I run a boutique animation & design studio – MAAN CREATIVE – with fellow conspirator, Johan Scheepers, in the creative hub that is the c/o 4th & 7th in Linden, Johannesburg. We are always on the lookout for a good story to tell and always pushing the artistic envelope of the animation we work on.
I come from a background in broadcast design, studying Information Design at the University of Pretoria before starting out working on promos and channel branding at StudioZoo for DStv in Johannesburg.
I spent some time as a Digital Designer in London at various agencies, most notably Holst Digital, before returning to Johannesburg to freelance as an After Effects specialist and animation director. I have since worked on a wide range of projects from TV show and channel branding through to 2D character animation, theatre shows and museum installations.
I enjoy work with a more tactile, hand-made aesthetic and jump at the opportunity to use stop-motion, 2D characters and frame-by-frame animation.
Please do get in touch if you think I can be of any assistance to you.
