I'm a motion designer & illustrator
based in Sydney
Hello! I’m Sharne of Sharne's Studio. I’m a freelance Motion Graphics Designer based in Sydney, Australia.
Sharne's Studio is my passion, my creative outlet, and my livelihood. I enjoy telling animated stories for interesting, purpose-driven & creative brands.
I’m passionate about helping tell visual stories that connect and engage with audiences through design, illustration and animation. I adore animation in particular, since there really is no medium that can bend time and space as much as a few smears and keyframes can.
My number one goal is helping my clients reach their animated goals and making their experience stress-free and fun.
I started my design career when I received a half scholarship from Raffles College of Commerce and Design for a Bachelor of Visual Communication. At Raffles, I fell in love with all things film and games design.
After gaining my Bachelor’s degree, I became a trainee designer at Seven Network and spent four years learning animation, compositing and (even more importantly) time management. While I was there I was able to study more about film, in particular set design by earning my Diploma in Screen Design at AFTRS.
Then I went to work at Hank Mango after my time at Seven as I wanted to focus on different aspects of animation (cell, character, kinetic) as well as my illustration skills.
After learning so much at the Mango, I felt confident in stepping out on my own and have been so excited to set up my own freelance business, Sharne’s Studio.
"Sharne was a breeze to work with right from the get-go. She delivers polished and on-brief animations across a wide range of projects and is easy to communicate with. Wouldn't hesitate to work with her again and again."
