Motion designer / visual artist specialising in parallax animation + video manipulation for your Spotify Canvas needs.
Hi guys, my name is Des - If you have an idea for a Spotify Canvas, I can help you bring it to life! I specialise in parallax animation. This means I can take your existing album artwork / still photos and animate them to have subtle movement in 3D space.
I can also work with your music video or green screen footage - tweaking it to feel trippy, broken, glitchy, or anything else you can think of.
Finally, I also create vibrant trippy loops that can pulse to the music, rotate infinitely or feel like they are always moving through a space.
A great way to start the process is by sending me a reference of another canvas, video or animation that you like, then we can discuss expectations and what's possible.
My current rate is $200 per canvas. Within this price I will make 2 feedback changes for you if desired.
• Discuss idea and approve project
• Design of concept
• Discuss what you like and what you'd like changed
• Design of version 2
• Discuss your feedback again
• Final Canvas Output
A canvas is up to 8 seconds long, but if you would like slightly longer versions for use on other social platforms such as IG, I can adjust the length of animation. These details can be worked out as we finalise an agreement.
Looking forward to meeting and helping some great new artists!

Awesome service and quick turnaround time. Was really happy with the canvas Des made for me. Cheers!
Des did an amazing job with my Canvas, was quick, efficient, has an eye for quality, asked all the right questions and provided a great finished project, not stopping until I was delighted. I will definitely work with him again! HIGHLY recommend!
Des is awesome! He worked with me to adapt my existing album artwork into a beautiful canvas. Incredibly fast turnaround time and communication. Will definitely come back to Des for my next canvas!
Really fast and easy to work with! Highly Recommend!!
Des has made two canvases for me. He is super professional and easy to deal with. I love his artistic choices and couldn't be happier with the canvases he made for me. It helps my tracks stand out, And I’m really proud of how they appear in Spotify. He works quickly and the quality of his work is top notch. I’ll definitely be using him in the future!
