mograph mel

a 3d motion graphics design & AnIMATION studio

MoGraph Mel is the creative studio of Denver based director, designer, and animator Melanie Aratani.

I specialize in 3D motion graphics, design, and illustration for video content. This is a one-stop shop, capable of everything in your animated video project from script to final render, so whether you’re experienced in this process or know nothing about animation at all, MoGraph Mel can help!

I’ve worked on so many great projects, from broadcast motion graphics for Starz, to patient education explainer videos for DaVita. Each project is unique and custom, and I strive to solve a clients needs and give them a video they love in the process. It is my goal to involve my client in every stage of the process, so we’re always on the same page and always moving the project towards the finish line. My hope is that the end result feels like a true collaboration, and that we create something that we both love.

Capabilities include:

Explainer Videos, Educational Videos, Kinetic Typography, Broadcast Graphics, Promos, Infographics, Storyboards, Styleframes, Moodboards, Motion Design, and Animation.

Cinema 4D is where my heart’s at, but I also know my way around 2-D programs like After Effects.

I heart quads, and modeling, and all things 3-D.

But also, I love books, lettering, knitting, puzzles, and other nerd stuff.

Got a story to tell? I’d love to chat and see if I’m the right person for your project, or if I can help you in any way. I love talking about this stuff, so just drop me a line.
