Bryn Desmond-Jones is a creative director specialising in animation, motion graphics, character design and illustration

Sydney Opera House


While at Studio Hackett, I led our team to produce 3 animated video profiles to initiate audiences with the international guest speakers for the Sydney Opera House’s festival of ideas, Antidote.

Antidote is an annual event that celebrates ideas, action and change. It’s comprised of workshops, talks, cultural events and immersive experience within the historic Opera House and invites leading thinkers to consider the big issues facing humanity, and possible solutions.

The team and I worked to create and design the suite of animations. I illustrated DeRay McKesson, and rigged all 3 characters for animation. The animations were designed to work on a number of formats allowing them to be viewed across a number of platforms.
