The New Blank is an award-winning design and animation-driven production company based in Seattle, Washington. We are currently expanding our creative team with passionate and highly driven visionaries. We are a band of individuals pulled together with a desire to make. Our clients range from TV networks to traditional and digital agencies to fortune 100 companies and small startups. Story and idea drive us; it’s what wakes us up in the morning and compels everything we do throughout the day.
You are a 3D Generalist and have a unique vision and compelling style and technique to express that vision. Every day brings new ideas and solutions. Not to mention your innate, unstoppable excitement to see those thoughts and ideas come to life. You see story in shape, color, form, and movement. Creativity bleeds from your fingertips and oozes from your pores, and expresses itself in different and diverse principles, whether music, film-making, experimental animation, or illustration. It doesn’t matter if you studied at a fantastic school or are self-taught; you have made it through the hurdle and grind of learning animation techniques, design rules, and software required to make it all materialize. All the while, you acknowledge and embrace the fact that there is always something new to learn. Your expression is in four dimensions; whether highly stylized or photo-real, your sense of design has depth and time as a mandate. Unreal, Houdini, C4D, and Blender are your essential toolkit, and you are comfortable with various renderers as well as After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator. You also have explored particles, fluid simulation, advanced tracking, and compositing. The combination of your skill-set and your unquenchable thirst for design makes you formidable.
Together, we will foster and encourage creative growth as well as technique expansion and speed. We will always reach for the next level, working with each other in discerning and collaborate to hit that elusive mark. We will work our asses off to create that outstanding, portfolio-worthy piece, and then we will play.
