Meet Daniel Petrino, our newest designer and animator! Read on to learn a little bit about him.
WHO ARE YOU?
Well I’m an illustrator, motion graphics artist, and a native Arkansan. I love Italian food and working with my hands.
WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND?
I fell in love with digital art when I was a young kid. Spent many late nights painting in Microsoft Paint, and designing houses on The Sims. From there I was convinced as a teen, that I was going to design motorcycles for a living. I drew flames on everything. It wasn’t until college that I realized how much i loved motion graphics. I am an Illustrator at heart, but the idea of bringing drawings and sketches to life with motion excited me. After I graduated from Samford University in 2013, with a graphic design degree, I moved to good ole Nashville.
Quickly after moving to Nashville, I was on the hunt to find a job. I spent some time researching this city, and was really attracted to work that Fivestone produced. The work just seemed really alive, exciting, and new.
WHY DO WHAT YOU DO?
I do what I do because I love it. Every day. Its not a job. What I do day in and day out, is also what I do for recreation. I am very blessed to be able to enjoy and be satisfied with my work. The creative environment, intense workflow, and constant learning are what make this job so great.
