Profile-pic-AboutPage

My name is Jason Roberts and I’m a freelance animator, illustrator, and designer with a degree in Animation Arts. I live in London, and can work in house or remotely.

I specialise in 2D animation and illustration, working mostly as an After Effects animator, motion graphics artist, and character designer. I’m very much an all rounder, with light skills in 3D animation, design, web design, print design, HTML and CSS. I’m an expert in the Adobe Creative Suite, particularly After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.


So what do I do?

→ 2D animation

→ Motion graphics and explainers

→ Illustration and design

→ TV and outdoor advertising

→ Character & background design

→ Compositing

→ Storyboarding

→ HTML & CSS


I have a passion for innovative design and all things creative. I’m honest, friendly, professional, and organised and I work well in a team, on my own and have a good eye for detail. My aim is always to do the best work possible which in my experience not only means hard work but also working smart with good planning.

I have strong design and layout skills and have been involved with projects throughout all stages of production, providing me with a broad understanding and knowledge in; planning, storyboarding, designing, rendering, file formats, and all sorts. I’ve got plenty of experience visualising ideas for the screen for world renowned clients such as BBC, Philips and TED and I’m constantly stretching the creative muscles of my brain.

With this experience, I have gained a great understanding in how organisation is key, especially when it comes to animation and hitting aggressive deadlines, and that communicating ideas effectively within a team and also to the client is so so important.
