Hi, my name is Jake Hawley and I’ve been an animator for nearly 10 years. I’ve worked full time and freelance as a senior motion designer and character animator for creative companies in San Francisco and London.
Creative agencies like EVB, Cobra Creative, MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER and AKQA in San Francisco. Animation and film studios in London include Blue Zoo Animation, Karrot Animation, Jellyfish Pictures and Mosaic Films. I also have my advanced character animation certification from Animation Mentor and I'm still actively involved, volunteering as a mentor assistant.
I've worked with some great people and clients, like The BBC, DHL, Adidas, Nike, Xbox, Adobe, Levi's, Microsoft, Audi, Jordan, Google, Autodesk, Sandisk, Asics, HP, Clif Bar, Anheuser-Busch, History Channel, Target, and YouTube.
I currently live in London with my wife and our two young children. When I do have spare time, I build things in VR, paint outside, and love learning how to make new stuff. I like Star Wars, vintage café motorbikes, and art supplies.
