Northforge has hired freelance animator, Matt Taylor, after being impressed by his work on Instagram.
The Leeds animation and motion design studio has recently undergone a period of rapid growth.
“Bringing Matt into Northforge was a no brainer, we’ve been long admirers of each others work, so it always felt it was a matter of time before we worked together, but it’s fantastic to actually see it happen,” said Northforge Managing Director Matt Simpson.
“Over the last few years, we’ve seen a huge amount of growth, not only in sales performance but also in the type of projects we’re getting involved with. We’re looking forward to seeing what Matt can add to the team, as it really sets us up for an exciting time ahead.
Taylor has amassed more than 20.3k followers on Instagram by posting 3D animations and tutorials.
“The staff at Northforge are among the most talented individuals I’ve ever met. So it wasn’t a difficult decision to join the team. I hope that my style and approach helps to build upon their reputation. In a world where every agency is seemingly being asked to re-imagine old work, I believe that the Northforge team can break new ground for others to follow,” he said.
