About me

A small introduction about my self

Nor Mira Canales - Designer

information - digital - motion

I am a highly motivated and passionate individual with a strong skill set and huge enthusiasm for my work. I thrive visualising complex data systems. I'm very passionate about grid systems and typography. I'm a UX and UI enthusiast and I also love the power of keyframes. I'm dedicated and I exhibit a can do attitude with a smile. I enjoy smashing deadlines on time, on budget and to high standards. I always give everything for every project small or massive.

My career has developed in a different range of fields, from a video production and post production background to digital design, giving me the possibility to assemble a solid and coherent skill set.

Showreel

Video Editing + Motion Graphics

AV set with musician Broken Note


We’ve isolated the frequencies in all the elements of one of his tracks and whenever that frequency is hit, the audio set in Ableton Live with Max for Life plugins, sends the data via OSC reaching Resolume and triggering clips and effects in my visuals set. The result is a unison piece, completely synchronised. Every element in the sound has an equivalent in the video. We’re extending the set to 60 mins. Here are the first 3 :) All the material is original with assets created following the above process and with some footage of London scenic route: gas towers, overground from Caledonian Road to Camden Road, Hackney Marshes and a bunch of other corners.
