Hi there! I’m Michael Jakob, a freelance Motion Designer from Germany currently living in Beijing, China. Check out my portfolio

I’ve been working as a Motion Designer in the advertising industry for 8 years and counting. Over the past 4 years, I’ve produced state-of-the-art content for premium brands at international car shows (when I wasn’t driving through the Australian Outback in my ’95 Mitsubishi Pajero).

I’m originally from Freiburg, Germany, the gorgeous capital of the Black Forest. These days you can find me in thrilling Beijing, China. My motion design skills are definitely still better than my Mandarin though. 加油!

I excel in conceptual thinking and handling data for massive, multi-LED-screen setups while working under tremendous time pressure. I’m a team player who pays attention to detail and keeps the big picture in mind at the same time. I take an organised, structured approach to work, which is how I keep tens of thousands of files in order for any given project. But don’t just take my word for it — have a look at my portfolio!

I also moonlight in photography with my Fujifilm XT-2. Framing and composition is very important to me, even when I’m snapping a shot of a parking ticket with my phone ?
