My name is Courtney and I put things in motion.

I am a New York-based Art Director, Motion Graphics Designer and Storyteller. Working for publications like Cosmopolitan, Glamour and The Scene I have dedicated my work to documenting the female perspective.
Within my current role as Art Director of Video for Condé Nast’s The Scene, I’ve worked to establish the brand’s video aesthetic. From animated logos, titles, end cards and kinetic type to full-length animated pieces, I have continued to set a new standard for video.
Before coming to The Scene, I was the Motion Graphics Designer for Coming into the role in June 2015, I completely rebranded their video graphics and elevated their video presence. I illustrated and animated Cosmo’s first animation, which reached over 1 million views. In addition to animation, I produced, shot, edited, stitched and added graphics to Hearst’s first-ever 360° video.
