I'm Paul aka The Rusted Pixel. I'm a 3D director/designer with strong illustration and motion skills. My work tends to be simplistic but appealing, bold and colourful. In the past two years alone I've worked directly with brands such as Google LA and Google San Francisco, Snap Co., Expeidia and Disney Jr. I've also freelanced for studios such as BUCK, We Are Seventeen, ReMade, Psyop and others.

I see my job as a simple one, to provide my clients with well crafted, premium artwork to help sell their product or service. I've spent many years working in the marketing and advertising space now and I feel I'm able to produce, direct and design work that is concise and has impact. I always strive to retain a charm and simplicity that my work has become known for within the design community.
