Pablo Lozano is a motion designer from Spain, currently living in London, with a mix of fluid animations, 2D style illustration and looping gifs.

(All artists have to answer the same 10 questions.)

1. First and Last Name
Pablo Lozano

2. Where are you from? And where are you currently living?
I’m from Madrid, Spain, but I am currently living and working in London, UK.

3. What’s your main influences?
To be honest I don´t think I have some main influences, but I definitely get inspired a lot by great designers, music and literature, cinematography… any kind of art form has something interesting that can spark new ideas.

4. How was your path until this moment? How did you start?
It probably started in high school, when I tried out a version of 3Ds Max, thinking I wanted to create video games at the time. Since I didn’t know exactly what education to follow to achieve that, I graduated in Visual Communication, and discovered After Effects and Photoshop, which led me to work as a Broadcast Designer in several national TV channels in Spain, for the news, sport transmissions, channel branding, etc.
Even if this was fun to do, it was really fast-paced content and there wasn’t time to do great polished stuff, so I decided to move to Sweden to do the motion graphics course at Hyper Island, and after that I got an internship at Golden Wolf, where I have spent 3 amazing and challenging years, right until this month that I’ve made the move to freelancing.

5. Where do you see yourself next?
Since right now I’m starting my freelance adventure, I hope to work with a lot of people and studios I’ve been wanting to work with for a long time, get to know different ways of doing great work and keep honing my skills!

6. Knowing what you know now, what would be your advice for people in the same area?
Apart from the classic work hard, learn every day from other more experienced designers and practice, practice, practice, I would say to not be afraid of contacting people in the industry to ask questions, advice, to go for a beer… when starting out you might see people and studios in a different level, but the truth is everyone is super nice and friendly, and willing to help.

7. Is there something you are terrible at :)?
Hahaha where to begin? skill wise, drawing hands and feet, and perspective. In real life, sports in general :p and remembering things I need to do 5 min after I thought I should do them (that´s why I love lists and crossing things out of lists

8. Tell us 3 things you like

  • Pizza
  • Cheese
  • Elephants

9. And 3 things you don’t

  • Arrogant people
  • Tofu
  • Spiders

10. Last question, what are you listening at the moment (band, specific music or album)
Just discovered an album by Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau that I keep playing on repeat and noisli.com for focusing.
