3 Ring Circus, a full-service creative branding firm based in Los Angeles, has a new creative team on board, which has just finished a string of projects. Maziar Majd leads the team as creative director.
Majd had been freelancing with various top design firms. He began his design career as an art director at a local TV station in Washington, D.C. Majd moved on to broadcast design studio Belief as lead designer from 1998 through 2001. While with Belief, he spearheaded award-winning network redesigns and show opens for many major clients, including USA Networks, TBS, Sony, National Geographic and MTV. He was awarded a BDA Platinum Award for his network package for SET (Sony Entertainment Television) in India.
"Maziar brings with him a wealth of global design experience and technical expertise, skills which will be instrumental in our company's growth, and our further movement into providing HDTV production services for our clients," said John Sideropoulos, 3 Ring Circus ceo.

3 Ring Circus recently created an HDTV Awareness Campaign for various HDTV manufacturers like Zenith. The campaign sheds light on the attributes of HDTV technology, and is targeted to American general consumers. The spots, which include both live-action elements and graphics, are being produced entirely in-house using 3 Ring Circus' state-of-the-art HD suite. Among the planned 20 total spots are those featuring Tom Verica of the NBC series AMERICAN DREAMS and Neil McDonough of BOOMTOWN, with future spots to feature other NBC talent.
The company also recently completed a large-scale, comprehensive brand identity including strategy, design and a promotional campaign for Los Angeles-based Studio 4 Networks. Studio 4 Networks is an aggregator and distributor of educational and fitness programming, offered exclusively through Video On Demand (VOD).

Mega sought to solidify its position as a leader and trendsetter in the Greek market when it retained 3 Ring Circus to develop a new "look" that would push the boundaries of traditional network graphic design.
