Mel is a creative director and an Independent Animation Artist. He also corporates in the music and fashion industry as an Art Director. At age 17 he was nominated for The British Young Designer of the year (2005). He graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London (2009) and won 1st prize in D&AD student Awards. He continues to build on his animation vocabulary at School of Visual Art in MFA Computer Art (2015) to expand his visual communication identity. His works related to subjects of surrealism, phenomenology and lucid dream as representation of reality that animation could facilitate a film-taking place within the mind.
