Conlan Normington is a motion designer/hip-hop producer who loves working on graphic, playful and abstract animation using Cinema 4D or After Effects and making obnoxious beats from field recordings. Conlan’s work aims to find the unique, nuanced and distinct personality for each brand, then communicate it with something completely unexpected. Over the last 4 years working as a designer and animator at two global branding agencies, Interbrand and FutureBrand, Conlan learnt from some of the best in the field and helped craft new identities for some of Australia’s largest brands. He then moved to the mountains and started freelancing.Locked Pro Plan feature
