Motion Graphics Inspiration: Show Reel by Matt Saunders

Based in England, Matt Saunders‘ strong illustration skills are evident in his motion graphics reel, below. As a freelance director, animator, editor and illustrator, Saunders has worked with clients like Atlantic Records, the Leeds Film Festival, Anorak Magazine, and Juxtapoz. Saunders has incorporated his unique, monstrous characters in music videos, magazine covers and even wall murals, applying his line drawings and paper cut-out style to each project.

In an interview with Motion Design Love, Saunders shares advice with aspiring motion graphics artists, stating “make friends with late nights, learn typography, learn the history of animation and understand how the industry works.”
