About

Hello! My name is Jamal Qutub (He/Him) and I’m a director, designer and animator living and working in Portland, Oregon.

I’m passionate about design. I love to problem solve and collaborate with others, whatever it takes to get to the most impactful creative solution.

I’m currently working full-time at Instrument as Associate Director of Visual Craft where I lead an internal team of designers, motion designers and illustrators. *I’m always looking for motion designers, editors and illustrators there.

On the side, I’m Creative Director at Nimpsy Studio, a minority-owned business, where I design, create, and produce motion graphics for all kinds of screens.

On the edge of the side, I’m the manager of AEPDX, the Adobe After Effects Usergroup here in Portland where I try to get people of all skill levels excited about After Effects, motion graphics, and animation.
