Meet your teacher
Hi, I'm Cameron
I am an award-winning Creative Director and Motion Designer with over two decades of experience working with some of the biggest brand names in the world.
My work spans multiple disciplines, from film, broadcast and gaming, to virtual reality, live visuals and realtime graphics.
I have had the opportunity to work on a wide array of projects for clients including 343 Industries, ABC Network, American Express, Amstel, Baltimore Ravens, BMW, CMT, CNN, Dell, Disney, Expedia, General Electric, Garmin, Heineken, Kraft, Microsoft, MGM, MTV, National Geographic, NBC, PGA, RCA Records, Sony, Sprint, SyFy, T-Mobile, Toyota, Verizon, Xbox, & WWE, and musical artists Beyonce, Bring Me the Horizon, and Weird Al Yankovic.
I have also had the opportunity to work directly with agencies DDB Chicago and the Publicis Group, and post production studios Brand New School, Digital Kitchen, Hornet, MK12, Prologue Films, Troika, and yU+co.
I am highly proficient in Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Maxon Cinema 4D.
But it wasn't always this way...
When I first began to learn motion design it felt like an uphill struggle.
Here I was - juggling two jobs and raising a family all on my own.
In the little spare time I had left, I would read books about After Effects and try out different techniques, but rarely ended up with any worth exhibiting.
The process of figuring out how things worked in motion design was overwhelming and when I compared my results to the designs I'd seen online, it felt like I was just banging my head against a wall.
The whole thing felt quite discouraging sometimes without having any sort of guidance or criterion for what makes good motion designs.
With no formal guidance, I was determined to learn and excel in motion design.
Armed with some basic knowledge and a lot of dedication, I never gave up.
As a pro motion designer today, looking back at how much I have achieved by teaching myself through self-instruction and self-exploration is truly inspiring!
With the right attitude and commitment, even the most complex of skills can be developed without having to attend traditional art school or invest in expensive courses.

Real talk, my friend
The way I see it, you’ve got 2 choices in front of you today.
You can choose the road of learning motion design through the odd YouTube video, seeing what works, and learning by trial and error.
But what happens down that road?
As someone who’s worked in motion design for a long time, that road is long and winding.
You might be able to create some animations - but it’s not satisfying motion design, because you’re constantly struggling to get great visual results.
And while you won’t give up immediately, you can end up spending hundreds, if not thousands of hours piecing together your education…with mediocre results.
Or you can choose to try out StyleCraft, completely risk free with a 30 day money-back guarantee.
You’ll be handed a step-by-step and easy to digest road map to learn design in motion.
Here's what's waiting for you on the other side:
- Ability to create what you envision
- Strong skills in design and animation
- Beautiful renders that you are proud of
