Enquiries : contact@willbakerarts.com I produce 2D cartoon illustration and animation design, working on projects through pre-production to final cut. I am a well adaptive designer, experienced in character development, flash design, cartoon illustration, After Effects, and sound engineering. I have produced designs for mobile and web platforms since 2008, I understand the technical specifications and industry requirements to produce professional and high quality design. My work has been showcased at large commercial functions as part of large accounts, I understand the necessities of delivering professional design at all times and I would not release anything that I felt fell short of this. I am proficient with the Adobe Creative Suite, in particular Flash and After Effects and I have experience with Toom Boom, Soundbooth, Maya and Wordpress. Please contact me for a design proposal and a competitive price for your project. About me // I graduated in Animation Arts from the Plymouth College of Art and Design in 2008, receiving the highest marks from the course. In 2010 I moved to Bristol to work as a digital designer after a year working as a marketing creative in Plymouth. My position as a digital designer was for a small agency that specialised in 3D projection mapping. Our clients required corporate marketing strategies for large exhibitions and advertisements, this position required creative idea development and strong characteristics to complete projects in a high paced environment and to a high standard. Daily jobs would be the preparation of motion graphics, rendering, computer mapping and graphic design. In 2011 I began working on a children's brand called 'Sports Heroes', producing online and offline design to support the companies accelerating growth. I have held this position since, overseeing the production of our pilot cartoon episode and a further 30 more episodes of e-learning animations. As our sole designer, I am responsible for all artistic content that is associated with our brand. I regularly liaise with our managing director to discuss ongoing projects and new ones. I am responsible for the pre production planning that takes place, whether that be storyboards, layout files or character design, I am experienced and confident enough to do this before having to execute the project in a professional and timed manner. As the sole designer I have to maintain a positive approach and a dedicated mentality to ensure the company meets deadlines and continues to move forward. I have managed many different projects from start to finish, in animation, web design, print & illustration, and gaming. Outside of work I am part of a small team of designers from other studios in Bristol who work on imaginative productions. We all feel this is a good way to gain new perspectives on design and idea development as well as keeping up to date with digital trends and social media. I have demonstrated my abilities in design through agency and freelance positions. I am a confident designer, a regular Freelanced user and a reliable and trusted designer. I have recently relocated to Australia, covering both Melbourne & Sydney. Thank you for your consideration. Please take the time to view my online portfolio at www.willbakerarts.com

I am creative by nature. Inspired by elements of transcendentalism, zen, and native studies my work embodies the simplicity and power of the natural environment. Words are my revelry. Poetry, short creative bits, and scathing prose amuse me. I am also proficient at writing informative more journalistic pieces with light research when the subject matter is of interest. I also love to write stories for children. As for painting, watercolor is my medium and my work is light, abstract, and simple. I prefer commission work and am available for consultation with individuals and businesses interested in developing a natural marketing image.

My name is Zachary Ingwaldson. Recently, I returned to the Roseville/Rocklin area after 10 years of traveling throughout North America. I was born and raised in Oakland, CA, but have since lived in multiple destinations ranging from Arizona, South Carolina, and Alaska, among others. The traveling experience and the Military allowed me to encounter numerous cultures and appreciate their variety and value, including my own. I am a Business Finance major, avid researcher, reader, and writer. I have contributed in creative development for various magazines, small businesses, and law firms. I have had the honor and pleasure to work on fighter jets, create and perform with talented musicians, and participate as a board member for a nonprofit organization; however, my most valued, foremost endeavor, and treasure is raising my three children. I love the experience of life as well as learning and unfolding the experiences of others. Life is about evolving, not revolving. I look forward to working with you in a professional and creative manner.
