Hi, my name is Sam Alder, I'm an illustrator, filmmaker and animation designer/producer.

Born in Devon, raised in Shropshire and now based in Manchester, I've wriggled my way up the UK, although I still regularly trickle down to Cambridge where I work as Head of Design at the wonderful, Raspberry Pi.

I specialise in lively, characterful illustration, experimental video and humorous, irreverent script and design for animation.

Over the years my work has taken me into the fields of TV, print, online, video games and installations.

If you'd like to delve deeper into my being, please get in touch at or hunt me down on Twitter and/or Vimeo.
