Converse Social Media


Alongside design studio Anyways I created a visual language for the Converse social media channels.

Staff Picks


The title sequence for Staff Picks, a new series on Boiler Room. The series is of short videos where the music programmers at Boiler Room pick out their favourite performances from the archives, so the concept was to make a selection from a series of many different genres and cities that the performances span. Each episode contains different words appearing in the title sequence.

Art Direction: Margot Bowman & Josh Wiley
Design & Animation: Harry Butt

Profiles of Paris


I directed and animated a short animation for the UN with the help of Chen Winner, marking one year since Trump left the Paris Climate Agreement. The animation is a collection of narratives bringing together international leaders and change-makers to offer unique views on how the Paris Agreement was achieved and what lessons can be drawn for the future.
