Syndrome Refocuses to Specialize in Motion Graphics, Design

Creative studio Syndrome Studio has re-strategized the company’s core services to focus on providing highly artistic and collaborative motion graphics and design to clients working across all media.

The studio recently signed with Hurrah! Marketing’s Carol Eisenrauch for representation in broadcast.

“We consider ourselves chameleons,” said Executive Creative Director Mars Sandoval, who co-founded the studio in 2002. “We are constantly seeking new creative challenges, experimenting with new technology, and enjoy engaging with our clients to create work that is exciting and memorable.”

The company is conscious of staying on top of design trends with a voice, style and contemporary aesthetic that stands out especially among youth culture.

Syndrome has created and produced motion graphics and animations for hundreds of projects, ranging from those featured in hit TV shows and large scale live events, to commercials for major brands, music videos, video games and industry gatherings. Many of them have involved TV Producer Mark Burnett.

“I’ve had a great experience working with Syndrome Studio over the last decade on a wide range of projects like the MTV Movie Awards, the Primetime Emmys, the People’s Choice Awards and History Channel’s The Bible. Not only do they have a great sense of design and animation, they have been reliable, collaborative, and a pleasure to work with.”

Syndrome recently finished a show package and opening title sequence for MTV series Unlocking the Truth, and has also worked on a series of Spanish-language commercials for AT&T.

Co-founder and Executive Creative Director Micah Hancock said Syndrome Studios values a collaborate approach to its work, problem solving and design process.

“In everything we do—from show packages for major networks, to stage graphics for music festivals and award shows, to motion graphics for trailers and commercials, to visual effects for music videos—we fully invest ourselves in the creative process, striving to create work that is fresh, fun and unexpected, no matter the size or medium of the project,” he said. “We love what we do and feel that our total commitment to the process comes across in our work.”
