Mats Van Mieghem
I am a freelance motion graphics designer based in Oaxaca, Mexico.
I design 2D and 3D animations for internal communications, social media campaigns and commercials. I make sure I bring your message to the screens of your customers in the most elegant way according to your budget.
The biggest value I add to projects is my eye for detail and pixel-perfect precision, whether it’s an online campaign for a new fashion line or a promo video for your new album.
Clients also highly appreciate my short turnaround time and polished deliverables.
I have six years of international professional experience, across four continents. For two years I worked as a motion designer in a team of creative and art directors at the video production company Sleak in Strasbourg, France. I then started freelance work from Australia, New Zealand, Mexico working for agencies from Vietnam, Belgium and India.
After this trip, I worked as a lead animator at Bluescooter Designs, a graphic design agency in Pune, India, coordinating the production of training material for the Bajaj group.
Thanks to this international experience, I am now fluent in four languages: Dutch (my mother language), English, French and Spanish. However, I still sometimes mix up the Spanish words for “onion” and “hair“(“cebolla” and “cabello”). Nobody is perfect.
Being a polyglot and my outgoing personality are very useful tools when looking for new leads and understanding their needs and to work efficiently and negotiate with the existing ones.
When I am not working on animation projects, it’s very likely you will find me dedicated to my other passions: photography and cooking. If the weather allows it, I’ll go for the occasional run. If not, you will find me in the local dojo practicing taekwondo or kung fu.
I was born and raised in Belgium. After graduating Digital Design and Development from Hogeschool West-Vlaanderen in 2014, I decided to hit the road.
Following 3 months as an intern and another two years as a motion designer at Sleak, I started a 15 month backpacking trip through Southeast Asia, Oceania and North America. MatsnMiles is the chronicle of this voyage.
This trip ended in the city of Pune, India, where I worked as a lead animator at Bluescooter Designs for half a year. After this adventure I flew back to Mexico where I am still asking the local barbers for an onion-cut.
