Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by. My name is Bukela Campbell also known as Bela and I’m a freelance motion designer, art director and illustrator currently based in Frankfurt, Germany. I work collaboratively — and often remotely — with advertising agencies, design studios, directors and various other clients.

I studied Media Design in the University of Applied Science in Nuremberg, where I fell in love with animation. After graduating I moved to Frankfurt and started working as an Art Director in 2007. Drawing, painting, my camera and learning new things is part of my life and gives me always new impulses.

Since 2015 I’m a part-time lecturer for motion design and animation at the University of Applied Science for Media Design in Nuremberg.

I’m always happy to hear about new projects! I love it when people have great ideas to work on, so if you have something in mind, get in touch. If you would like to know more about me, drop me a line e.mail
