About

Every splash starts with a spill.
That first crest of the wave, that first trickle of the torrent.
It’s that drop of potential, gaining strength and speed as it grows,
Sweeping us up with its force, taking us somewhere new.

“Get Spillt” is an invitation to join us
In transforming drops of potential into extraordinary destinations.
It’s both a call to action and a process.
It’s being brave and choosing boldly.
Getting messy in order to get it done.
We’ve learned to harness clarity from the chaos.
Find the simplicity hidden within the complex.
It’s our method behind the insightful concepts and clever craft
that keeps our clients coming back for more.

We’re searchers, diviners.
Looking for that hidden source beneath the surface.
Because when we tap into that, it all flows.

ESPN Backstory

Hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Don Van Natta, Jr., Backstory serves as a cold case for sports journalism. Throughout the series, Don peels back the layers and brings new insights to historic moments in sports. For the opening titles and graphics package, Don and the production team at Bluefoot Entertainment requested a contemporary multi-layered look that would reflect the show’s journalistic ambitions. Our team developed a show package that blends sports, investigative journalism and elements from Don Van Natta Jr.’s multi-decade career at the Miami Herald, New York Times and ESPN. The integration of live-action shots from Bluefoot, CGI elements and scans of physical articles and notes from Don’s investigation allowed for an opening title sequence that feels authentic to the Backstory brand. Subtle secondary touches such as animating several elements in reverse or building football field hash marks into a timeline serve to reinforce a nuanced, sophisticated and cohesive package.

With the return of the PGA in 2020, ESPN needed to address a unique situation. Normally throughout the day’s broadcast, there would be the opportunity to cut away to spectators and commentators to reflect on the rich history of golf. Mid COVID pandemic with no crowds, there was a distinct need to develop cutaway moments to help fill on-air time. We explored various contemporary design options to both brand the 2020 PGA Championship, and allow for the creation of iconic moment editorial montages.

Sebastian Maniscalco has two passions: comedy and food. His hilarious social observations and food related questions come to life in the series Well Done, produced by Levity Live, Food Network and Discovery+. Viewers follow Sebastian Maniscalco as he explores the world of food from a unique perspective, covering everything from interviews with world-famous chefs to foodies, comedians, Sebastian's family, and everything in between. ‍ Our team was fully embedded with the Levity Live production, having a hand in everything from the title sequence, transitions, lower thirds, and quirky animated in-show graphics to help bring this idea to life. With a creative brief referring to an Amalfi coast vibe, we pulled the majority of our design inspiration based on this breezy, Italian locale. Utilizing illustration and 2D animation we create a clean, but textured aesthetic, that was perfect for tying in Sebastian’s Italian roots with the overall vibe of the show.

If 2020 revealed anything, it’s that researching the possibilities of unknown viruses is paramount to the continuation of humanity. For a special topical edition of National Geographic’s Virus Hunters, we asked to visually depict and deconstruct the search for that one outlying future virus through a graphical metaphor. Utilizing simple dots, colors and shapes our team depicted the complex science behind pathology in a clear, yet engaging manner.

Developing a new series launch campaign with over 1.5 million views is no easy task. As huge fans of the Jason Bourne film franchise, our team was honored to create the “Redacted” promo for the highly anticipated Treadstone series on USA Network. From the initial creative call, our intention was to craft a promo that would engage the super-fan and captivate the new viewer. Developed as an action-packed thriller, Treadstone explores the origins of the infamous covert CIA black ops program while creating a connection to present-day special ops in D.C., Berlin, Paris and beyond. The design and motion theory reflect these themes, weaving show footage and typography together in a fast-paced and heavily redacted story.

As huge fans of Adult Swim, our team is humbled to have the opportunity to develop the on-air look for their Toonami content block year after year. It’s one of those rare opportunities where we’re encouraged to truly spread our creative wings while working in close collaboration with the Adult Swim team. Ultimately, a massive, detailed graphics toolkit is developed and implemented each year. We can't wait to start on the next one!

Food is an intrinsic part of the holidays, bringing friends and family together in celebration. Cooking Channel has it pretty buttoned up when it comes to presenting appealing, approachable plates. So our team really had to think of a unique take on showcasing the classic holiday favorites. Our concept focused on what happens in those final moments before the food hits the table, the “finishing touches.”

CNN’s journalism, global reach and award-winning marketing have shaped their organization into one of the world's most iconic brands. As their footprint continues to expand, it is critical to ensure all platforms are aligned, keeping the brand clean, cohesive and strong. While essential for consistency, reading a brand usage guide can be a dreadfully boring task for employees to undertake. Which is why our team developed a light-hearted approach and sometimes even absurd set of brand usage depictions in this launch video for CNN’s new brand guide. Narration from Richard Quest adds authenticity, elevating the tone while encouraging employees to help give the brand the respect it deserves.
