My name is Cristian, I am Graphic Designer and Animation Director born in Santiago de Chile and currently based in Berlin.
I studied graphic design in Chile, and I also have a master’s degree in information design and data visualisation from the Ellisava University in Barcelona.
I developed most of my career working as freelance designer and compositor in After Effects and Cinema 4D. I was engaged into multiple motion graphics projects, in different formats and with several brands. Among others, I worked for agencies such as M-Box, Pixomondo, OmStudios, Schokolade and Licht Gestalten, all of them based in Berlin.
Furthermore, I have been developing my own animation projects as designer, animator and director. Among my independent works I count short-films “Missing”, music videos “Idiot”, and explain videos like”Mercedes of Service” for companies and differents organisations.
Along the creative process for animation, I like to focus on the storyboard development. I transfer clients’ inputs into a proper graphic language, adapting aesthetics and animations in order to facilitate communication of contents.
Throughout my work experience, I mastered the capacity to develop an animation project from the script to the final delivery. I usually coordinate the whole process in collaboration with other professionals such as designers, illustrators, animators and musicians.
My works were published in specialized magazines such as Computer Arts, IdN as well as in Die Gestalten book “Latino Gráfico”. Some of my projects have been exhibited in different animation and short-film festivals around the world. My short-film “Missing” won the first prize 2012 in the Mo&Friese children’s film festival in Hamburg. It also won the second prize in Going Underground Berlin Festival and it was included in several dvds, such as the Chilean “Proyecto Monocycle” from Chilemonos foundation and in 2012 “German Short Films” DVD/catalogue.
