INFO

 

Colin is a Sydney-based motion designer - Influenced by film, science, technology, nature, philosophy, minimalism and deep thinking.


 

Spending my formative years in rural Scotland, I was influenced by literature and design books that surrounded my environment, most of which were based on post-modernist principles, architecture, minimalism and 20th century art and design. 

After graduating from University in Glasgow with a BA Honours Degree in Fashion Marketing, I subsequently went on to obtain an MA in Design theory from the University of Leeds before moving to London to finish my higher education by completing a post graduate diploma in Motion Design from The University of the Arts, London (Chelsea School of Art & Design). 

After a few years in-between working at Apple Inc and freelancing in London (during the infamous '08 crash) I decided to move on, and out to Australia where I now work as a freelance designer concentrating mainly in motion design while looking to expand into all realms of visual communication, design and future thinking.

My current vision is to work on projects which are meaningful, progressive and exciting that could activate positive change in the world in whatever way shape or form.

Positive things people have said about me —


Colin has helped us out in our Studio a few times when we have required a great designer with digital expertise to jump in the hot seat and get the job done. I therefore had the opportunity to work with him closely on a few projects and he was excellent - quick, responsive, adaptive, flexible and had some great input and ideas. I’d recommend Colin to anyone whom he is looking to work with - he’s terrific.
— Kylie Green, Managing Director, MKTG Australia at Dentsu Aegis Network
I’ve worked with Colin several times and he is simply one of the best designers I have worked with. He is not only incredibly artistically talented and technically astute, but his ability to translate what you require into a final finished piece of content, quickly and with very few revisions stands him out from the rest.
— Jeff Arnold, Managing Director, GuardLab - Asia Pacific
We brought Colin in to create a motion video presentation to be used as a key sales tool for our biggest trade show in Las Vegas. He was well organised, able to respond quickly to a verbal brief, and created a great result in a very reasonable time frame. We wouldn’t hesitate to get him back in again.
— Sophie Swann, Director, Cygnett (Mobile Technolgy Company)
Colin is a committed individual and dedicated team player. passionate about his profession and works well under direction as well as taking initiative. it was a pleasure to work with him.
— Shane Walter, Creative Director, onedotzero, London
Colin has worked for me on a number of high profile projects. He is always 100% committed to the project and prepared to go the extra mile to ensure both myself and (more importantly) my clients are completely happy. He has good creative ideas and yet is not precious about them which makes for an ideal combination in a client focused industry
— Creative Director, Elbow Productions Ltd, London
