Hi there! I’m a freelance animator and an adjunct professor of animation at St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley. I have extensive experience in the Adobe creative suite, particularly with After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. I'm always looking for opportunities to put my animation and design skills to the test. Whether you're looking for a full time motion designer or just need someone for a single project I'd be happy to hear from you!
Branding for Gerry's Lawn Care Service
This week I did brand identity for a lawn care company. I designed a logo, business card, letterhead, etc.
* The "recent work" section has kind of become my catch-all. Anything I work on goes there first. My intention is to sort it onto a proper portfolio... at some point.
