Steve Santer – Digital Art Direction and Motion Design



I am an experienced, hands-on, creative digital art director and motion designer. I’m currently freelancing from my home office in Sydney, and taking on new clients either agency or direct.

I have worked on a number of award winning projects for both online and mobile apps: WilderQuest iPad app winner of 11 AIMIAs, Trocoxil iPad app Bronze Clio, Streets Paddle Pop (online) AIMIA Finalist, just to name a few.

With many years working within agencies from global: G2 / Grey Group, to national; Deepend, to the small: Nomad, Orchard Marketing, and having been a senior creative in these agencies, I have the ability to; work effectively in many team make-ups, to extrapolate and interpret marketing needs and desires for client, brand or service, to become a caretaker of established brands’ digital communications and their guidelines, and ensure work leaving the studio (or my studio) is not only top-notch but also meets all branding requirements and exceeds client expectations.

My design experience covers most industry types from kids’ games and education apps, online and mobile B2B, global FMCG brands, electronics,  pharmaceuticals, mining, and entertainment.

I am currently available for contract work. If you have a project coming up and you need a Digital Art Director, Designer or Motion Graphics Designer get in touch!
