Something Savage is the studio of Los Angeles-based graphic artist & animation director, Daniel Savage.

Daniel’s background in music and design has helped to develop a look that can best be described as visual rhythm. Through the use of simple forms and wit, he is able to explain complex ideas. His work has been recognized by the ADC Young Guns, Webby Awards, and Society of Illustrators to name a few. He has taught at SVA and NYU, and created the film festival Yule Log 2.0.
