A few months ago, Nickelodeon approached us with the task of creating new musical versions of their classic mnemonic.

With each spot we tailored the music and integrated sound design to fit each ID for a network wide sonic rebrand. Check a few of them out here!

Intel came to us with a question; how do they clearly articulate what Optane Memory™ does and how it works? Understanding this groundbreaking technology shouldn't be complicated- in fact, we thought it should be as easy as making pancakes!
