I studied Graphic Design at UWE from 2010 until 2013. I am now working as Lead Motion designer at Studio Moross in London.
Long before I started Uni I did some work experience in Bristol with Aardman (I think I was about 14?) so I always had an interest in animation, and I had always had in my head I wanted to study in Bristol. I went on to Study Graphic Design at UWE in 2010, and in second year spent one semester studying in the animation department, where I learned some very basic After Effects, and the basic process and principles of animation. I then continued the rest of my time in Graphics so my overall skillset was Graphic Design with a bit of animation. It was during Second and Third year that I worked closely with Brisfest, a local music organisation working on the design of those festival campaigns which gave me my first taste of working as a professional designer. I graduated from UWE in 2013.
After University, I did a short stint at Bristol based studio The Group of Seven: https://thegroupofseven.co.uk/ I was then approached by Television Production studio Burrel Durrant Hifle (https://www.bdh.net/) where I began working in late summer 2013. This was an amazing opportunity, as for some reason they gave me a chance even though I barely knew what I was doing. It was a great company to work for and I learned so much during my time there. I worked on various video projects for the BBC, C4, National Geographic, BT, Discovery etc etc… I loved it.
In 2016, I moved from Bristol to London, and began working as a motion designer at Studio Moross. Here I continued to work on some broadcast projects for MTV, but also moved into the world of music videos, and live music and television. In late 2017 I became Lead Motion Designer, and we have since continued to work on a variety of music based projects. In my time at the studio, we have worked on projects with MTV, Disclosure, Sam Smith, Parklife festival, Nickelodeon, Uniqlo and plenty of others.
