Motion graphics guy for DS needed, east side of Toronto

December 14, 2009 by Dave Haynes

I met Chester Niziol of Omniplan Group and Architectural Media at the last mixer, and with Ray Prachun, they are starting to build out their digital signage business with a focus on making the digital piece an integrated part of the venue’s design (as opposed to bolted on). Omniplan has a great background and base of skills in designing big retail spaces, particularly in the auto sector. If you have ever driven very slowly south on what is affectionately known as the Don Valley Parking Lot (Parkway) you will have seen a BMW dealership with vehicles embedded in the building design and a big media wall. That’s these guys.

Niziol is adding to the team and looking to hire a full-time graphic designer who would work both in print and motion graphics for digital signage. The job is on the northeast side of Toronto, in the Oshawa-Pickering corridor.
