    "Brian and his team were exceptional. Had them create and edit videos for 26 lead generation projects in 15 different markets across the US. Excellent turnaround time and communication. Will definitely use again in the future." - Dave M. "Brian was a pleasure to work with. Once the project was outlined, he took a proactive role in the design and execution. He completed the contract well before the deadline and with minimal revisions. We will be working with him again." "Brian had an unbelievable work ethic. He was consistent, had great energy, and was very responsive. His editing skills were above what I expected and bent over backward to get the job done. I would definitely recommend him." Website: fanimations.co I will make your videos stand out. In the age where the internet world is everything, Your production needs to be impressive. Your videos are an essential part of building an online presence. On most websites, videos are the first thing seen. A video that captures the attention of the viewer is essential. How are we going to accomplish this? I start by defining exactly what YOU want. What expectations and hopes do you have for your project? Discussing the process of what your expectations are as well as hopes for footage to be edited is gospel. You are in need of an editor that will understand your vision and translate it into reality. You have much footage that needs to be chopped down and structured into a cohesive storyline. Whether that be a documentary piece or simply an instructional video. I have four years of Videography and video editing experience. What started as a hobby grew into me working abroad and doing marketing for an organization based out of Glasgow, UK. Aside from my work abroad, I have been working for small businesses and adding value to their business through video editing. I am excited to work with you.

    I have a Master degree in animation from the Academy of Fine Arts of Zagreb (Europe) and more than 10 years of work experience in the field of animation. See more of my works on instagram @antemuralis_pekmez😊 You can get video game assets and animations, character design, music viedeo, logo design, stroyboard, animatic, commercial, explainer, festival animation, documentary, pretty much anything that needs movement :P This is what I can do for you: 1. Briefing: You tell me ‘hey Marta I would like a logo animation, an intro/outro, gif, explainer, whiteboard, stop-motion, music/lyric video, app web animation, game animation or asset, character design, background, book trailer, commercial, documentary, comic, etc.,… 2. Preparing the elements for the animation: I see your references, what style you like and provide everything that is needed for the animation. Model lists, turnaround of the characters (if needed we design them), height comparison charts, palette, backgrounds, assets, brush charts and so on. 3. Storyboard and animatic This usually goes for longer animations. I plan each scene of the animation as a comic book - the camera angle is set for each cut and a description is given to what does happen. Then each scene from the storyboard is timed. We exactly see how many seconds each cut takes. It's the first preview of the animation flow. We can already see if some scenes may need to change order, look longer, shorter, switch order, add or delete, because many times when something looks good as a static drawing it does not look good in a scene sequence. 4. Animation: key poses, phasing, clean – up and colouring After we're set on each scene I proceed to draw the key poses of every movement in each scene. Drawings are added in-between the key poses to crate smooth movements. Each drawing is cleaned and made as the final version. I colour each drawing. About me: I’m communicative, positive, hard working, passionate about animations, look up to Disney and Ghibli, would like to open my own animation studio. I hope to have a relaxed, fun and open minded atmosphere where you feel free to suggest ideas and enjoy your working time with me. My experience is that in such an environment the best creativity flows out. My work experience: I've studied animation for 5 years at the Academy of Fine Arts of Zagreb and have a Master degree in animation. I have more than 10 years of work experience in the field of animation. I've worked for 6 years at the HRT (the main television house of my country) on various shows providing regular monthly animated content. Outside of that regular job I made animations for many different institutions (universities, conferences etc.), had art exhibitions, performances and installations. For the past 2 years I've started freelancing thus entering the gaming industry (see sofl game on insta as ex.), doing commercials for different brands and ordinations, videos for different purposes (explainer, book trailer, theatre play, history museum shorts), app animation, logo design and animation, character design and animation, storyboarding and animatic, e - mail signatures, intro and outros, comics, costume design,... with people all around the world (US, Australia, Canada, Israel,...). I specialise in traditional animation or classical animation, cel animation, hand-drawn animation, also known as 2D animation: is an animation technique in which each frame is drawn by hand. I also do stop – motion, whiteboard, video editing, illustration, character design, storyboarding, rotoscoping, adding animation to already existing footage. My main programs are Procreate, Photoshop, Premiere and Soundbooh. Feel free to contact me and ask questions, wish you a lovely day M. A. Marta J.

2D Animators Hiring FAQs

What is a 2D animator?

A 2D animator is responsible for creating flat images and bringing them to life using software such as Unity 2D, OpenToonz, and Pencil2D. Their animations and images are used to depict stories and create games and other forms of interactive media. 

How do you hire a 2D animator?

You can source 2D animators on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a 2D animator.
  • Post it on Upwork. Once you’ve written a project description, post it to Upwork. Simply follow the prompts to help you input the information you collected to scope out your project.
  • Shortlist and interview 2D animators. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, your project description is where you will determine your scope of work and the specific type of 2D animator you need to complete your project. 

How much does it cost to hire a 2D animator?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced 2D animator may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their 2D animation services more competitively. 

Rates typically charged by 2D animators on Upwork are:

  • Beginner: $20 per hour
  • Intermediate: $36 per hour
  • Advanced: $70 per hour

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project. 

How do you write a 2D animator job post?

Your job post is your chance to describe your project scope, budget, and talent needs. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

Job post title

Create a simple title that describes exactly what you’re looking for. The idea is to target the keywords that your ideal candidate is likely to type into a job search bar to find your project. Here are some sample 2D animator job post titles:

  • Animator needed to create images for an upcoming infomercial
  • Freelance animator needed to create characters for a sustainability video game 
  • Artist specializing in 2D animation needed for educational project

Project description

An effective 2D animator job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From creating character sketches to developing 5-minute educational videos, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain genres, software, or composition styles, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

2D animator job responsibilities

Here are some examples of 2D animator job responsibilities:

  • Conceptualize and design animation using a variety of 2D animation software 
  • Assist multiple internal clients with their creative vision
