Elliot Lim

A Northen California-based director who unwittingly set his own career trajectory in Mrs Grandinetti’s third grade classroom.

Elliot Lim is a passionate storyteller with experience creating straightforward and emotionally evocative animation for clients coast-to-coast since 2005.

Drawing dinosaurs on his maths worksheet, a young Elliot Lim wished he could make them run around the page. After a college education in art and design and ten years working in the field of motion design, he can now do exactly that. While his passion for design-based motion doesn’t often require animated dinosaurs, he certainly doesn’t mind including one when it does.

Elliot has crafted multi-disciplinary campaigns for global brands including Ritz Carlton, Coach, Jarritos, MasterCard, Charles Schwab and Verizon. His stunning animated homage to TV series The Wire, a labour of love completed in early 2016, was a Vimeo Staff Pick and gained critical acclaim across numerous publications such as The Guardian, IndieWire, Design Week, Motionographer, Stash and Hypebeast.
