Darrick Hays

TEAM / Animation

Animation. That’s what Darrick is all about. Still pictures are great, but bringing things to life on screen is his specialty. Darrick came into this world as an art director, but quickly taught himself how to create and animate motion pieces from the ground up. Working primarily in After Effects, he uses his skills and a terrifying attention to detail to push everything he touches to 100% and beyond, creating the awesomest video from even the dullest of information. Over the past few years he’s also taught himself Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition, is currently learning the ins and outs of Cinema 4D, and is an expert with Illustrator and Photoshop.

Darrick graduated Magna cum Laude with a BFA in Graphic Design from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville in 2009. He lives outside St. Louis with his wife/best friend Lauren and their dogs Penny and Poe. He and Lauren are expecting their first child in August 2017.
