Creative Lives — Marie-Margaux Tsakiri-Scanatovits, director at Moth

Posted 20 March 2017 Interview by Laura Snoad

Director Marie-Margaux Tsakiri-Scanatovits set up London animation collective Moth with two friends in 2010, unaware that it would blossom into a full-time studio. Since then the team has expanded to five and now counts Facebook, The Guardian, The New York Times, XL Records and NSPCC as clients. This growth means that as well as generating concepts for animations, Marie-Margaux’s role encompasses a fair bit of strategy and admin.
