Hi there! My name is Michelle MacInnis, and I’m a freelance Vancouver art director and senior designer who just recently left a 5-year, full-time position as a designer with Astral Media in Toronto. There I worked with The Family Channel, Disney Jr., Disney XD, HBO Canada, and The Movie Network. Before that I worked at a variety of motion graphics, animation and effects houses in Toronto, including Cuppa Coffee, Headgear, MELD, Trace, IMAX and GVFX. Once upon a time, I was also the in-house graphic designer and illustrator at Chapters Online.


I work primarily in After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Cinema 4D, although I’ve also used Flash, Dreamweaver, Flint/Flame, Shake and Nuke on occasion, as well as Avid, 3D Studio Max and Maya.


I’m interested in a variety of print, web, motion-graphics and effects projects. Over the years I’ve worked on all stages of projects- from conception, to pre-production, to on-set supervision and post-production. I can brainstorm and storyboard, come up with styleframes and design elements, model and animate in 3D, composite, and even project manage.


My home base is now Vancouver, Canada, but I’m open to working remotely.


If you’re interested in working with me, need more info, or just want to say hello, I’d love to hear from you.
