Hey there, my name's Derek Lau and I'm a Sydney-based, freelance designer specializing in animation and motion graphics.
I work on a broad range of animation/motion graphics content for both local and international clients, being fortunate enough to work with a number of fantastic studios and agencies. I'm always happy to switch up my skills to suit the job, whether it be Animation, Art Direction, Illustration or Graphic Design.
Outside of work I enjoy kickboxing, playing video games and looking after my worm farm. (All the worms are named Jim)
I work both in-studio and remotely, so hit me up!
