My name is Richard Sliwinski. I am a motion graphics artist and 2D animator from the outskirts of Philadelphia, PA.

I studied Graphic Design for two years at Bucks County Community College in PA. It was then I seriously became interested in design and digital art. After two years there, I  transferred to Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and received my BFA in Digital Media.

I recently made a big move to Salt Lake City, Utah to work at a marketing agency called  Avalaunch Media as a motion graphics animator. 

In addition to being a digital artist, I’ve also been a musician for twenty years and spent a few of those years playing in punk rock bands as a guitarist. In my free time I enjoy running, painting, hiking and spending time with my wife.
