Mandel is a digital artist, born and raised in Oakland, California, and has been a storyteller for as long as he can remember. Even while pursuing a Business degree at UCLA, he couldn’t help but spend almost every weekend PA-ing or editing short films.
In the past decade, Mandel has made a name for himself designing motion graphics and editing for promotional videos, trailers, broadcast TV, shorts, PSAs, event recaps, music videos, Instagram updates, and recently, SuperBowl XLIX. His client list includes the likes of NBC Sports, Yan Can Cook, The Skoll Foundation, Greenstart and Adobe Youth Voices among others.
Mandel’s interests in storytelling, design, music, food, performance, and culture all culminate in a diverse and colorful aesthetic that informs, entertains, and moves people towards action.
