About the speaker
Magnus is a creative, animator, and founder of Hue&Cry. Hailing from Los Angeles his path has taken him from architecture to animation and then advertising.
While studying architecture he began using animation as a means to show concepts and stories about his building designs. This exploration led him to the motion-graphics industry where animation was being applied to push commercials into new visual territory. Moving from animation to advertising he became a creative director at Martin Agency where he helped win and manage the OREO account.
Regardless of the craft or occupation he prefers not to think of each as a professional silo standing on its own. The act of applying critical thinking and intuition towards solving a visual or structural problem is universal. Each and every one of us can do it. The key is to just start making.
Joe Smith is the brand and creative consultancy of Padilla, which dives deep into business challenges – beyond symptoms to the very root of what needs solving. We become a member of your team and an advocate for your customers, uncovering that sweet spot where your needs and theirs intersect. Then we help you craft the strategies, stories and innovations that grow your brand.
Helping to build strong and healthy communities benefits us all. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and empowerment to our work in the community that we do in our business.
Here’s what you need to know about us. We break traditions. We break molds. We break through. Our passion is to help you make the change you need to succeed. From strategy to execution, we create the kind of change that brings you closer to the people you serve: citizens, consumers, and entire communities.
Consider cultural impact as The Martin Agency’s modus operandi. When Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert spontaneously start talking about our clients…when our clients are a Jeopardy! clue and Wheel of Fortune reveal…when SNL parodies our man in a lady wig…we consider it both a good day and all in a day’s work. And maybe a Hump Day, too. A full-service advertising agency with a goal of not just making our clients seen – but making them culturally relevant, Martin has created steady buzz around GEICO, OREO, UPS, Donate Life and Walmart, to name a few. And we’ve been doing it as far back as 1969 when we penned Virginia is for Lovers. People still wonder, What can Brown do for you? Work that leverages culture, wakes people up, fights invisibility, and gets talked about – it’s what we do, and we’ve done it for 53 years.
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
The strength of Fahrenheit IT lies in our ability to provide high quality candidates and deliver customized staffing solutions designed to improve productivity and deliver results.
