Douglas Martini
Liverpool, United Kingdom

I'm a full-time sound effect designer and illustrator. I have been working professionally since 2017. I can design, replicate and produce almost any sound you can think of in and out of this world. Any kind of sound, from special effects to MIDI samples, just request and I'll do the job excellently! I can also bring life into your motion graphic projects by mixing background music for you. For illustration, I love minimalistic and elegant style since I believe that complex problems can be solved using simple solutions. I mainly do logo and album's cover designing since most of my clients are musicians and they need their album cover to be designed. I have just finished Birmingham City University's Visual Effect - Computer Animation course. You can see one of my personal projects in the Examples section.

I was born in Bloemfontein and moved around a lot as a kid due to my dad's work we moved to Durban for 10 years and I got a brother when I was 5 years old, we then moved to Gauteng Pretoria where we have lived for 15 years so far. In 2009 I went to do some graphic design certificates at open window and I fell in love with design from there, before I didn't know really how to express my creativity beyond painting and my piano. I matriculated in 2008 from J.O.Y academy and then took a gap year, and I worked as a sales rep for the year but left the job because it was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and that's when I found inscape design college where I studied graphic design and art history however because I didn't do art in school (because there was no option to) I had to do a foundation year which I felt wasn't a good thing for me and soon found out that it wasn't the right direction for me. I then went back to sales for a year where I worked long hours till 12 at night even though I enjoyed it I knew there was better things for me that's when I applied for open window and the animation school in Cape Town in 2012 I got into both, but I decided that animation is what I wanted to do as I felt that it was the best way to express my creative mind, however life happens and I failed that as well due to windows and Mac not being so compatible at that stage and I had my appendix taken out and while in the hospital and in bed for two weeks I had missed so much and couldn't catch up which was the worst thing I was so disappointed in myself because I gave it my all. I was ready to give up, but then in 2013 May my parents told me I should go to a psychologist who deals with job placement and what you should be doing for the rest of your life to best suit you. So with his guidance I found Rosebank College in 2014 I registered for a Multimedia Diploma that they offer and I completed it in 2016 and graduated in 2017, I loved the course and I was asked in my final year if I would come teach/tutor the third years 3D animation as when I was in my third year I taught my classmates how to do 3D animation. So I came back in 2017 and became a tutor, however before I went there I looked for a job at a studio but South Africa being how it is with the lack of jobs or the fact that everyone wants designers to have 2-5 years of experience in order to get a job which I don't understand how are you supposed to get that experience if everywhere you look just wants people with that already meaning that it would be imposable for you to get that experience. So that is when I went to Rosebank and got the tutoring job I started in May 2017 and worked there helping the first, second and third year students with whatever they needed. That's when I released that I enjoy helping people. Now my contract with them is finished and I am looking for something where I can help people and design.

How To Hire An Animator

To get started, choose what kind of animation you need for your project.

For example:

  • 2D animation
  • 3D animation
  • Stop motion animation
  • Custom cartoon animation
  • Motion graphics

Once you’ve chosen your style, it’s time to move on to the shortlisting process:

How To Shortlist An Animator

Shortlisting an animator can seem like a time-consuming task.

We’ve made it easy for you.

Here’s a quick overview of how to find an animator on Twine:

  1. Post up a job
  2. Wait for animation specialists to pitch to you
  3. Review your pitches and choose a candidate
  4. Agree your terms
  5. Voila!

Tips For Writing Your Job Description

Here’s an interesting statistic:

75% of the pitches for jobs online are from freelancers who are not qualified to do the work

Why?

Because the description doesn't clearly explain what the client wants, so freelancers pitch in hoping that the work might match their skill set.

On Twine, we manually vet all the pitches that a client receives to make sure you don’t have to spend hours filtering out unqualified freelancers.

But it’s still really important to make your brief stand out by being clear and concise.

Clearly-written job briefs allow animation experts to quickly scan your requirements and determine if they’re a good fit for your project before getting in touch.

When writing the animator’s job description, make sure to include the following:

  • Who you are
  • What you need (and why)
  • The size of your project
  • Your vision for the project
  • Examples of styles you like
  • Target audience
  • Budget
  • Deadline

How Much Does It Cost To Hire An Animator?

Animation rates vary significantly from project-to-project.

When negotiating a freelance animator’s hourly or day rate, you’ll be sent a quote based on the length of time the animation will take to produce.

Using the data from our network of professional freelance animators, here are the ranges you can expect for a day’s work (7-8 hours):

Animator LevelJuniorMid-LevelExpert
Day Rate$150-250$250-500$500-1000

Here are the price ranges in GBP:

Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire an animator?

Here’s the deal:

With a market value of over 259 billion U.S. dollars, animation remains as one of the most popular and engaging mediums for connecting with an audience.

Since the industry’s inception with cartoon studios in the early 1900’s, animation is now at the core of many different sectors, including:

  • Web Design
  • Video Games
  • Marketing & Advertising
  • Social Media Content
  • Film

Although what animators do day-to-day has changed a lot over the last century, the impact of what animation can do for your business has not.

Don’t believe us? Read this stat:

Each day, 100 million internet users watch an online animated video.

And not only that! One minute of video is equal to 1.8 million words.

It’s no surprise then that 76% of marketers plan to increase their use of YouTube and video marketing next year.

How can animated video benefit my business?

Here’s another statistic:

Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video, compared to 10% when reading it as text.

If you aren’t already using video as a core aspect of your marketing strategy, you should be!

But why animated video?

Here are the three main advantages of using animated video over traditional video content:

  • Stand out from your competitors

    Animation is friendly, futuristic and forward-thinking, setting you apart from the pack of talking head videos your competitors are using.

  • Keep it simple

    Animation turns complex ideas into an engaging narrative, making it easy for leads to understand how your product or service works.

  • Improve your SEO

    Google loves animated video due to its high-retention rate and evergreen nature. A high-quality animated video can significantly improve your presence on Google, making it easier for leads to find you.

What are the benefits of hiring a freelance animator?

Here are some of the biggest benefits of choosing a freelance animator through Twine over an animators agency:

  • Lower overhead costs

    This includes office space, company benefits, employee training and set working hours.

  • Experience

    Many professional animators will hone their craft at an animation studio before going it alone as a freelancer. This means that freelance animators are often the most experienced, efficient and professional specialists in the game.

  • Expertise

    If you’ve been wondering where to find animators that specialize in a particular niche of animation, the freelance market is for you! Freelance animators often dedicate themselves to particular animation commissions (such as explainer videos).

  • Flexibility

    Hiring an animation freelancer allows you to set your own hours and rates relative to the nature of your project. You can assign them work as and when it suits you without the hassle of a long-term contract.

What are you waiting for?

Post a job on Twine now and be matched with a wide range of high quality animators in a matter of hours. If you’ve got any questions then you can ask online animators and they’ll be happy to help you via the public questions feature.
