Hi! My name is Leonario Fernandes.
A motion graphic designer who loves to design, animate and travel.

When I was 6 years old, I saw “Who framed Roger Rabbit”. Since then I’ve been smitten with animation. My passion for all things animation continues to grow from illustration to multi-screen presentations, to broadcast design and pretty much everything in between.

I have more than a decade of industry experience and although classically trained as a print designer, I now animate and design exclusively.

I live in London, UK and freelance as a creative motion designer for various design studios, advertising agencies, production companies, and direct-to-client. Take a look at my extensive portfolio to see what I’m capable of!
