James Curran is a London-based animation director and designer who understands a thing or two about self promotion. He believes self-initiated work isn’t just great for building brand awareness; it’s also a fantastic way to keep your career fun and interesting, as well as develop new skills. In April he spent a month in Tokyo, then unbelievably animated a new gif every day for 30 days inspired by something that happened during his stay. It’s so lovely!
