Jimmy Herbert   set designer / illustrator  A minimalist at heart, Jimmy finds himself most at peace walking through the forest, completely surrounded by nature. It is from his time spent in nature that he draws inspiration for the sets he designs and creates. His  model making and design  skills were developed from an early age and refined through his time spent as an architectural designer.  He has since transitioned these skills across to designing / drafting sets and crafting scenery. He has a very fine eye for detail and is passionate about imbuing as much of the natural world into everything he creates. His creations help to drive the story telling through a rich selection of textures, colours and shapes that the animators can truly bring to life. He loves working with natural materials that have been sourced ethically and minimise wastage.  His strengths lie in Model Making, Illustrator and 3D Modelling  @huskyjimmy
