An art director, animator, and designer with more than 10 years’ experience, Sianey Montes de Oca has worked for various advertising agencies and production studios in LA, New York and across the United States.
Born and raised in Mexico City, locally known as DF (de effe), and immigrated to the States as a teenager, Sianey is fluent in both Spanish and English, and more importantly, she’s fluent in the cultures of the two worlds. Her passion for the art of flamenco dance with its impeccable sense of timing is an essential influence on her design and animation sensibilities.
Over the past seven years, Sianey has worked on many interesting projects from title sequences for independent documentaries like The Giant’s Dream (about The Iron Giant by Brad Bird), Tomorrowland, Marilyn, Oswald, Roots : A History Revealed, to TV show opens like The Flash, SuperGirl, and the on-air rebranding of the Lifetime Network with an all-female design team. Prior to joining BIEN, Sianey freelanced at many well-known studios and agencies like Brand New School, Leroy+Clarkson, Imaginary Forces, Taylor James, PIC Agency, BigStar, Elastic Creative, and R/GA.
If you were to visit the Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island, be sure to take a few minutes to watch the documentary in the lobby. It’s part of the permanent exhibit. Sianey is very proud to have partaken in this project as a first-generation immigrant art director, designer, and animator. It is, after all, her tangible contribution to the American dream.
