Johannes Bastian is …

Befton, Motion- and Graphics Design Artist based in Hamburg, Germany. Currently working at Brand New Media .

Born in Hamburg and grown up in Hannover my creative output ranges from conceptional art (styleframes, storyboarding) to production of 2D and 3D graphical and animation content by using Cinema 4D and Adobe Creative Suite.

Since childhood I always loved creating images by using pencils, charcoal or in later days graffiti. But altogether, my passion is the digital world and its the never ending tube of new impressions, experiments and technical innovations, to generate more and more creative output.

In 2009 I got my bachelors degree by my dissertation about information based motion design in media informatics at university of applied sciences, Hochschule Harz in Wernigerode, Germany.
My first professional experiences I gained at Hamburg based production company Optix Digital. After almost five amazing years at Kochstrasse - Agentur fuer Marken I made the decision to go hundred miles north back to my place of birth Hamburg.

Clients I worked for:
ARD, ZDF, NDR, Sat.1, Brainpool, Sennheiser, Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge, Johnson Controls / VARTA, ExxonMobil, Continental, Bahlsen, Media Markt, FocusTV Reportage, Hamburg1, Optibelt, IdeenExpo, Tetra and others.

So have fun watching my portfolio and feel free to contact me for collaborational stuff and even commercial projects as well.
