Nexus Studios has announced that 2018 British Arrows award-winner Lucas Zanotto has joined its roster of directors for exclusive representation in the UK, US and Amsterdam.
From cake-making drones to meticulously crafted 2D work, Lucas’ tactile sensibility, inquisitive mind and desire to create innovative, playful work has led him on a journey encompassing award-winning TV commercials and branded content, practical installations, digital builds and more.
Shifting between analogue and digital craft techniques, Lucas creates warm and engaging work for global clients including Barclays, Paulig and Telia and Wimbledon, for whom his recent ‘140 years’ spot scooped a 2018 British Arrows award.
Through his entertainment property YAKATOY, Lucas creates beautiful tools for children which encourage creativity through music and art. His 2018 composing app ‘Bandimal’ substitutes instruments with animated cartoon animals and won a 2018 Apple design award.
Lucas Zanotto said: “I’ve been a fan of Nexus for more than 15 years and I’m impressed at how the company has managed to keep a fresh and cutting edge image and approach throughout. I’m excited to finally join the crew!”
Nexus Studios Co-Founder Chris O’Reilly noted: “Lucas’s work has a playful inventiveness and distinctive warm intelligence. It’s a tone not bound by any one technique as he effortlessly brings analogue and digital craft together into thought provoking but likeable films, apps and installations. We’ve admired his work for a long time and are delighted to have him join the world class roster of talent at Nexus.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessNexus Studios, Mon, 30 Jul 2018 16:03:16 GMT
