Motion design is a relatively new field, and, as such, there aren’t many artists working in it yet. Unfortunately, that means that those who are interested in entering the industry don’t always know where to begin or how to embark on their career journey. With that in mind, I thought I’d share my own story of how I came to be a motion designer so that other artists can take inspiration and encouragement from my journey.
From childhood, I have always had an interest in the art world, spending time messing around with digital imaging software instead of completing my homework! From those early days, I took the decision to go to art school and selected motion graphics as the focus of my study.
After spending time travelling, I began working with an artist while taking a boot camp at the School of Motion, and a few years later, I launched CopyCat. I’m now working with a number of clients across different industries while also helping to raise awareness of the exciting new field of motion graphics design through this website.

Discover the story of how I entered the world of motion design.

Knowing how other artists entered their field can help those who are keen to enter the industry to see a way forward and explore their own potential in becoming motion designers. This is my story of how I came to be a motion designer.
