Caroline Vos

Senior Art Director @ Triggerfish Animation

I am a passionate creative professional. I work hard, I love what I do and I care deeply about my work. I am constantly trying to improve and learn. I am a giver and a sharer within my industry.



Coming from a Visual Development Background and evolving into Art Director has been hugely beneficial for creating inspired and detailed visual guides for my teams' creative vision. I like to dream big and then work my way backwards to find elegant and unique solutions to help the visuals fit within their needs. Brainstorming big ideas in curated spaces is a challenge I am always up for.



As series supervising Art Director on Disney+'s Kizazi Moto - an anthology of 10 short films I have had the good fortune to learn a little about each pipeline ranging from 2d, 3d to hybrid. The studios, based across the globe worked with a range of softwares from Harmony, Unreal Engine to stop Motion. We worked closely with the teams assisting in overseeing the art quality and output.



In addition to supervising art director on the anthology I was art directing on a short film being produced by the amazing team at Portfolio Entertainment for Disney+.



Currently I am senior art director at Triggerfish Animation Studio's.
