Colin Hesterly

A California native, Colin has a uniquely keen view of the world around him, inspired by a sense of wonder.

Colin Hesterly is an experienced and talented animated content writer and director. In 2014, he was given the Young Gun title by the Art Directors Club as one of the top 30 artists under 30, which confirmed his place as a rising star in the animation world.

Colin studied printmaking at Colorado University and got hooked on animation after completing a month of coursework. Five of his animated short films have been honoured as Vimeo Staff Picks and he has served as a presenter at the Apple Distinguished Educators Conference. Colin has developed content for companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, Paramount Pictures, Eurotunnel, TomTom, and Skoda.

Focusing on 2D animation and the art of emotionally driven narrative, Colin’s success as an artist and storyteller is demonstrated by a body of work that spans a broad range of creative fields, from TV to film titles, short films and commercials. Publications that have featured his work include Motionographer, Shots, Communication Arts, Shoot Online, Booooooom, LBB and Digital Arts.
