JOY + NOELLE is New York-based animation and design duo Joy Buran and Noelle Melody. They are illustrators, animators, and, as it happens, twins. Joy and Noelle studied Media Art at Pratt Institute; their thesis film was their first collaboration. They specialize in story-driven work, ranging from commercial video, independent short film and book illustration. Joy lives in Queens and Noelle lives in Kingston, NY; they keep rooms in each other’s house and nooks in each other’s brain. Each also keeps an exquisite collection of charming objects and pets, from which they draw inspiration.
