Quick freelancing update

Following on from my freelance adventure in Berlin I decided to check out Lisbon back at the beginning of May, again taking a week and working from out there while exploring the city.

I decided to repeat what I’d done in Berlin and get an Airbnb, at the very least this could be somewhere to work from, a home office away from home if you will.

Only after I’d booked everything did I discover the surf office - a place where you can live, work, and surf for a short stay out in Lisbon (or Gran Canaria). Although I’d already booked the airbnb, I got chatting to the creator of the surf office on twitter and he invited me to work from the surf office at any time during my stay.

freelancing from the surf office

It really is a great idea, one thing I found working out in Berlin was that I was effectively just doing my own thing, with somewhere like the surf office it’s much more social, more communal, there’s the opportunity to meet like minded people, digital nomads, other freelancers from all over the world.

If you’re looking to do some work in the sun, definitely take a look at the surf office - they even offer retreats for startups! Why not get the whole team down there.

In other news

I’ve updated the portfolio with my most recent motion design work, I’ve been working on a few different projects, some of which I can’t actually share, but I’ve been lucky enough to work on some great motion design projects recently.

Where to next?

I’m off to spend 10 days at the NomadHouse with other freelancers/entrepreneurs/digital nomads exploring Budapest in August. Can’t wait to visit somewhere new!

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!
