About Me

Artist, Thinker, Creative Doer
Sara Shabani is a freelance concept artist and art director currently based in Stuttgart (GER).  While studying for her Bachelor of Graphic Design, she worked as graphic designer, set designer, TV moderator and theater actress in Tehran. Her graduation project, which was her first animation experimental experience (Bike, 2D, cut out with stop motion), was presented at numerous worldwide festivals such as Annecy, Tehran Animation Festival, Cyprus


This experience brought a bigger passion to her artistic life: dynamic story telling. She began working as motion graphic designer and art director with studios and agencies. In 2015, the Cyprus Pharos Arts Foundation and London Orchid Classic chose her as one of the video artists to make an experimental animation for Alice in Wonderland/150th anniversary. 


Her passion for telling cross-cultural stories brought her to the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Germany to study animation, where she’s been working as creative director, concept and look development artist on numerous projects. Her film “Giant & the Seed”, for which she worked as director, art director and producer, was screened on film festivals world wide and has won the Filmschau Baden-Württemberg Award for Best Animation as well as a special mention at the Santiago del Estero Film Festival and several nominations. In 2023 she was granted a 2 month art residency at the in Viborg (Denmark) to develop her upcoming graphic novel.
