Company descriptionJulian Brown is On The Chase! One guy. Ten years. 200+ projects. Collaborating with tons of amazing clients: Cineplex, Deloitte, Elections Canada, MaRS, Martin Prosperity Institute, Pentax, Shoppers Drug Mart, Ubisoft, WWF and many more. His work has been awarded by The Webbys, Adobe, Applied Arts, RGD & Summit.
Julian is a speaker on motion design, running a solo studio, talking about money... and sometimes telling people why their offices really f*cking suck. He hosts a webinar series for RGD titled "Show Me The Money" and contributes regularly to discussion panels.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?At DesignThinkers 2018, I had 10 minutes to speak on-stage in front of 1000+ people, right before graphic design legend Michael Bierut. No pressure.
My talk was a candid exposé of working remotely and a middle-finger takedown of today's full-time office culture. Every single slide was an original looping animation—most featuring the unignorable word “F*CK.”
Michael Bierut followed me on Twitter after! So I followed him back.
Why should you hire me?"Less eye candy, more brain food." As an independent motion design consultant, close collaboration with your team is vital to utilize your valuable experience and insight. You know your goals and audience, and I know how to use the motion design to reach them. By working together as a focused collaborative team, there are no hours wasted pursuing uninformed directions, or playing agency telephone—the result is killer motion design at a great value.
