For the third year running, I was asked to create an animated intro for popular YouTuber Meggan Grubb.
This animation was used as an intro to open al her daily vlogs in the lead up to Christmas (2022), a popular social media trend known as 'Vlogmas'.
Illustrated using Procreate on my iPad, then brought to life in Adobe After effects. I used the software 'Trapcode Particular' to animate the butterflies.
TLC -ANIMATED ALPHABET
While working at Discovery, I created this animated alphabet for one of their channels, TLC in its primary brand font.
The TLC network primarily focuses on weddings and celebrations which I incorporated into the theme of the animated letters.
I designed this animated intro for popular YouTuber Meggan Grubb. It was used to open her daily vlogs in the lead up to Christmas (2021), a popular trend known as 'Vlogmas'. She asked for her and her family to be drawn in the old school hand drawn Disney style. In keeping with Disney’s old hand drawn Style, I went super traditional with my animation technique and animated everything frame by frame. I drew and animated all the individual elements on Photoshop and then brought everything into After Effects to layer it all together and add little flourishes like the snowfall.
I created these 4 short animations highlighting some of the embarrassing puberty problems young girls experience.
This animation series was used to help launch Sweaty Betty's new foundation. The Sweaty Betty Foundation’s mission is to empower women and girls from every background to get active, and stay active, for life. Globally, only 15% of teenage girls are doing enough physical activity. The changes to girls’ bodies, and their confidence, caused by puberty is the biggest reason.
Babushka is a short film about a young boy and the homeless woman he passes on the street every day. The story is set in Krakow, Poland, where the inspiration for the narrative took place. I built everything you see in this film from scratch, from the streetlamps right down to the doorknobs. The entire film took me around 3 months to create.
I made this stop motion for my final major project in University. It earned me 2nd place in the "Best Final Project" category at University, as well as winning places at multiple film festivals in 2017.
NAUTILUS FAIR TREATMENT APP
I created the illustrations for Nautilus's new animation highlighting the Union's campaign against the criminalisation of seafarers and underlining the importance of downloading the Nautilus Fair Treatment App.
For this project, I drew each scene on Procreate, then handed all the individual layers to a motion designer at 'CPL' (Cambridge Publishers Ltd) who made them move with Adobe AfterEffects.
I worked for a popular Influencer called Meggan Grubb to create a fun animated intro for her Youtube Channel. I drew cartoon realistic illustrations of her, her husband and her pets and mimicked the rooms of her home so that the video matched the rest of her content. This animation was used to open her daily vlogs in the lead up to Christmas, a popular trend known as 'Vlogmas'.
I created this post to celebrate Environment Day, and raise awareness on the impact that plastic pollution is having on our beautiful planet.
I illustrated everything using a combination of Photoshop and my wacom tablet, then brought it all to life using After Effects.
After graduating, I spent a year working as a motion graphic designer at the Discovery Channel in London. I am so grateful for my time at Discovery as I got to work on many exciting briefs, alongside many talented creative directors and producers.
This showreel features snipets of the best motion graphic pieces I created while working at Discovery.
A typographic animation about the importance of working together to save our planet.
This was one of the first animations I ever created. I made it for a typographic unit in my Motion Graphics degree course.

FAST N LOUD
In collaboration with a Discovery producer, I created animated title boards for a series of social videos to be used on Discovery's Youtube channel. The social promos used footage from past interviews with the Fast 'N' Loud cast, but edited their answers to make it seem as though they were answering different questions, for comical effect.
Fast N' Loud is a reality styled Discovery Channel TV show shot in Dallas, Texas-based Gas Monkey Garage as the crew search for tired and run-down cars, and restore them for profit.
