Catherine Egan

I'm a freelance Animator & Designer.

introduction

I'm Cat, a 22 year old Mancunian who loves Animation, Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography. When I'm not freelancing, I read, swim, cycle or try to brush up my skills. To see more of my work, just go to my website: catherineegan.co.uk

I am an enthusiastic Animator looking to work in an Agency that can benefit from my motion design abilities, and help me improve my skills. As well as Animation, I have strong interests in Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography. I study these subjects in my spare time to broaden my knowledge and expand my portfolio work. I love collaborating with other creatives and like-minded people on projects. To bounce ideas off others is something I thrive on, however I can work equally as well alone as in a group. I take each brief seriously, and with attention to detail I make sure to see it through to it’s conclusion.
