Hey there, I’m Earl Aspiras, and this is Philler Works.

I’m a motion designer based in Toronto with 6+ years of experience in motion graphics, animation, videography, and illustration. I graduated from the York University-Sheridan College Graphic Design program with a Bachelor of Design Honours Degree, and currently working as a freelancer for hire.

Growing up, I spent too much time doodling maps & drawing comics, watching TV & movies, and surfing the early internet. These days I’m sketching ideas on paper, picking apart VFX & animations, and finding inspiration from anything that moves on screen. Some of my biggest inspirations are Olly Moss, Paula Scher, Magritte, and the folks at Art of the Title.

If you need a designer for your motion graphic project, or if you just want to talk about title sequences and maps, get in touch!
