About me
@armandcordero armandcordero.com Experienced Animator, Illustrator and Designer, fulfilling project briefs with differing scope and budget. Since graduating from Kingston University studying Illustration and Animation (BA), I have independently directed, designed, and animated short films for charity events, songs and poetry, as well as worked collaboratively with other designers on larger scale projects such as short film and tour visuals. My personal style consists of strong playful visuals with an allusion to ancient myth and folklore, beliefs and religion, current affairs and popular culture. I can comfortably adapt my style to suit the needs of clients. Skilled in a wide range of mediums – hand-rendered and computer-generated techniques. I utilise my skills to create, design and develop ideas – finding suitable resolutions to complete any given brief to high specification. Confident in my approach using the skills I have learnt from university, self-initiated projects and freelancing. A fast learner and always keen to acquire new skills to improve my craft. I work well under pressure within tight deadlines, both individually and collectively as part of a team. My skills include Adobe Creative Cloud (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Animate, InDesign), Final Cut Pro, 2D Animation, Info-Graphics, Animation Direction, Character Design, Storyboarding, Print & Logo Design, Illustration, Graphic Design, Typography, Visual Communication, Printmaking, Mixed Media, Embroidery.
