Philip in a few words

I was once asked to explain what I do to a five-year-old in as few words as possible!
After 10 minutes of wracking my brain, I came up with the below...

‘I draw cartoons with a computer to help adults sell stuff’

...but for us boring adults I love to help businesses invest in their brand and engage their audience,
stir emotion and inspire action. I want to give motion and animation purpose.

My values are simple, be kind, show empathy and seek out like-minded people to work with.

With over 25 years of experience in print and digital creative, I now work for myself as a motion designer, setting up my own business in October 2016. With a love of motion design matched with my experience in dealing with end-to-end projects I believe I could add real value to both your brand and creative output. Since setting up Spelk Creative I’ve built up a solid base of core clients working with a varied bunch of brands such as The British Red Cross, Manchester City FC, Hermes and Aviva to name a few.
