Hi, I'm Rob Barrett

Freelance motion designer, animator and technical director based in Berlin, Germany, specialising in 2D After Effects work.

I’m available for explainer videos, social media content and motion branding, and technical projects requiring motion graphics templates, data-driven animation and expression-driven rigs.

I also create After Effects scripts and tools, and work as a teaching assistant for School of Motion.

Let’s create something together!

Just drop me an email, and we can arrange a time to chat:


Listen up folks, if you're in dire need of a 2D motion designer who is not only a delight to work with but also a true pro at After Effects, then Rob is your guy!

He's got some real skills when it comes to scripting, and his project files are so clean, you could eat off of them. I mean, seriously, his project files are really organized. It's like he's the Marie Kondo of motion design or something. But in all seriousness, Rob is an absolute joy to work with. He's friendly, professional and if you want your next motion design project to be a smash hit, I suggest you give Rob a call!

Rob is a consummate professional, able to deliver on time and to brief every time but with a creative energy and flair that would elevate even the most mundane of jobs to something more.

During his time freelancing for us, [Rob] successfully completed a plethora of projects with a high level of quality and which showcased his deep understanding of the impact of design in performance marketing.

Furthermore, Rob has a keen sensibility to brand requirements and could easily adapt his designs to meet those needs. This also saved time with feedback rounds and allowed us to focus more on the things that would have the highest impact on performance.

[Rob] immediately added value, working on some challenging projects with very tight deadlines and, rather than just providing what was initially asked for, he designed some great conceptual work still on brand but thinking about the bigger picture, therefore delivering a much better solution to the client.

He questions the brief, thinks for himself and looks at what might work better.
