Looking for a job

Ciara Griggs


Hi! I’m a graphic designer and animator based in Michigan.

United States

What I'm looking for

Three things that I'm looking for in my next job are a collaborative culture, opportunities to learn and grow my skills from a technical standpoint, and a chance to learn more leadership skills over time. I’m a very ambitious person, and I’m always looking for opportunities to improve and excel within my job. Finding a workplace that has structured opportunities to progress is important to me.

I am a graphic designer and animator. I have experience using many different types of software such as Adobe Creative Suite, Maya, Microsoft Office, etc. I graduated with a B.A. degree from the University of Michigan, and majored in Art and Design. I have completed design and animation internships. Currently doing freelance work, and looking for full-time or contract opportunities.
