My time at Lancaster University draws to a close.

On the 22nd June 2010 : I received the results of my four year degree. I am absolutely delighted to reveal: I achieved a first class Msci degree in I.T & Media Communications and as an added bonus I have also been nominated by the board of examiners to receive the IEEE Prize for outstanding performance on my final year project. I really couldn’t have asked for a better end to my academic career!

I would like to thank all the staff from the department of communication systems at Lancaster University for making my time on the course so enjoyable, in particular Paul Coulton (a.k.a @MysticMobile) & Phil Benachour - two inspirational and outstanding lecturers in the department.

Of course University life involves more than just the academic side of things, I would like to thank all the people I met along the way & the countless new friends I made - obviously without all of you University wouldn’t be anywhere near as fun, I will thank you all elsewhere but for now I will just say thank you!

Thank you to Lancaster University as a whole too, the collegiate system really does wonders for students when they first arrive, I still remember being welcomed into the open arms of Pendle College on new arrivals day and from there I never really looked back!

And so, as my student life (and this ‘Oscar acceptance speech’-esque post) draw to a close; I am looking to the future and what the coming years hold: I recently accepted a job offer from FreshNetworks and will be making the big move down to London in the coming months to what will hopefully be another great adventure!

In the meantime: someone put the kettle on I think I am going to have a well earned rest!

(P.S: I should know more about the award within the month and will update this post with any developments.)

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
