Framestore is expanding its Design department, with the appointment of Anthony Gibbs and Duncan Elms as Design Directors in the Los Angeles office. Anthony and Duncan will continue to grow the skill-set of Framestore’s Design department while offering greater integrated opportunities for both Framestore’s West Coast and global clients.
Framestore’s design capabilities are world-renowned, having created award-winning title sequences for a raft of James Bond films and the international craft festival Ciclope. 'We are thrilled to expand our design department in Los Angeles with Anthony and Duncan', said James Razzall, Senior Executive Producer of the Los Angeles office. 'They both have an impressive portfolio designing high-level creative work with strategic thinking for a number of big-name clients. At Framestore, more and more clients are coming to us looking for smart design thinking in addition to our other capabilities. We are recognizing how design is becoming more of an integral part of developing creative solutions for our clients, and we are confident that bringing on Anthony and Duncan will raise our offerings to the next level'.
Anthony moves to LA from Framestore's London office, having joined the company in 2007. His portfolio includes work for Mulberry, BBC Comic Relief, Nokia and Cosmos, the sequel to the award-winning 1980s science documentary series. Anthony was also Art Director on the stunning animated rose installation which formed the focal point of Somerset House's Valentino: Master of Couture exhibition.
Duncan is an award-winning motion designer and director, having created content for film, TV and online. While working across a broad range of design styles, he specialises in infographics and the visualisation of increasingly big data in clear and engaging ways. Duncan has been shortlisted for the Information is Beautiful Awards for three consecutive years. His ‘Bitcoin Explained’ video also struck a chord on Vimeo, where it has been played almost one million times.
