THE TEAM Shaunta Butler + Dave Eastman – each contribute a unique vision to the studio’s multifaceted design mission. The two first met in the winter of 2007 and officially joined forces in the summer of 2015 to design a creative company from top to bottom, bringing their distinct backgrounds of architecture, music, technology + design to bear on the process. The resulting studio is exceptional in its ability to deliver integrated design services- from teaching virtual courses, feature length movies, event videography, original music compositions to film restoration, album covers to public art installations, media digitation to music videos- all rooted on a single, experimental narrative.
