Yussef Cole

Heart of Cole

A Bronx, NY native, I've always been surrounded by and in love with visual media. Whether it's film, videogames or comics, I've managed to insert myself into all of these disciplines in one way or another.

I went to Oberlin College for film studies, and graduated with honors in studio art. I then moved to San Francisco and became involved in the motion design field, working at the fledgling cable network, Current TV.

I now live in NYC and have worked in motion design for 10 years, continuing to make unique, colorful and dynamic art come alive on screen.
