Hello, I’m Patrick. I'm an award-winning Motion Designer and Illustrator based in London, UK working across broadcast, sport, music and food industries. Over this time I’ve been weaving sound and motion together in 2D and 3D in to enegetic music videos and working closely with a wide variety of major brands.

Gradually I found total passion for design and animation and now I work full time as a Freelance Motion Designer including working on perma-lance basis with the BBC. My other clients include: Lego, Fox Sports, Chelsea, Gran Turismo, World Rugby, The Daily Mail, Royal Ascot and many more.

I work in 2D and 3D including illustration and 3D modelling. Please take a look at my work for a flavour of the variety of styles I can put together for you.

    If you need anything done visually for your song, Patrick is your guy. He took my album cover and turned it into something that looks like it is straight out of a movie. He is also very kind and very fast with responding. I can’t wait to use the Canvas he made for me! I see myself working with him again very soon.

    Patrick was great! We weren't entirely sure what we wanted so we kind of gave him a bunch of pictures and told him where we were at. We went back and forth figuring out exactly what we wanted, finally landing on a really great product. We are stoked!

    Working with Patrick has been an absolutely amazing experience. I asked him if he could create a Spotify canvas for my upcoming song and he delivered one in such a timely manner. The process was smooth and he has done such a fantastic job with the artwork. I highly recommend Patrick and I’ll definitely be back for more

    Patrick created a canvas for my latest single. I was very happy with his work. He was very responsive and made great suggestions. The quality of the canvas he delivered was very good and exactly how I wanted it to be. I only ask for a few changes (mostly the color of the canvas) which Patrick implemented right away. All in all, I'm very happy with his work and would recommend him.

    Patrick did an excellent job editing an animation into a slick canvas loop. He brought his own creativity into the project, and was very responsive through the revision process, carefully working through the tweaks I requested. I would highly recommend.

    Patrick did an incredible job with his canvas design. Not only was he very responsive and communicative, but was flexible, went the extra mile, and adjusted his work for exactly what I needed. I got what I wanted quickly and efficiently. He took a simple painting and animated it to the next level. I highly recommend hiring him!

    Patrick was great to work with – he took static art images we provided and gave them life with animation that stayed true to their character. Communicative and adaptable to our editing feedback, and worked quick! Would definitely recommend!

    Patrick has a very hands-on approach, getting totally stuck into the creative options. Using these visuals will really elevate my track.

    He was very open-minded and excellent at interpreting my relatively open-ended requests.

    Loved the genuinity Patrick brought to the project and do plan on enlisting his expertise in future projects!

    Paddy was a complete pleasure to deal with. From the initial contact his response was both prompt, professional yet friendly and approachable.

    So much so, the original project was extended further! This additional work was completed much sooner than required, maintaining contact throughout and stamping his own creativity onto the finish product.

    No number of alterations we're too many. For a first-time user of Soundbetter, Paddy's certainly left a very positive user experience.

    Pat has produced multiple short animations for us as a band and small business. His work is always of the highest quality and has an exceptional attention to detail. He's your man if you need quality guaranteed!

    Patrick did a wonderful job on our music video 'Float Away'. He created an amazing style that suited the song to a tee, and created an emotive storyline to boot. For me, the song is now inseparable from the video.

    We were so please we hired Patrick again to make an animated album cover for another single which added a fresh dimension that helped to hold people's attention for facebook ads.

    Patrick animated our EP artwork and did a fantastic job. It Was subtle and tasteful, while at the same time being eye catching. He emphasised the quality of the original art while not drawing focus by overdoing the motion element. Having the animated art gave us loads more options for showcasing the music. Also a great guy to work with and quick turnaround time

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: Self-learning.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
