About me
Hi! I'm Anita, a 2D animator and illustrator based in London. I have 3 years freelance experience collaborating with illustrators and working on a variety of projects for agencies and animation studios. My projects focus on the combination of mark-making, texture, pattern and colour, and frame by frame when possible! I tend to lean on the abstract side of the spectrum when exploring ideas and styles, so projects that are a little playful and have room for experimentation are always a plus!

  • Fudio
    FudioAfter nearly 3 years of growing a co-working space, Fudio, in Hackney, it felt like it was the right time to create a website to showcase all the talented creatives in the space.

I took on the task of reworking the logo and animating a short loop to be used for Fudio’s online presence. It was important that animation was vibrant, energetic and representative of the space. We also decided that it was im
  • Mixed Parts - Bizarre
    Mixed Parts - BizarreEvery other month, animation community hub, Mixed Parts, challenges animators to create a short loop based on a theme and colour palette. For this brief, we were given music created by Ambrose Yu and the theme was ‘bizarre’. I listened to the music on repeat and broke the music into pieces. There were three points in the audio where I could visualise morphing and there was a flow to the music that made frame by frame animation feel like the right route. - Design & Animation: Anita Gill Music: Am
  • DASH
    DASHA short animation inspired by a series of speed paintings exploring movement and balance in abstract compositions. I grouped them all together to find a flow and narrative, but in the end, just two paintings were used. Trying to make them all work together felt too forced. More to come with the remaining frames soon! - Design & Animation: Anita Gill
  • CNN - Work Transformed
    CNN - Work TransformedI recently had the opportunity to work on a number of animated segments and frames for CNN’s Work Transformed series. I put some time aside to rework these shots I wanted to use frame by frame animation to recreate them. - Client: CNN Design & Animation: Anita Gill
  • Face Loop
    Face LoopAfter some time of not getting the chance to work on personal projects, I decided to set myself a challenge of creating an animation in the day. I decided to draw one frame every hour in a work day. It felt like a way of satisfying my need to create something full of energy in a short span of time. The only vague parameter was that I wanted a sense of flow and rhythm without planning out any frames. The idea was just to spend 30 secs on each image and draw what naturally felt right for the the n
