John Alistair Perriam
Graphic Designer - Video Editor & Animator

About Me

I am a London born, British-Irish UK ROI flags combined native English-speaking graphic designer, video editor & animator now based in Cornwall, UK. I do practically all work remotely, and have worked with businesses & agencies worldwide, both freelance and in-house, from regions including the UK, USA, Spain & Africa, providing a reliable service for clients requiring regular & repeat work.

With an original background working for printers & advertising agencies I since moved into animation, video and motion graphics to provide professional multimedia design work for business advertising and social media. Now with the incorporation of AI generated images and video.

When not working I like keeping fit with mountain-biking & martial arts (if not sparring at my age), hobby photography, reading, history & science. I also follow Formula One and the American NFL. Although now UK based, I lived & worked in Spain for many years and can speak, read & write Spanish and still like taking breaks & holidays there.
