Sarah Beth Morgan is an animation director and illustrator based in Portland, OR. Her work to date is a mix of textural musings, graphic explorations, whimsical characters, and a firm yet fluid ability to weave it all together with conceptual narrative storytelling.
At the forefront of her work is a reverence for narrative-first storytelling and a gravitation toward myriad execution. In other words, it’s impossible to pigeonhole Sarah Beth’s style into one neatly definable package and improbable that she’d want you to try. “Variety” is a preeminent tenant of both her work and her working ethos.
Sarah Beth grew up in the magical, far-away Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where she was deprived of bacon and cable television—but granted a unique and broad perspective. After studying motion graphics at the Savannah College of Art and Design, she worked in Los Angeles for 2.5 years, then in Portland for two. She's worked with clients such as Chipotle, Ecobee, Capital One, and Google on commercial animation + illustration.
Visually, Sarah Beth strives to create anything that has a textural, playful, quirky quality to it. But above all else, she loves the 'people' component of storytelling. "Conceptual, narrative storytelling is so important to me," she says. "My goal is to connect with people - not just to create something visually appealing."
It's safe to say Sarah Beth consistently achieves both—her work is deeply resonant, highly emotive, and downright beautiful.
