Hiring Howdy Illustrators/Animators, Were Hiring!

Good News! We’re on the hunt for another illustrator/animator to join our team here at Launchpad Toys Galactic Headquarters and help create giant city-stomping robots and adorable pandas. If you think that you or anyone you know would be a good fit for our team (love of toys, ice cream), please shoot us an email at

Responsibilities Include:

  1. Character/background design & illustration (Photoshop, Illustrator)
  2. Cartoon animation (After Effects, Final Cut Pro)
  3. Logos, pamphlets, banners, and general marketing materials
  4. Web Page layouts/mockups
  5. Shenanigans (lots of them)

A portfolio of playful characters is a must. Experience designing for kids/tweens is a big plus. The position is full-time at our office here in San Francisco. We can’t wait to hear from you!

    Hey Launchpad! How are you doing? I hope all is well! I absolutely love what your studio is creating and would appreciate the opportunity to talk and learn more about the company. I look forward to speaking with you.

    Thanks Francis – we appreciate your interest. We’re all square for illustrators at the moment, but your portfolio is beautiful. Nice work. We’ll be sure to keep your work in mind for future positions!

    Today my daughter created and uploaded a Toontastic request for ballerinas and mermaids. In the likely case you don’t actually review the kiddo cartoons thought I’d put the bug in your ear here. :) Thanks!!

    Thanks Denise – that’s a great idea! Please thank your daughter for us. We’ll certainly add both to the list :)
