Sean Starkweather is an LA-based creative director, designer and animator.

Sean developed his voice and approach toward motion design at Art Center College of Design.

After serving as Art Director and Lead Animator at shops like Logan and Blind, Sean founded a design and animation studio called SDF/1 in 2009. At SDF/1 he assembled an amazing team of artists and directed work for Toyota, Yahoo!, Blackberry RIM, Microsoft, Hyundai, US Cellular, and BP.

He later signed on as Creative Director at Stardust, crafting spots for Air Jordan, Samsung, and Starbucks. In 2014, he joined ArsenalCreative, where he helped foster a budding design offering to complement an already well-established Flame finishing and VFX operation.

Sean enjoys the process of making great work as much as the product. Concept, design, edit, animation, sound design — all are playgrounds in which Sean loves to tinker. Please reach out if you’d like to discuss collaborating on your next project.
