About me
I'm an award winning New York based art director, designer, videographer, animator, and artist with sixteen years of experience in creative for entertainment and media brands and agencies including NBCUniversal (Bravo, Oxygen), Viacom (MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon), EPIX, AMC, the Doctor Oz Show, People, Entertainment Weekly, the New York Post, Condé Nast, Food Network, Gawker, the Upright Citizens Brigade, AKA NYC, and Situation Interactive, among many others. My experience encompasses key art, design for print and digital, experimental stop motion music videos, motion graphics, and everything in between. I'm a strong collaborator who enhances visual and narrative projects with personality, spirit, character, and humor. I love reviving analog creative processes as fresh and unique approaches within evolving modern landscapes. Examples of my work can be found at www.elizabethstarkey.com.
