Kaskade

Before he was Kaskade, he was just Ryan to us. The cool and friendly A&R guy who was our main contact at San Francisco’s Om Records helping produce all of the releases we designed.  We were happy work on his first releases as Kaskade. He eventually became a world famous and grammy nominated artist, DJ, producer and remixer with millions of Facebook and Instagram followers headlining sold out arena shows and Las Vegas residencies. Crazy.

Promos: Motion

Along with our static promos, we have spent large chunks of time in the lab creating motion driven promotional banners too. With the same “scraps, sketchbooks and project leftovers” mentality, we’ve sewn together ideas into these short videos.

EdgeRift Software

Founded by two brothers and app developers in the Pacific Northwest, EdgeRift creates and develops popular apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. These range from fun games to industry standard setting and indispensable.  We have been able to work closely with them to create graphics for some of their award winning apps including “Real Solitaire” and “Emergency Radio”. From playing cards families to UI we’ve been able to help add a distinct graphic look to go along with their code.
