Hello! My name is Keith Lapinig, and I love puppies… but that’s not why you’re here, I assume?
 
Whether you need a designer, on-camera personality, film editor, or just a friend, I’m here for you! On top of being a graphics designer and video editor, I enjoy creating online content like my paper art silhouettes. I’ve previously designed a balloon exclusively for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, co-hosted commercials for the Disneyland Resort, and more.
 
So whether you’re looking for an on-camera host or a designer to communicate your ideas, allow me to be your genuine connection to the audience.
 
Let’s tell those stories together!

SKILLS

I admittedly didn’t know what to make as my focus in this personal website of mine. Should it be a portfolio of my Graphic Design work? Illustrations? Paper Art? YouTube? On-Air Personality reels? Sorry, I love doing way too much! So please take a look at what I’m capable of, and maybe I could help with what you’re looking for.

Below are some of the services I specialize in!

PAPER ART

A favorite initiative of mine is visiting Disney Parks and other travel destinations prepared with paper cutouts and composing them in photographs to give the illusion that they belong in the scene.

GRAPHIC DESIGN
AND ILLUSTRATION

Wanting to create always came as a natural desire for me, and I often find it easiest to simply design and illustrate what I want to express. Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator are my best friends when it comes to all of my art projects.

MOTION DESIGN
AND VIDEO

The medium I am most confident in (probably because I went to college for it). I love taking my passion for graphic design and bring it to the moving image. If you need fun shapes and text flying around your screen, let me be that guy to help you!

PERSONALITY

Not sure I consider this a talent, but I have been blessed to find myself booked for various on-camera gigs. They're a lot of fun, and I'm always honored when selected to be a company's talent, influencer, ambassador, etc.

SKILLS BREAKDOWN

I have an enthusiasm and versatility that I proudly wear as my strongest asset to bring to any team. With a knowledge in various art mediums, I feel comfortable adapting to any project thrown at me whether it pertains to video editing, computer graphics, fine art, etc.

Shadowbox Paper Art

Excited and proud to contribute original artworks that are showcased in the Disney Parks and Disney D23 conventions.

Silhouette Paper Art

I traveled the world to various Disney Parks and locations to find the perfect to stand in for the perfect shot of blending my carefully cut paper figures with their environment.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon

Possibly the proudest moment in my career. Back in 2011, Macy’s introduced a brand new campaign contest that invited guests to find a blank vinyl toy of an elf hidden somewhere in their Macy’s department stores. Once found, the guest may take it home and decorate it in whatever they wanted. 
 
After a nationwide hunt through incredibly artistic submissions stemming from Alaska to Florida, I discovered my entry had the most votes in a worldwide poll. My elf became the winning design of the first-ever Macy’s Great American Elf Adventure. It was the first time I felt truly accomplished as an artist. Seeing it transformed by the artists at Macy’s Parade Studio onto a 34 foot-tall balloon that joined the 85th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a day I will never forget.

VIDEO/MOTION

From motion graphics designer to producer to editor, I’ve found myself wearing many more hats beyond graphic designer, web designer, and illustrator. Here are a couple of segments and sizzles that I’ve made for television and more.
