Our team partnered with the great people at Burdette Ketchum to create this animation as part of a campaign aimed at launching Swisher's entrance into the electronic cigarette market.
An animated music video full of robots, angels, and monsters for an incredible band? When that job comes around you grab the most talented dudes you can find and high five them until you have a finished video. That's exactly what Illustrator Shane Douberly and Animator William Waller did...and Dripsblack was born.
Since that video, the North Florida based company has become a fresh new force in the Jacksonville design community and continues to build relationships with the advertising and entertainment industries. On top of working with The Robin Shepherd Group, Brunet-Garcia, and The University of North Florida, Dripsblack created and sponsored the Citrus Cel Animation Festival. Currently Citrus Cel is the only animation film festival in Florida.
What do we feel coming around the corner? More fun and more quality work.
We are going to keep pushing our brand forward. We'll keep moving our design aesthetic to new places and experimenting with new techniques. The only way we know how to operate is to get our hands dirty and build awesome stuff from the ground up.
Speaking of how we operate, we'd love to offer a one stop shop to all of our clients. However, with the state of the industry it is the perfect time to ask ourselves..."What are we best at?". Because budget restrictions might force our clients to shop pieces of a project out to various vendors to find the best value, we have to be willing and able to work well with other houses. We think that's an awesome opportunity to create a stellar product. After all, who doesn't like clicking with a like minded creative team? It can only possibly lead to more high fives.
Have we mentioned we are fans of high fives?
