The guy.

The individual.

I am Alex Stanlake, a freelance animator and designer based in the charming city of Norwich. I'm at my happiest when I'm creating, making things move, and working with others to make moving things.

I've been producing animation professionally since 2011, coming from a background in illustration and visual communication. I'm a life-long devotee to the combined arts of film, television and video games - each has influenced my visual style and workflow in many ways.

I've been fortunate enough to have had my work displayed in the Tate Britain and at the Cambridge Film Festival. My Final Fantasy VII inspired pixel art animation 'Tifa Embarrasses Barret' for Dorkly.com recently passed 1 million views on Youtube.

The animation.

I'm experienced in many areas of 2D and 3D production and specialise in character animation and motion design.

Animation production is incredibly broad, and I can advise on what your project might require and quote for individual creative elements. I can come on board at any stage of your project - here's a breakdown of animation services I provide:

  • Concept and planning
  • Script consultation
  • Style frames
  • Animatic production
  • Storyboarding
  • Character animation
  • Rigging
  • Motion design
  • Direction
  • Editing

The design.

I am equally at home creating vibrant, elaborate illustrations or clean, modern branding - all of which can fit seamlessly into my animation workflow as required.

As well as knowing my bitmaps from my vectors, I've also found that my experience in branding and marketing usually helps me get the right message across to your audience:

  • Character design
  • Illustration
  • Branding
  • Infographics
  • Artworking
  • Graphic design
  • Digital painting
  • Social media posts
  • Icon design
  • Image manipulation
