About me

 

I am an aspiring Animator, Illustrator and Designer based in London, experienced in fulfilling project briefs with differing scope and budget. 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 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.

Dragons in Europe

Mar 2015
  • I am currently working for Dragons in Europe - a learning languages publishing company. This is a hand drawn people heavy project, with an emphasis on illustrating people of different nationalities and ethnicities in various scenes, to be used as a teaching aid for secondary schools. The learning textbook will be published in October 2015.

Naked Heart Foundation Archer’s Mark

May 2013 - Nov 2014
  • I was commissioned to produce an animation interspersed with live footage, working with Archer’s Mark, for the children’s charity Naked Heart Foundation (NHF). My advanced skills within After Effects and Final Cut Pro enabled me produce explainer and info-graphics animations of a high quality. Ilya was an incredible success, promoting awareness of Autism and realising a fundraising target of €3.2 million for NHF. Along with the specified corporate style I decided to incorporate my playful and colourful approach, in keeping with a children’s charity. NHF were pleased with the design, which lead to Polina in 2014 with a much tighter deadline. I was motivated and proactive with my time – I created a project plan to segment my work into easily manageable sections, this enabled me to meet each firm deadline. The films were first made in English and at a later date, NHF asked me to create Russian versions with new graphics.
