Freelance motion designer & animator.

I've created for

Hey! I'm Ben

I'm a freelance motion designer and animator based in Birmingham, UK. I create short audiovisual experiences that demand attention. Crafting powerful motion graphics that deliver your message with energy and emotion. I work with future thinkers. People who know a brand is more than just a few colours and a typeface. People who want to push the limit and smash their goals.

Design isn't always about the visual effects. It's about how well it does its job. Together we can set the objective, share ideas and create a graphic design video that performs. Don't follow the crowd for the sake of it. Be brave. Follow our own voices and start creating something that truly reflects that passion and emotion. Being brave doesn't mean we can forget about the purpose of the video. We need to stay focused on the goal. It's typically about having to search for the balance between getting attention and getting engagement.

Motion graphics can be used by brands to bring a project to life. By using illustration skills and motion techniques, I can make your story come alive. Using a freelancer and a passionate motion designer like myself rather than agencies will give you complete flexibility and keep costs down whilst still getting high quality video and animation.

As a motion design artist based in Birmingham, UK, I have developed a portfolio of artwork for several different styles of marketing campaigns, social media projects and explainer videos for multiple businesses and brands in the UK and worldwide. The work I specialize in is using 2D animation and illustrator to deliver your message and smash your marketing and business goals.
