Matthew Kalinauskas

is an animation and design director based in Hamilton, Ontario where he lives with his wife, two children, and a snake plant named Mr. Sparkles…

He takes his animation very seriously. But not pretentious-seriously. His sweet spot: marrying nostalgic charm with modern design. The result: a deep portfolio built on beautiful, hand-drawn, story-forward pieces that feel both fresh and familiar. Some of his work can be seen in ads for MediaSmarts, Boost, CBC Kids, Iceberg Vodka, Metrolinx and recently directed a music video for The Glorious Sons. Highlighted IAMSTATIC collaborations include spots for Servus, Royal Canadian Mint and TFO/Idéllo.
