Nickelodeon Network ID's

A few months ago, Nickelodeon approached us with the task of creating new musical versions of their classic mnemonic. We helped them refresh the brand with ten different songs using this classic Nick melody. 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!

Cause + Effect

Some new sound design work for Intel with our friends over at Cause + Effect ! Sound design and mix by Stephen Hermann

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!

Helmed by ECD Jamie Hubbard and Art Director Nick Jernigan, this expertly designed + animated fully CG spot breaks down how Optane Memory has all the necessary ingredients to make PCs more responsive, and ultimately more powerful.

Producer | Allie Hess
Animators | Corey Ryan, Marcin Puduski, John Magbanua, Bhakti Patel
