About Nalena

Nalena Kumar

From my home studio in San Diego, California – I’ve spent years making my animation services accessible and exciting for the designers, brand strategists, production companies, agencies, and brands I work with.

My journey has led me to work on projects for Disney, Cartier, Sun Bum, and BuzzFeed, and taught me the power of storytelling. These varied experiences now fuel my mission: to simplify animated content for you. I combine art, narrative, and strategy to not just animate, but to truly connect and engage with your audience.

Want to see your ideas in motion? Let’s talk about crafting original animations that elevate your brand. Schedule a quick call with me, and let’s create something memorable together.
