  • First Ward Fundraiser Poster

    First Ward Fundraiser Poster

    Did some charity work with the kid’s education in mind. Made this poster for a punk rock fundraiser event which raises funds for the 1st Ward First Organization. 25% of all proceeds will go to benefit 826 Chicago and The Boring Store in order to support Chicago’s 1st Ward Schools.

    I took multiple photos of the Double Door with my iPhone, and slopped them all together. Craft was not a main issue, considering the theme of the event. Come support, Friday July 12th.

  • Loop


    Been trying to get away from the computer when I’m not working. Made a few primitive rough animations to contrast the work I have been doing professionally. Created my own vintage filter by letting dust gather on the acetate, scratching the surface up a bit, and leaving the tape exposed.

  • allstate – bedtime stories (2)

    During my time freelancing at Imagination Publishing I had the pleasure of making animations for the kids. I worked on a series of fairytales for Allstate Insurance. Each animation is a remix of a traditional fairytale being brought up to the convenience of modern technology. In each case there is an emergency, and an Allstate Agent is called to the rescue.

  • “Smoke Again” – Chance The Rapper, feat. Ab – Soul

    I was given a completed edit, and was told to lay some special effects down. The video was being released to raise hype for Chance’s new album titled Acid Rap. So I got a bit experimental – played with some smoke effects outside of the borders, added some popping textures, some echo trials, and of course kaleidoscopes. I also got weird with some animated face distortions and some cartoon eyes over Chance.

  • Logo Treatment – Treat Yourself

    Logo Treatment – Treat Yourself

    There were two main goals on this project – first, establish an economical solution for all the clients printing needs, and tap into the past. I really wanted to give this project a hands on aged appearance. So application was a big concern of mine. I cut manila tags to a dimension that could be used as business cards or clothing tags. two in one – saving money and time. I got crafty when I remembered that in 3rd grade I aged paper with tea. For this manila paper I used strong coffee. I got my own hemp twine to tie on the tags, and ordered a stamp, adding to it’s aged personality. The stamp also allows the client to implement the design on multiple applications.

  • Faceless

Anthony Esquivel

Hello, I'm a Freelance Motion Designer.
I move design & characters.

I have had the pleasure to work with leading agencies, and with local artists and businesses. My passion for motion design has guided my interests to involve my self in multiple practices. I led an artist collective, which allowed me to gain knowledge in Pre Production (concept, and planning) – to Production (directing, on set post supervisor, and production assistant) – to Post Production (editing, color correction, spfx, titles) I am constantly seeking opportunities in efforts of providing a service, as well as excelling my crafts / capabilities within motion design (direction, design, animation, video).
