Work Experience


Motion Graphic Designer

After developing my skills in different design roles over the years I decided to take the leap into freelance in 2015 and found it enables me to creatively explore a wide range of great projects with large companies like Sony as well as start-ups and social enterprises.

I've experienced as a dynamic but integral part of an in house time being adaptable to working within existing systems or creatively owning a project from concept to post-production.

My work focuses on:
- Idea generation and concept development
- Storyboarding
- 2D / 3D Animation
- Adobe After Effects
- Cinema 4D
- Video editing
- Post-production

If you have any inquiries regarding design work, both potential or pending then please get in touch and we will be more then happy to give you a quote.
