Freelance Motion Designer


I have always been creative, but I have not always been a designer. In an ambitious move, I took what was a hobby and turned it into a successful career in design. I worked hard for many hours alongside my former career as I transitioned career paths and followed my passion for creativity. I first started freelancing in 2004 under the pseudonym AtomGFX. In 2006, I took a major step forward as I left my former career and became a designer full-time. I went on to attend University(see below) and continued to work freelance to support my studying. As a freelancer I gained valuable experience in many disciplines; working for TV and post-production companies, digital solutions, computer game developers, and various branding and design agencies.


University of Glamorgan, Wales

To excel as a creative, I attended the Cardiff School of Creative Industries (Wales). Here, I learnt about motion design principles, image manipulation, vfx, motion-tracking, video editing, production, project management, art theory and critical studies. Whilst at University I sharpened my skills to become a master of After Effects and 3DS Max. I also took a strong interest in creative psychology and marketing. My dissertation "A Deadly Weapon; the Art of Persuasion" focused on the government agencies who used art as a tool of mass persuasion to help sell the war efforts of the early 20th century.


Creativity without design is just art, and art alone does not sell a product.

My creative objective as a designer is to inject personality into brands and products in original, entertaining and engaging ways. Whilst embracing creative flare, it is paramount to stay true to the marketing motivation behind each campaign.

For creativity to be put to work, it has to be appropriately shaped and directed. By using showmanship to instill desire into the consumer, we can communicate an effective solution to the audience. The product advertised becomes the product they want and a return on investment can follow.
