Turner Gillespie is an animator living and working in Baltimore, Maryland USA.  He communicates ideas and tells stories through motion graphics by bridging the gap between 2D and 3D techniques.  Turner specializes in creating clean, effective design with elements of the human touchβ€”bringing personality to the images he constructs.   His goal is to generate thoughtful, provoking visuals and storylines to create a link to the viewer that comes with an emotional impact they remember.   He received his BFA in animation with a concentration in graphic design from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and has studied internationally with the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) in Bournemouth, UK.
