John Peter Meiring is a London-based illustrator and Motion Graphic designer with 12 years experience in the creative industry. Since graduating from Intec College in 2011 I've commissioned and art directed plenty of fantastic projects globally, so I have first hand experience of what clients look for in a freelancer. The best part of being a freelancer is that I get to work on a numerous amount of different projects, ranging from Graphic Design branding to Illustrating Children’s picture books, and of which I also have the skills to rig and animate both of these sets. I am a creative professional with an obsession for design and the skills to deliver a wide range of creative solutions for my clients. My skills involve Graphic Design, Illustration, 2d animation, Motion Graphics, Storyboarding and Film editing.

Hello! I'm a digital animator and illustrator. I typically create 2D motion graphics but also love to create hand drawn animation. I enjoy incorporating my illustration skills into my work, whether it's vector art or fully illustrated pieces. --- **Employment and Project Experience** **Freelance Illustrator & Animator** Girls'​ Game Lab Jul 2019 - Jul 2019 I was asked by Girls' Game Lab to create and animate a logo for them! This project was so much fun to work on, and I'm so pleased that I got to contribute to such a cool organisation. This project took me just over 2 working days to complete. **Freelance Illustrator** The Lygon Arms Hotel Mar 2019 - March 2019 The lovely folks at The Lygon Arms in Broadway approached me to create a summer version of their greetings card. I loved working on this project and with The Lygon and am so pleased with how the piece turned out. This project took me approximately a month to complete. **Freelance Illustrator** The Lygon Arms Hotel Dec 2018 - Dec 2018 I was contacted by The Lygon Arms who asked me to design a Christmas card for them. I completed the design in 2 days and was able to get the cards delivered within 3 days, just before Christmas! Even though I had a tight deadline I was able to complete the project swiftly, and the client was happy with the final product. **Volunteer Animator** Mencap Jul 2018 – Sep 2018 I had the brilliant opportunity of volunteering for a remote position as an animator for Mencap. The brief was to turn complicated information into a clear and easy to follow animation, with a voice over (which was provided by Mencap) whilst keeping the topic lighthearted, so that everyone is able to engage and understand. **Freelance Illustrated Booklet** Client - J. Darlington Mar 2018 – May 2018 I worked on a series of illustrations for a collection of poems called the "Noodle Ballads". Each illustration was created traditionally with a mixture of watercolours, gouache paint and ink/fine liners. **Freelance Illustrator** Broadway Deli Dec 2017 Whilst working on my own Christmas card design I uploaded a work in progress image of it online, which featured the Deli, who then contacted me and asked for me to create a custom version of a Christmas card for them, so that they could sell the cards in their shop! **Freelance Illustrator** Festive Greetings Cards Nov 2017 I created my own design in a vector art style of a snowy cotswold village scene, featuring various shops. I then sold them in quantities of 10 to various customers. **2D Animator Intern** FLOW Creative Sep 2017 – Oct 2017 Manchester, United Kingdom During my internship with Flow, I worked on various projects. Some were client projects others smaller projects that I did for flow. My work varied from designing and prepping assets to animating them in various scenes or to create fully animated videos. --- **Qualifications and Education** BA (Hons) Digital Animation with Illustration at University of Central Lancashire.

About animators

Animation is the process of making single multiple single images and then sequencing them together to create an illusion of movement. Animations can be made up of digital or hand-drawn pictures, clay or rubber models or puppets. A high-quality animation can showcase your product in an original, creative and engaging way - helping to drive your sales and dramatically boost your brand awareness. Search engines also give high priority to video content, so a high quality animated video is far more likely to appear at the top of search results than a text only page. This is why animated explainer videos have become the icing on the cake of any online marketing strategy.

Animators can work in a variety of styles, including 2D animation, 3D model-making animation, stop motion or computer-generated animation. Computer-generated animation has become the most popular type of animation over the last few decades (to create special effects or as a digital animated film in its own right). The type of work animators can be hired for is extremely flexible, from television, commercial content to the computer games industry. Animators tend to use Autodesk and Adobe software suites, as well as Blender and Cinema 4D.

On Twine, you'll find talented professional 2D and 3D animators with a wide variety of experience in a range of industries and mediums. So whether you are developing a professional explainer video or an epic battle in space, you can find animators to bring your concept to life on Twine.
