My name is Lyon and I’m a motion designer, I bring creative concepts to life through design and animation. I was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, so my background inspires a lot of my work. I’ve been freelancing since I was a young artist back in 2009. Now I run a brand & web design studio by the name of The Bizarre.

The goal of this concept is to translate the energy of motion into static image.
The style is inspired by neon signage, which is attention grabbing and fun, as well as the well-known MTV branding, which is always upbeat, new, and exciting!
