VINCE
WARNE
b. 1995




Hi. I’m Vince Warne, an artist and designer interested in narrative, technology, and film.. After graduating from Wesleyan, I worked in the film industry until COVID-19 hit, then joined Interlace Inc, a Lightspeed-funded startup, as Creative Director. After leaving Interlace I created, marketed, and sold an NFT artwork for 17 ETH earlier this year.

Since then, I’ve done illustration and animation for clients including The Browser Company, Lexus, and Starling Labs. I’ve previously worked with the agency Diamond Hook Media as an art director on photo+video shoots for Squatty Potty and Obviously. I’ve also worked as an art director, animator, and set dresser on feature films and shorts which have gone on to premiere at Sundance and Locarno.

I’m passionate about film, and film writing; I am an editor at The Millennium Film Journal and have been published in Film Comment Magazine. I post daily AI-generated artwork imagining movies that don’t exist on an Instagram called Fourth Eye Film Archive, the successor to an interactive website I built early in the pandemic to raise money for shuttered theaters.

I’m currently seeking a full-time position in NYC or remote, in a role related to design, branding, and/or art direction. Drop me a line if you’d like to chat.

Presence


Presence is a case study in product development and visual design that I created during my time at Interlace, Inc. The task was to come up with an original idea for a product that could actually be built in the real world. I sought a gap in the market: Linktree, a successful ‘microsite’ product, didn’t feel personal enough for users whose brands depended on control over their aesthetic.

After extensive product research and user interviews of Linktree users, I identified points where Linktree could be improved, and developed the idea of Presence, a premium alternative. The team didn’t move forward with the product, although the continuing success of Linktree and its competitors speak to the relevance of perfecting the “microsite” as a concept. Below you can see my pitch for Presence.
