Kristian Duffy Illustrator Belfast

Senior Illustrator & Animator

What’s your role?

I am the in-house illustrator for Pale Blue Dot, as well as a collaborative animation and art director. I’m the right-hand-man to the Creative Director.

Outline your experience

In the 3 years since I left university, I’ve gained the experience of about 15. Spending my time in the pockets of industry masters, I’ve learned to absorb and reflect upon their open mistakes and successes. As a freelancer I have worked on television campaigns and children’s animated shorts, as well as illustrating for a number of prestigious award shows and presentations.

What makes you different?

As mentioned earlier, I’ve had a rapid development in my career. This has helped me bring the knowledge of a veteran to a contemporary arena, making my work both unique and comfortably recognisable.

When you’re not at work, where might we find you?

I’d love to say I’d be at a cool bar or doing some extreme activity, but the truth is I’d be at home. Or food-shopping if I’m feeling adventurous.
