Process: Strategy + Execution + Vision = Results

Process

STRATEGY + VISION + EXECUTION = RESULTS

Strategy

We begin with investigating the market conditions, similar projects, past and present, and formulize a unique strategy that incorporates your vision and goals. We initialize an ongoing discussion and collaboration that ensures the most sophisticated and comprehensive solutions.

Execution

We design and implement all aspects of a project. This gives us complete freedom to create the most comprehensive and integrated solution possible, and in a timely manner. Our unique approach expedites the process and avoids the usual back-and-forth that can slow a project.

You will find our communication clear and concise, with an attention to detail and quality.

Vision

Emotion is an often overlooked facet of marketing and advertising. We strive to inspire an emotional connection, creating a stimulating experience that engages the viewer.

We work with you and your team to fully understand each project, the goals and the expectations. We then formulate an approach that best meets these goals and ways to exceed them.

Our passion for creating the exceptional elevates our solutions above and beyond the norm.

3D Renderings

3 dimensional renderings offer unlimited possibilities to create an accurate and visually compelling presentation for architecture, engineering, product design – the possibilities are endless. We can create a film including 3D animation, live actors, sound and motion graphics.

  • Engineering
  • Advertising

Interactive

Websites, kiosk touchscreens, mobile and tablets are blurring the lines between when and where people interact. Each design is created to actively engage audiences across these various platforms.

We utilize the latest technologies to ensure widespread compatibility, responsive designs and flexible solutions. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Content Management Systems (CMS) give our projects the results and abilities to adjust easily as content changes or evolves.

Film

Moving images, including live footage and animation, are an important asset to any presentation. The numerous ways of viewing, from websites to showrooms, continues to grow. We create a detailed storyboard and script to clearly demonstrate each piece of the film before production, ensuring that we capture the essence of each project’s message.

3D Animation – we take a cinematic approach to 3D animation, creating camera movements (fly-arounds, walk-throughs, close-ups) that inform and capture the attention of the audience

Live Footage and Green Screen – we can combine and composite live footage to add an additional layer of realism and sophistication. This can include helicopter video footage of the actual site with the 3D building composited into the video and actors perform a scene that is then added to the 3D animation.

Motion Graphics (including logo animations, lifestyle imagery and music) – animating logos, text and graphic elements are a common experience with video and film. Motion graphics create an opportunity for a visually captivating way to translate information, highlight specific elements of a scene or add artistic imagery.

Graphic

Creativity is experienced through a diversity of mediums, from print to interactive. Graphic design forms the foundation from which each presentation builds.

Branding – brands are born from creative strategy. The process begins with a comprehensive understanding of markets, goals and vision. We understand every detail of a project and create options to evaluate. Our solutions capture the unique qualities of a project and form the foundation that each marketing piece will be built upon.

Print – print materials may be on the decline, but there is still an unmistaken impression left on someone that holds, feels and experiences a quality design. We leverage print materials, whether it be brochures, flyers or custom packaging, to leave a lasting impression and compliment the digital presentation pieces.

Advertising

Technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, enabling content to be viewed in a multitude of ways instantaneously. We tailor each project to reach the appropriate audience as fluidly as possible, providing a flexible solution that leverages these evolving platforms efficiently. Reaching an audience is only part of the equation. We specialize in creating captivating and engaging presentations that form an emotional connection with the audience. We work closely with PR and sales teams to create a strategy that conveys the message in a clear and concise manner, further encouraging the audience to interact with the project.

Photography + Video

Capturing a moment in time that invokes an emotion requires a creative vision from start to finish. Our photography ranges from landscapes and cityscapes to fashion and lifestyle imagery. Each image is taken as a part of the whole, a piece of a story that contributes to the overall message and integrates seamlessly with the project vision.

With today’s technologies we can easily expand still imagery into video, and back again. This provides an important element in today’s rapidly expanding possibilities for presentation, from YouTube to a large LCD screen to a mobile device.
