About

Laura Aldofredi is an Italian artist based in Amsterdam, specialized in 2d animation, visual development and illustration.

She likes to combine heartwarming stories and sophisticated designs in her visual projects.
Animation is what she loves the most, but she enjoys bringing a story to life also through illustration.

She believes every creative work is a challenge for new design and storytelling possibilities.
That’s why she’s always up for new unpredictable projects to explore.

Laura graduated as a MA in Animation at AKV St. Joost (Netherlands) and as a MA with honors in Illustration at Ars in Fabula (Italy).

Right now Laura is based in Amsterdam and she is coordinating a 2d feature film post-production and working as illustrator. She is currently working on the development of the animated short “Life”, her debut film as a director.
