Originally from Woking, Adam Harding Willis completed his bachelor's degree in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins in London, specialising in animation. He continued playing with characters and keyframes as a motion graphic designer at a B2B marketing agency, growing his skills in long-form animations. After some time however, he felt God leading him to use his creative skills to advance God's kingdom and love his neighbours in the world, by partnering with organisations and nonprofits.
"I remember emailing many different charities, churches and nonprofits, hoping to make some connections. My big break didn’t happen until I sent an email offering my animation services to my friend Edward who worked at the Christian charity Tearfund. His response was disbelief— 'Why are you pretending like you haven’t seen the job posting I just released? I know this is the real reason why you’ve got in touch!' It seemed God’s timing was perfect. This part-time position at Tearfund gave me the flexibility to start my own business and I haven’t looked back since. God continues to provide."
Adam currently lives in Reading, UK with his wife Hope their little boy Oakley. Adam loves a bit of cycling, camping, evangelism and dark chocolate. Whether you are just dipping your toe into animation, or a bit of an expert, Adam would love to hear from you.
