Creative Discomforts

Creative Discomforts is a short animated film packed with insight and inspiration from some of the very best creatives in our industry. Delivered with humility and humour the film sees some of the design industries most courageous characters answer…
“What does Fearless Creativity mean to you?”

A project lovingly created during my time at Taxi Studio, under the role of designer, director and editor.


My hopes for the piece were to instil confidence in those looking to make their mark in the industry, by gaining the perspective of those who have already made a name for themselves. I had the pleasure of interviewing the cast, which gave me an incredible insight into the ways we all negotiate 'fear' as creative individuals. I hope this can now be shared with many.

It has since screened at the D&AD New Blood festival, and been recognised at The Drum Design Awards, winning the Self Promotion category for Taxi Studio in 2019. A sincere thank you to team Taxi, whose creative brilliance, belief and support in the idea made it possible to achieve.
