Hey, I'm Nage! :)
[pronounced like words mage, sage or page]
I was 7 years old when I met my best friend shertso. Back then we already loved stories. The unreal stories, the fantasy, the science fiction. The dream world. An escape from reality into an adventure. We wanted to become writers. Book authors.
Now, many years later, we are still in the dream world. But we are not writing stories any more. (Because we're too lazy. Or too busy?) The world forced us to grow up (but we haven't!), get a job and become part of the working society (boo!). The childhood is gone. Or is it? I'm holding onto it with my teeth and claws, while using the grown-up's knowledge to become better at what I love. Art and design.
I finished BA (Hons) Graphic Design at Middlesex University, London in 2018 and in the last year there realised that I loved design that moves. Later I got a job where I photograph, create social media posts and design brochures and marketing material. Since I crave to learn more, I enrolled in the School of Motion course Animation Bootcamp and started animating in 2D in January 2020. I already had some experience in After Effects and Cinema 4D but oh boy! This course is AMAZING and SUPER HARD. Now, as I'm becoming better at animation, I am looking for new opportunities to create designs that I can move. Since I try to network more, you can also find me 'lurking' at those Motion Design meetups in London here and there.
