My name is Travis Heneghen, I am a Motion & Graphic Designer living in the Seattle area.
I have experience working with the Adobe Creative Suite (After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Audition, Flash), Cinema 4D, FL Studio, various VST instruments and plugins as well as Windows and OSX environments.
In 2007 I founded Shift Recordings, an independent record label focusing on releasing Dubstep vinyl and downloads, a virtually unknown genre in the US at the time. What started as a hobby became my full-time job, along with a busy DJ schedule, audio engineering for numerous record labels and audio production work under the alias Lukki for various imprints, including Excision's Rottun Recordings.
Soon after, I discovered Borgore and Flux Pavilion, signing them to their first record deals in 2009 and watched them rise from unknown to two of the biggest names in the history of electronic music, changing the culture of EDM in the process. I have also had the pleasure of releasing music from such artists as KJ Sawka, Reggae legend Lutan Fyah, Armanni Reign, The Widdler and dozens more- spanning over 40 releases.
The Next Chapter
In 2012, while seeking a new look for Shift Recordings, I found myself increasingly interested in the visual creative field. I began studying Graphic Design and within 6 months found myself completely immersed in a new creative outlet and craft, of which I knew I'd barely scratched the surface. I soon found myself coding, designing and producing Flash banner advertisements for various ad agencies as a subcontractor; this is where my fascination with motion design really set in.
The next 4 years have been consumed by learning all that I can about motion, design, art, color theory, animation, photography, videography and branding. In an effort to further my skill set and depth of knowledge from independent studies I enrolled in Bellevue College to pursue an Associate of Arts degree in digital media arts, focusing on motion design. I graduated in 2016 with high distinction as a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society, earning a final GPA of 3.96.
