Graphic & Motion Design

Brand Identity Design

Packaging Design

Is a subset of graphic design in that it uses graphic design principles in a filmmaking or video production context (or other temporally evolving visual medium) through the use of animation or filmic techniques.

What is a brand? No, it isn’t just your logo, or your identity, it’s deeper than that. All of these elements work together to define your company, but your brand can often be dismissed. So what is your brand? Your brand can be described as being the way your company is perceived on an emotional level.

What made you pick that product off the shelf? It was probably the packaging design—the color, form, graphics, and typography—that made the difference. Packaging design makes brands tangible to consumers, making an emotional connection and influencing the decision to engage.

People feel more comfortable about the quality of a product when they can see and touch it. Video is the closest thing to being there, because it is a three dimensonal image rather than a flat photo.

If you’re wondering if social media marketing is right for your business, the verdict is in social media is a great way to drive repeat business and to attract new customers.

Video is currently the fastest growing website feature for small businesses. Why? Adding video to your website can help you improve customer relationships, and increase profits and brand awareness.


Let us serve you_ In order for us to serve you as seamlessly as possible, we will need to discuss the following: 1. Pre-Production - Let us warn you

Once you’ve decided on your wardrobe approach, we’ll want to go over it with you and your talent, since in most cases they’ll be using their own clothing. Here are a few examples of what your talent should not wear: • fabrics that wrinkle easily, like linen • baggy clothes (they make people look heavier than they really are) • shiny or noisy jewelry; dagling earrings • silk (it rustles, causing sound problems, and shows sweat stains quickly) • hats, unless necessary for the identity of the character (they cast shadows) • fabrics with tight patterns, like checks, stripes, herring bone and hounds tooth (they createan unstable, vibrating, jumpy effect called a moir´ pattern) • clothes and shoes that display brand

The term Deliverables will come up when it is time to sign a contract with your sales agent in order for him to find traditional distribution for your project (theatrical, DVD, VOD, broadcast, basically public viewing project, You Tube, Vimeo, and other online viewing channels) or with a distributor directly. Deliverables refer to a list of requirements such as print materials, publicity materials and legal documentation needed to release your project. Deliverables are the last things created by the production team and delivered to the film’s distributor.
