Daniella is an illustrator, animator and designer living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. As a creative, her work is rooted in storytelling, bringing narrative to life through illustration and animation. And as a producer, Daniella enjoys working with a team to manage and oversee commercial projects.
From an early age Daniella could be found lost in a sketchbook, cranking out characters and comics. As a child she was influenced in equal parts by Neverending Story-era fantasy and the twisted humor of Ren & Stimpy. Through comics and cartoons, Daniella discovered a love of animation and storytelling.
Daniella moved to New York to study Traditional Animation at Pratt Institute. Her thesis film, "Oral Report", was showcased at a variety of film festivals including: Reel 13, Animation Block Party, and NYC Short Film Festival.
Upon graduating in 2009, Daniella explored a range of commercial work in New York, including production management, and is now the visual facilitator for Thought Catalog. Today her talents include graphic design for marketing campaigns, creative treatments, illustration and design work for internal and external projects, and post-production supervision. Recent work includes Relax Already & Get Sexy: An Adult Coloring Book of Real Dirty Dreams, and Earth Angels, a web comic about aliens.
