Celyn started his career as an animator and motion director. After graduating from Central St. Martins Celyn worked on the ground breaking and award winning BBC2 satire Monkey Dust. Celyn created press artwork and directed commercials for Honda as part of the iconic rebranding by Wieden+ Kennedy. His time as an animator has infused his work with dynamism, energy and sharp compositional detail. Celyn's work is diverse and constantly evolving but he always returns to the enthralling craft of hand drawn art on paper. "Sketchbook work, doodles and illustration should never be completely separate pursuits". Celyn strives to capture the freedom of his spontaneous imagination in a seductive clear-line, imbuing his designs with a beautiful flow. Celyn's images are alive with ideas and colour.
Celyn's clients have included Kew Gardens, World Wildlife Fund, MIT, New York Times, Honda, Toyota, Guardian Newspaper, New Yorker, Financial Times, Dow Jones, Fortune Magazine, Waitrose, Le Monde, Adidas, Coca-Cola, British Airways and many more.
