About


Hi! I am Vera, Hackney, London based digital designer, motion designer, animator and illustrator. I am currently available for freelance, full time and part-time employment and chats about animation.

My visual style is vibrant, bright, eclectic and often is a hybrid of 3D, 2D elements and still images. The recent work has a narrative aspect that takes the shape of animated documentary, reportage animation.

I am fascinated by animation, by the power it has, by the creation of mini-worlds, mini-narratives, believable and not so, but still highly inspiring. I guess the fascination has its root in a nostalgia of Soviet animated films, puppet animation. I also believe anything is possible in an animated and motion graphics world!

I love to collaborate with other talented people and I am always looking for an opportunity to work with a creative team.
