Yu Xiao – Designer

Hey there, I'm Xiao, a Motion Designer and Illustrator since 2010. I specialize in motion, flat design, hand draw, digital painting...


I am Xiao, Illustrator and formerly freelance Motion - Illustration Designer since 2014, based in Gif-sur-Yvette, France.

Today, in order to fully dedicate myself to my passion - illustration, I am looking for freelance projects in this field.

In my drawings I enjoy capturing beautiful moments, linked with nature, animals and pop culture, always accompanied by a bit of dream and magic. I appreciate lines and shapes, and I also like to study color and light.

Eight years of experience as a Motion - Illustration Designer have given me the ability to translate text into images, to be able to work with different clients, teams and projects in various fields.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your projects. I would be delighted to accompany you throughout your creative journey.
