DAD - 3D CREATIVE - OCCASIONAL INDYCAR DESIGNER
3D Modelling and Animation.
Concept Design and development
High-level visual communication skills using 3D animation.
Post Production and Editing
I am a 3D Artist and Designer with 20+ years of experience spanning multiple industry sectors, from styling award-winning racing cars to visualising the latest ground-breaking neurological treatments through animation. I love working with both industry titans and start-up innovators alike.
My background in product design and 3D animation, combined with high-level design consideration and a "can-do" attitude, help push the boundaries and impact of any assignment. I have also done my fair share of Creative Direction, guiding teams of creatives, engineers and developers, sometimes a mixture of all three, and I'm also comfortable presenting at the highest level.
Every day's a school day, continually learning about clients' innovative products, ideas and the environments in which they operate. I spend half my time working out how to make things work and the other half on how my clients make their stuff work. And then how to communicate that to a particular audience!
I specialise in product and scientific explainer animations for innovation and manufacturing companies through medical and Pharmaceutical scientific demonstrations showing the latest cancer treatment. I enjoy animating both huge vehicles right down to the inner space of human biology and physics.
I am always excited to team with passionate people and learn about their projects and world-changing ideas to explore creative collaboration opportunities. I am happy to operate as a lone wolf or run with the pack depending on a client's requirements, and I have a complete home studio for remote or hybrid working, and I'm used to working internationally. I am available for both direct client projects and freelance work.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and please do get in touch for a quote, hire me, or discuss a partnership.
I look forward to hearing from you!
