The Directors

J.P. Rooney

J.P. Rooney

JP Rooney is a Designer/Director who loves mixing styles. For over a decade he’s been obsessing over animation, crafting illustrative work that spans CG, stop motion and traditional hand-drawn cel animation. Regardless of the technique, JP’s work is characterized by bold, crisp, and eye-catching art direction.

JP’s design efforts have produced unique and compelling content for brands that have been recognized with awards from Cannes, Clio, the One Show, Art Directors Club, Giphy Film Festival, and are listed in the MoMA permanent film archive.

Throughout his career, he’s continued to spread his enthusiasm for design and animation by teaching and guest lecturing at the Otis College of Art and Design, SCAD, Pratt, and SVA…and now Brand New School.
