own projects, is strong and convincing when dealing with clients, and leads junior designers. He or she reports directly to the lead UX designer or creative director.

Your abilities

  • Comprehensive design know-how that reaches beyond 3D and motion design
  • Able to lead and mentor a team of junior designers
  • Create and define various design ideas using moodboards, mood animations, and short key transitions
  • Collaborate with visual designers to create 3D scenes and compositions

  • Work together with information architects to create overarching UX concepts
  • Compose real-time capable 3D scenes
  • Build interactive prototypes where required
  • Create and design presentations
  • Be convincing in client presentations and discussions
  • Support and improve internal processes and workflows
  • Enjoy national and international travel
  • Actively contribute to our company culture, to mutual exchanges and inspiration


  • Degree in design or comparable vocational training
  • Extensive experience designing for various platforms
  • Digital native and a real “doer” who’s familiar with and helps drive the latest design trends
  • Analytical thinking in a broad and detailed sense
  • Structured way of working, even with multiple projects running in parallel
  • Expert in Adobe CC Suite
  • Experience working with one or more 3D tools, e.g. Cinema 4D and/or motion design know-how, e.g. After Effects
  • Knowledge of prototyping tools, usability testing and user research is a really big plus
  • Good english
