Andrés Jaramillo is a creative director specialising in animation, motion graphics and VFX for commercials and music videos.
Born in Colombia, he completed his undergraduate degree as an international student at the Miami University of Art and Design. Then, thanks to his skill and creativity, an American production company offered him the opportunity to work in Los Angeles on a talent visa. Since then, he’s really made a name for himself.
He opened his own design studio with other creatives providing quality visual content for clients such as Disney, Tinder or Marvel. Recently, he’s also participated in the production of music videos. One of them, "The Hamilton Mixtape: Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)’, won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video with a message.
It was a great pleasure to interview him and find out how he found success in such a competitive market and what he thinks about life as an immigrant.
