Hey, I’m Ester Dus, currently Director and Motion Designer at Device, a Barcelona-based studio known for its multi-style approach. In my role, I'm responsible for overseeing the creative process and leading our talented teams. Before joining Device, I honed my skills as an Art Director at Rosebud and have continued to expand my expertise as a freelance motion designer.

My personal projects often delve into the duality of fragility and strength through loop animations. I aim to balance simplicity with complexity, and my work in After Effects frequently features handcrafted details that blend the analog with the digital.In my approach to directing, I start with broad concepts and refine them into coherent storyboards. My background in advertising agencies has honed my ability to anticipate client feedback while preserving my creative vision. My career is marked by a dedication to visual storytelling and aesthetic refinement, demonstrating my capacity to respect and enhance the existing design work within a studio environment.
