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 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. Building real-world particles and simulations whether fluid, smoke, clouds, explosions, or fire is the voodoo that you do so well. Your expression is in four dimensions; whether highly stylized or photo-real, you have an uncanny sense of nuance and subtlety. Houdini and Blender are your essential toolkit, and you are comfortable with C4D and other 3D platforms. The combination of your skill-set and your undeniable understanding of physics makes you formidable. You are the smoke for our mirrors.
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.
