    Hi, my name’s Steve, I’m a South African motion designer with an extensive history working within advertising agencies and studios. I have a very deep knowledge of Adobe After Effects and building automation tools for video. I’m a digital native with a love for art, animation, graphic design, sound design and creative programming. I spent a lot of my youth making small games and coded visual experiments, while studying multimedia design and creative communications I discovery the power of After Effects and 3D animation software and saw how it blended so much of what I really enjoy into one, that’s when I knew I wanted to be a motion designer. I’ve had the privilege of being able to work along side some great teams of creatives in advertising agencies around Cape Town and have worked on loads of really interesting and challenging projects for some great brands, some of these challenges drove me into the technical aspects of video production where I’ve found a passion for automation and tool development within the animation field. I love solving problems and yearn for creative challenges. I studied a Bachelor of Arts in creative brand communications specializing in multimedia design where I won several awards, as well as being nominated for student of the year at the annual Adfocus awards in South Africa.

    I’ve always been a firm believer in having a go-to guy. I’ve been using the same electrician for years for that reason. I applied that same logic and spent the last decade learning as much as possible about audio/visual production. I can run full video productions from start to finish or step into any phase of the process and elevate a project to the professional level. My services include: Scripting, Shot-listing and Pre-Production Videography Video Editing and Colour Grading Motion Graphics and VFX Voice Over Audio Post Production and Mastering Basically all of those obnoxious titles mean you can hand me an entire project and I will make sure you get a polished, professional product :)

    Hello! I work with Blender, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Animate, After Effects, Inkscape, Krita and a few other software's. My focus is blending 3D and 2D to create interesting motion graphics and animation! I love to try out and learn new things! My first job as an artist was at 16, to create presentation models for architects, developers and later on the film industry. This gave me insight into 3D softwares and working with architectual plans to build models to scale by hand. All the while I was learning 3D animation and digital art in my free time. Now I have been freelancing in animation and digital design and had a great time doing it! To support my animation skills I have experience and training as an actor and voice actor. I also attend castings for adverts and film from time to time. Speak to me and let’s get designing and animating today! Thank you for your time.
