Velocity is growing! We are so excited to introduce you to our new Creative Director! Seth Wiley is originally from Lafayette, Louisiana and grew up with southern and traditional values. His parents always allowed him to express himself through art and told him he could be whatever he wanted to be. They encouraged his love for art and music, so the creative juices were flowing at a very young age.
Seth attended college at ULL and majored in Visual Arts where he became classically trained in painting, drawing, animation and other media. After college, Seth worked at Vidox Image and Data in Lafayette primarily as an animator but was known as a jack of all trades. He then stopped doing animation and went to work for Baker Hughes creating interactive CD-ROMs.
In search of bigger opportunities and a change of scenery, Seth moved to Los Angeles and worked at Brainforest doing animatics for some of the larger industries in the United States. In the 16 years that he has been working in the industry, he has worked with a wide range of clients from tech companies to design studios. This has helped him gain valuable experience with motion graphics and video production while developing animatics, commercials, and video presentations.
Louisiana started to call Seth home. While he was in California, he spent most of his vacation time coming back to see his family. After doing freelance work on his own, Seth started his search to become a part of a team again. Now working for Velocity Agency, he is part of a collaborative team and utilizes his creative talents overseeing our creative department.
Outside of work, Seth loves playing with his dachshund Dewey, woodworking, painting, and cooking. Here at Velocity, we are so happy to have such a hard-working, creative, and ambitious new member of our team. Help us in welcoming Seth Wiley to the company!
