About

The One Man Motion Design Army.

Timothy
Mercenary

The multidisciplinary creative studio of Timothy Wagenar.

With a focus on concept, story, design and animation I work on visual stories for Brands and Agencies. I use design and strategic thinking to help a business engage and captivate their audience.

As a motion director, I like to experiment with a wide variety of techniques such as 2D and 3D animation, Stop Motion, Traditional Media, CGI, Set Design and everything in between. Mixing analogue with digital and letting all this melt together into unique and contrasting pieces of work, illustration and films full of character.

Specialized in design and animation with a focus on aesthetic value and the visual story, I take care of the entire production in a process-oriented manner with a workflow that is scalable and tailor-made.

Bringing stories and creative ideas to life is what it is all about, taking people onto a journey into a world of imagery and compelling stories.

History

Timothy Mercenary was founded in 2009. Back then with a focus on motion design and live VJ performance. It was a business of day and night. At night, under the alter ego Freddie Breamer and together with fellow creatives, I developed party and entertainment concepts and performed as a VJ artist at live events.
The daytime business was reserved for commercial projects, where I eagerly took advantage of the experiences from the night. A unique mix of analog and digital with traditional and modern techniques. It’s two worlds with a common denominator; concept, story, audience and animation.

A development of over 12 years with a broad experience in creating stories, how to appeal to an audience and visual experiment. This, in combination with today’s focus on aesthetic values and the visual story, lays a solid foundation for a creative environment of effective communication.
