What We Do
ggnstudio's key strength is our ability to collaborate with broadcasters and brands, to create cutting-edge creative output across a broad range of media.
Our experience in key areas of broadcast and commercial projects enables ggnstudio to take on a diverse range of creative opportunities, flexibly expanding our team to accommodate projects of any size. As a result, our body of work benefits from a range of creative involvement - a full creative solution from start to finish, bringing an agency's creative vision to life in-house, or working with existing ideas in partnership with other post production / production facilities. Our adaptability is designed to provide our client's with the smartest route to achieve the most successful outcome.
ggnstudio was founded by Creative Directors Will Innes Smith and Adam Wells and Head of Design Nick Tarte.
Our experience producing award-winning title sequences spans two decade, covering a wide range of programming genres. These include iconic Live Action / VFX sequences, such as The Lions Tour of New Zealand, which collected an RTS Award and BAFTA nomination, Creative Direction for Sky Sports Premier League, CG / Post Production solutions (Monday Night Football / The Ashes / Super League) and design-driven openers for Red Bull, BT Sport Films, Sky Cinema and Premiership Rugby.
The spine of ggnstudio has developed branding and creative for a number of Europe’s largest broadcasters, crafting Housestyle, Programme Packaging and Brand Identity recognised around the world.
Our success in this area of design stems from our collective understanding of a brand’s identity and integrity, alongside the nuts-and-bolts experience required to take a creative through to transmission.
At ggnstudio our broad range of work encompasses a spectrum of creative projects, requiring a variety of animation approaches.
Beyond our in-house 2D and 3D partnerships, we have established relationships with leading animation and post production companies in London. These long-standing associations, built across countless joint projects, provide an extension to our capabilities on a project to project basis.
A critical branding element for all broadcast and online channels, the team have written creative, designed or directed an extensive array of channel idents and OSP packages, including ice-cold, sharp edges for Red Bull; explosions of colour for Sky Arts; wild, animated graphics for music channel The Amp; a seamless 360 journey through a spectrum of film genres for Sky Movies and an array of high-speed, fan reactions for Sky Sports.
Whether it's a compact collection of big-budget Live-Action / VFX spots for Ford's sponsorship of the Premier League, a high volume of graphic / VT-based idents for Irn Bru, Intel or Barrs, or full CG sponsorship for Tiger Beer, our team understand the unique challenge of creating a bold, distinct family of sponsorship spots to align with the essence of a brand's associated programming.
We have an established grounding in creating award-winning graphic and live-action Promos in all shapes and sizes - typographic and illustrative solutions, VT treatments and CG / Live Action films for clients including A+E Networks, Channel 5, Sky Sports, Now TV, History Channel, Lifetime and Sky Cinema.
