Five reasons
I'm a 99% Match
Genres: Motion, code, graphics, animation
1
I am very good at motion design
Currently head of motion at The Guardian. My designs have been viewed more than a billion times, were exhibited at London's Design Museum and have helped win a Webby and two D&ADs.
I have a Masters in Animation from the Royal College of Art and a First Class bachelor's degree in Graphic Design.
As a freelance animation director I created work for Unicef, Manchester United, Imperial College London and many others.
2
I frequently work with interactivity and code
Creating animations for award winning Guardian interactive articles (eg. 1, 2 and 3).

I created an interactive camera that was well reviewed (1, 2 and 3), gained half a million views and healthy view times.
Scripting is part of my After Effects workflow.
3
Every day I collaborate with creatives and makers
Developers, graphic designers, film makers, UX experts, visual journalists, written journalists, art directors, illustrators, motion designers and animators.
4
Taking ideas from loose concepts to shiny outcomes is my bread and butter
Directing filmic animations on essentially zero budget.
One self-produced video at the Guardian has our second highest ever audience retention rate. (I would love to make more but my availability to create them is limited).
Again I did this regularly as a freelance animation director.
5
Effective communication is the goal, but I'll borrow any skill I can to get there
Using UI principles in video; complex compositing in stop motion; publishing my own resources to learn photography; working with VR; screen printing and selling my own prints; using projectors, laser cutting and Arduino in animation.
