About

DSC_0281 @1000.png

         Elcy Rizk is a Lebanese Graphic Designer and Animator who graduated from the American University of Beirut with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2012. Her time in AUB allowed her to experiment in different design fields leading her to develop a passion for the digital world and all of its applications: Illustration, Animation, Photography, Filmmaking and Interactive Media. Her Final Year Project involved the research and design of a Video Game that would effectively encourage young girls' interests in mathematics and technology. After getting enough experience in the field, she took her education a step further and pursued her Master's degree in Computer Animation and Visual Effects at the University of Bradford in 2015, where she learnt 3D Animation, Stereoscopy, Motion Capture, and Visual Effects and graduated with a Distinction. For her Final Project, she sought to find visual effects and film editing techniques that would pose no harm to photosensitive epileptic patients while staying visually appealing and emotionally engaging.

         With her attention to details, her work is carefully crafted through a process of researching, brainstorming and sketching. The method, she uses, to combine custom-made graphics with computer-generated ones, makes each piece of her work unique. She also likes to integrate, in her work, bold messages that can speak directly to the viewer, just as much as she enjoys bringing fantastical creatures and surreal effects to life, on screen.

         She is always up-to-date with the latest artistic trends and technologies, an event that she finds most pleasantly challenging. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Audition, Autodesk Maya, Cinema 4D and NukeX are the computer tools she can't live without.

         In her free time, she likes to doodle, create fantasy artwork, and read about social psychology, science and technology. She also enjoys immersing herself in new worlds by watching science-fiction and adventure movies or playing adventure- and strategy-based video games.
