My name is Maryam Parwana, a native New Yorker, a child of immigrants, and a 90s kid. I am an artist, a storyteller, and a Motion Design Director with 15-plus years of experience creating motion effects and live-action integrated work. I combine my love of the visual arts, live-action vfx, photography, and music along with my diverse styles to produce stylistically provocative work. I specialize in direction and moving animation for film and video, promos, graphic packages, music projects, branded content, video game design, experiential motion design, and print.


I’ve collaborated with many talented people and companies such as Levi’s, HBO, Showtime, AMC, Google, Pepsi, and Amazon. I’ve also developed graphic packages and opens for sports stadiums and arenas including the homes of the Washington Nationals, the Tampa Bay Rays, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Brooklyn Nets. My major concert visuals include JAY Z’s “Made In America tour, and Justin Timberlake and Shakira performances. In my early days I was at Rockstar Games motion designing and art directing intros and graphic elements for famed GTA franchise, with over 8 other titles, including “The Warriors,” “Midnight Club,” and “RedDead.” Always thinking about the future, I inspire next generation artists teaching “Introduction to Motion Design” at The School of Visual Arts in New York City.
