  1. I hope it goes without saying that I would love to work with the fine people at Super Human. Somehow you guys consistency come out with great design work week after week, it’s impressive to say the least. It also seems that the culture at Super Human is more about the fun of design, the strength of collaboration and the joy that comes with being proud of the work you do. While other places seem to have lost sight of the passion that makes good design and good work you guys are out here hitting it out of the park. Anyway before I ramble on too much, let me get to it. I believe that Super Human would give me the environment and collaborators I’ve been looking for to bring my work to the next level. While all the same I believe that my skills, knowledge, and passion will help push Super Human in any direction it would want to go.

    In closing, I would love the opportunity to learn and grow with Super Human. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Thank you,

    Travis

    I’m super excited that Superhuman is looking for a Motion Designer and/or Editor. Although I believe I may not have the adequate skill level for both of these positions, I would still urge myself and others to apply. It’s worth the time and investment. Though their space may be small, the work they create, as a team, outweighs the space they operate in. Just proves that you don’t really need a big 50+ team nor a 3 story building to create successful work. All you need is some talented individuals, an amazing work culture, a bit of super powers from everyone, and you got an incredible agency like Superhuman to push your creative skills to its limits. Definitely a privilege and honor to be one of the lucky few to be interviewed during times like these. Good luck.
