Roger Williams


Motion Designer & VJ

With more than a decade as an illustrator, Roger Williams' passion for creating motion graphics and performing live visuals, is fuelled by his love for design and his unique connection to music. As an illustrator, his work has been recognized by top global advertising festivals such as Cannes, One Show and D&AD ( in addition to picking up a Gold Loerie and a couple of Silver Eagles on the way ). As a visual artist, he has exhibited his work in Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and South Africa.

Rog's VJ / live visual performance work has seen him perform alongside hip hop legends Prophets of da City at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, as well as adding digital artistic soul to corporate events such as the launch of the Opel Adam in South Africa at the Opel / Lisof Fashion Collab.

When not manipulating pixels with After Effects, Photoshop & Illustrator, he's most likely crafting his martial art skills, which have taken him to Europe, Russia and Japan as a South African Karate Champion.
