About me
Experienced Motion Graphics Designer who has worked on a variety of different projects with many different clients. Working with a multitude of clients has allowed me to gather a vast amount of experience in different design disciplines enabling me to create a diverse portfolio. Some of the skills I have developed while working in the industry include: 2D animation, Basic Cinema 4D, visual effects, typography and illustration. Each project I have worked on has required different skills and forced me to grow and learn as a designer. I ensure I am able to adapt to the work environment of each brief by staying on top of design trends, updates within software packages and plugins. During my time working in the design industry, I’ve experienced working alone, with teams and alongside clients from different disciplines. As a result of this I am comfortable in my ability to make autonomous design decisions, effectively work/communicate with my team and pitch ideas. The environment I work in has allowed me to learn how to give and receive constructive criticism. I believe these skills are key to succeeding in the creative industry and hope to contribute my skill set to your company.
  • Wraith County (Instagram Advertisement)
    Wraith County (Instagram Advertisement)Wraith County is an up & coming underground clothing brand based in the UK. They approached me to create a looping animation out of some illustrations that they had commisioned. This was to be used as paid advertisements for their new clothing line.
  • TNN (The Noise Narrative) Social Assets
    TNN (The Noise Narrative) Social AssetsThe Noise Narrative is an underground music platform that launched in July 2020. They commisioned me to work on their branding (logos, colours, font and style guides). To celebrate the launch of TNN they asked me to create these social assets for their instagram story & feed. It was important that the design created worked in both feed (4-5) and story (9-16) formats.
  • Nike London - Air Max Instagram Story
    Nike London - Air Max Instagram StoryI worked directly with the Nike London team to create a stylised 2D motion graphic for their Instagram story. The turn around time for this was one day. In order to meet that deadline and the client's required standard, I used 2D illustrations to emulate a 3D model of the shoe. This enabled me to create their desired outcome without investing many hours into creating a 3D model of the shoe.
  • Ziezie - Gazi (Lyric Video)
    Ziezie - Gazi (Lyric Video)Here is a lyric video I created for ZieZie that was commissioned by Sony Music UK. I used Adobe After Effects & Illustrator to create this Motion Graphic. The turn around time for this project was two weeks. In order to work around this deadline, I worked directly with the client to create something that was close to a more 3D stylised look they envisioned without having to build 3D elements.
  • LeftWing Kody - Stage Visualizers
    LeftWing Kody - Stage VisualizersThese stage visuals were produced for a Leftwing Kody’s (Lost Records) tour. These graphics were created to be played on large LED screens behind them as they performed their songs. They provided me with some brand guidelines (colours and style), but gave majority of the creative control/ art direction to me. It was a pleasure to work with Lost Records to create these visualizers.
  • Stihl Advert
    Stihl AdvertI worked on this TV advertisement for STIHL UK as a freelancer working for Compost Creative. This project was completed by a team of three. My job on this project was to Rotoscope the leaves, Colour grade the footage and 3D track and insert the flowers into the scene.

    London, United Kingdom
    University was an opportunity to further the skills I had developed in college, while also learning how to make my designs animate! During my time at Ravensbourne I had access to industry standard tools, the guidance of my lecturers and the Ravensborune Agency. The Ravensbourne Agency gave me access to a wide variety of potential clients. This, paired with plenty of free time to experiment with different design techniques and skills let me take on various extra projects and get paid whilst doing so. On top of the university agency work, this course also included live briefs. Attending university allowed me to gain more experience designing for clients whilst also developing my skills further.
