About

Jorn Jilesen is a digital media designer based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He's specialized in adding motion to brand identities. In an era where identities are mainly displayed on screens, static is no longer an option.

He is fond of making complex, graphic animations. Both using keyframes and snippets of code to connect different parameters and effects. He is also very interested in - and getting into - creative coding.

Jorn is one half of motion identity studio Jilesenkeizer.
