About me

Hi! I’m Estelle! Nice to meet you! I’m an established art director and motion designer with 20 years industry experience and have been running Estelle Baylis Design for the past four years. I've been extremely fortunate to collaborate with some great clients and agencies on a wide variety of projects along the way! I love taking a brief and bringing it to life. My strengths lie in art direction, creative thinking, brand and strategy design, storyboarding and finally, animation. However, I'm happy to come in at any part of the project and equally happy to collaborate with other designers. I tend to work from my home studio, where my dog, Keaton, keeps me in check, and where required, can bring onboard other specialist animators and producers to help bring your projects to life. This way I can operate like a studio but without the studio costs! I can also join you on-location if necessary. I also have lots of tutoring experience within adult and further education so happy to take on training contracts. Thanks for stopping by and please do contact me at estellebaylis@me.com for any design and animation commissions, tutoring offers or creative collaborations!

Radley Yeldar

  • Full Time
  • During these three years, I headed up the motion graphics team within the moving image department, assisting with the development, preparation and delivery of creative proposals and pitches, conceiving visual treatments, creating style frames and storyboards through to final animation. My role involved both hands-on design and animation as well as art directing projects taken on by specialist partners and freelance staff. Alongside this, I heavily collaborated with the internal brand, print and digital departments within RY across many of the motion graphic/animation projects, therefore acting as a creative bridge between Moving Image, Design and Digital to help extend the use of moving graphics.
