Art & Design Intro

This page is dedicated to projects where I was the lead designer/Art Director. There are a number of projects in the past where I fulfilled this role but, for brevity’s sake, I chose three to represent my skills. Depending on a project’s requirements, examples may include: concept, lay out, character and prop design, and finished/rendered art.

Project: the Burren GEO Park

Project Brief:

We were contacted by the Burren GEO Park UNESCO to create a small series of informational animated shorts. Instead of the dry textbook style illustrations, the client wanted a more contemporary look. Cloth textures were combined for colour and patterns, making up the rendered final.

Project: The Mooneys - New Year's Day

Project Brief:

This began as a primetime TV series development project which  has progressed into a Sci-Fi holiday-themed feature film. The characters and pitch pack had to be revised for the longer form story. I am now testing whether the project will work in a 3D design.

Project: The Wee Littles

Project Brief:

This was a very ambitious project in many ways but particularly in design. What began in concept as a stop motion series transitioned into a digital version of stop-motion we called “Sim-Stop”. To realise the realistic look the project demanded, 3D assets were introduced. Before anything was sculpted by hand or digitally, it had to be Pre-Visualised first as 2D sketches and layout.
