I am Yiannis Philiastides – a professional animator and illustrator creating work in 2D and 3D.

Working freelance remotely from Cyprus or UK, individually or with a team of trusted professionals I aim to deliver the best quality of creative work.With the capacity to take on a complete project (including script, voice over, storyboard, animation, sound design) or take on certain tasks from a larger project (storyboard, animation, design). I have been creating animated video content and artwork since 2010. Through my experience I understand the importance of organisation and planning, and the significance of communicating ideas effectively to the client, but also within a team.

The software I mostly use are Adobe Creative products like Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Premier, and Autodesk Maya, Mudbox and Softimage.

Contact me by email or phone if you have a project in mind or have any other enquiries.
