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

I’m passionate about design, 3D, and animation. I love problem-solving and collaborating with others, whatever it takes to arrive at the most impactful solution.

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

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.
