About


Yours truely.

Hi, my name is Thomas Donaldson, but most people just call me Tom.

I am an experienced 2D + 3D motion graphics designer. Art is my passion and I’m always up for a creative challenge. Ever since I was little I have been doodling and daydreaming. I’m always seeking a project to challenge my creativity. While Interning at Daily Planet Ltd. during my Junior year, I fell in love with motion graphics and the artistic atmosphere of a post-production house. Since then I haven’t stopped creating motion graphics. I graduated from DePaul University in 2009 with a Bachelors of Arts in Animation. I have professional experience with a wide range of industry standard programs and plug-ins. Throughout my career, I have had valuable opportunities to participate in the entire production process, from start to finish. I know the intricacies involved in producing a creative and unique project, how to engage the client to better actualize their vision and that teamwork is key. I am also constantly learning and exploring new tools and techniques. Since motion graphics is ever-changing, so must I. I am a part of Motion Graphics groups and communities. I watch NAB and SIGGRAPH presentations and attend Half Rez every year. I am dedicated to my craft and have a finger on the pulse of the industry. In my free time, I enjoy freehand/computer drawing, 3d printing, video games, vinyl collector and fine art.

My main goal: make it look sexy.
