Rob is a creative powerhouse, fine tuning every comp to maximize cool factor and polish. His contribution of motion graphics and art direction went a long way towards helping us win the first Spider-Man movie online campaign. He is a product of the Star Wars, anime and sci-fi generation and it shows in his work.

Great creative is one of the key factors for an agency to win new accounts, solve client's business goals and engage consumers.

Rob saved the day after another animator botched my project and then bailed on me when they realized they couldn't pull it off. I felt some trepidation going into the same project with someone new, but working with Rob was so effortless that I almost forgot about the previous person's drama. Rob's work is creative and fun, blending all of my brand assets with grace. And he's super professional and easy to work with, which I really appreciate.
