Gentleman Scholar has announced the addition of Sean Martin to its roster as a creative director/director in their New York Studio. The announcement was made by Christina Roldan, Gentleman Scholar's New York executive producer.
Originally from Rochester, New York, Martin has spent the past eight years at Psyop. Named a director there in 2016, his journey with the company began with a design internship, following his studies at The University of Denver and Full Sail University. Over that eight-year span, beginning in design, he moved on through 2D, 3D and compositing to eventually become a director.
Today, Martin's world-class portfolio features spots he directed for Apple, Google, Honda, Samsung, Tiffany, Xbox and many others created in partnership with world-leading brand and agency executives and creative artisans. His projects have earned wide awards recognition (FWA Award, Platinum Muse Creative Award) and exposure through Behance's illustrious Motion Gallery, Stash Magazine, and many other top-tier creative industry publications.
"Sean came into our sights in the most natural way possible - he beat us on a pitch a few years ago," Roldan said. "Since that moment, we've been tracking his work and have been consistently impressed by his growth. Sean is a wonderful fit for Gentleman Scholar in both his creativity and as a human. We hit it off in our first meeting and knew he would be a natural fit for the team."
"I've always had my eye on Gentleman Scholar," Martin said. "I love the company's mix of styles and feel it really meshes with my own sensibilities; fluidly moving from dark abstract glossy 3D to bright and graphic character illustration. To say the least, I'm beyond excited to get started."Scholar, 1 year ago
