Take home your very own official OIAF 2019 poster, designed by Steve Angel!
Steve developed an early interest in animation while doodling and smushing clay under a Super-8 camera at a kids’ animation class. It remained a hobby until he discovered that being a doctor required dealing with sick people.
After earning degrees at McGill University, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and Parson’s in Manhattan, Steve worked as an illustrator and an art director in Toronto. Next came a three-year teeth-cutting stint at Cuppa Coffee as an animator and principle director. He then co-founded Head Gear Animation in 1997.
Steve has since directed numerous national campaigns in the U.S. and Canada and has worked in Japan, India and the U.K. He has won dozens of top awards at competitions and festivals around the world and has had work inducted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
