Dystopian Science Fiction!

Many years ago tech giants lost control of AI robotic technology. By kidnapping and monitoring newborns, the Ai robots are now trying to master the one thing they have yet to understand… Creativity.

My name is Johan Samuelsson and I’m a Creative Designer at Disney, based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with many different styles and clients such as Netflix, American Express, Microsoft to name a couple.
I specialize in Illustration and Animation (After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema 4D and Premiere)
I grew up in Malmö, Sweden but in 2012 I packed my belongings and moved to San Francisco on an athletic tennis scholarship, and 4 years later graduated from University of San Francisco with a Bachelor degree in Media/Film Studies. In 2016 I enrolled in the one year Motion Creative program at Hyper Island in Stockholm.
