Mixed Media motion graphic designer

Hi there! My name is Yana and I am a freelance motion graphic designer and animator based in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I specialize in creating dynamic, visually-stunning animations using a range of techniques and styles.

In addition to my work, I am also an avid fan of indie rock music and the Early Netherlandish painting school. I draw inspiration from the creative energy of both mediums and strive to bring that same level of innovation and expression to my animations.

One of my biggest passions is working with collage and mixed media animation. For me, this approach is not just about combining different images and videos together, but rather using a variety of techniques and approaches to achieve a unique and captivating end result. Whether it's drawing frame-by-frame, modeling objects in 3D, scanning real-world objects, or adding stop motion transitions, I believe there are no limits to the tools and techniques that can be used to bring animation to life.

"We have requested Yana to prepare an animated video explainer for our startup project. She delivered a turn-key product, which we all were very happy with. With practically no input from our side she was able to come up with original idea, as well neat implementation of it. The animation, music, even text and voice acting - was all handled by her in a very swift and professional manner. We highly recommend Yana for her ideas and design/animation skills!"

"I have known and worked with Yana for last three months working on Etisalat by e& Beach Canteen and I am very pleased with the service and work done. During the scope of the project, Yana demonstrated a good work ethic and successfully completed the project within the agreed upon time. She even went beyond the scope and delivered additional urgent requirements in multiple languages. She also helped us in Russian translation. I can also happily say that the work not only met my expectations, it exceeded them."
