Hi, I’m Daniel Millyard, a Creative based in London, working everywhere in a variety of mediums including Design, Animation and Photography. Since a childhood spent recreating films with lego pieces on my bedroom floor, I’ve had a passion for storytelling. As I grew so did my desire to tell my own stories. Our family didn’t own a camera, but we did have one of those old beige computers, so my first creations were janky little animations and games made using Microsoft Office Powerpoint’s rudimentary shape animation tools. This would be the beginning of a never ending journey into digital art and a quest to continue to learn more skills and tools to tell stories with.
