About me

I am a motion designer, currently based in Media City in Salford. I like to produce work that has a lot of personality and a touch of humour. A large amount of my most recent work has been with the BBC and children's specifically. I like to take broad brief and add personalty, humour and interesting visuals. If you get a chance please take a look at some of my work on my website.

        Currently

        Motion Graphics Designer

        Tracks and Layers

        Feb 2016
        • Salford, United Kingdom
        • Full Time
        • At Tracks and Layers I am responsible for a vast array of projects from conception through development, pitching and creation right to delivery. I work closely with clients, understanding quickly what they require and adding my own value to produce content for broadcast and use online that has personality and a good amount of fun. In this position I have worked very closely with BBC Learning on projects that have given me a lot of creative freedom and allowed my to develop. During my time at Tracks and Layers I believe I played a large part in taking the company from a small disorganised studio to a much bigger and creative studio with multiple employees. I believe that my creativity, character animation and general motion graphic skills have developed tremendously in this position and I am ready to take on more responsibility in a larger organisation.
