My name is Christian Prieto and I’m a freelance motion graphics designer located in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I graduated with a second BFA in New Media from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and have also taken courses at School of Motion. I’ve had some great experiences from various amazing internships, and currently work in the field as a motion graphics designer. I thoroughly enjoy riding motorcycles, watching movies and reciting arbitrary quotes from various films and TV shows. I someday hope to work with studios such as Ranger & Fox, Buck, Brand New School, Blind, Yankee Peddler and Capacity.
