Yap, that’s me! Looking at the sea during a pandemic.

I’m Nuno Leites, a Portuguese person who’s also a Motion Designer working remotely from home to wherever needed. With about 10 years of experience in the motion industry, I’ve been creating with brands, agencies, and studios across the globe.

In 2018, I started freelancing and, since then, been focused on creating compelling and well-crafted motion for graphic design, branding, and typography-driven projects.
