“Start making things!”


Omaha, NE



Average Work Week

40 - 60 + hours

As a freelance graphic designer and animator, Bryan Findell tells stories for his many clients. That process began for Findell as a teenager when he went from editing videos to making title screens and then full-fledged animations. Findell speaks highly of the mentors who helped him grow during those years: “Mentors and people you look up help you keep moving forward.”

His work with clients typically consists of a couple weeks per project; the work could be on-site or done at home. When he has the freedom to choose, Findell’s favorite place to do pre-production work is his local coffee shop, but he keeps most of the equipment for hard-core animation at home. Hear more about Findell’s freelance life in the video.
