Mainframe Ent. Inc. has launched a full service Creative Services division that will specialize in all areas of graphic design, motion graphics, titling, opening sequences and branding. The first project of the newly-expanded division will be an alliance with McLean Mashingaidze-Greaves to design the new website for the popular TV Series PINK PLANET, which airs on CityTV, Vancouver. Pinkplanet.tv will feature e-commerce, video blogs and wi-fi based social networking. In addition, the division is working with IDT Ent. on logos and branding for the highly anticipated MASTERS OF HORROR and MASTERS OF SCI-FI film anthologies.
"Mainframe's goal has always been about delivering top-quality animation and imagery," said Joanne Bondoc, manager of Creative Services. "With this new Creative Services group, we will have more resources and a larger team of extraordinary talent to meet the graphics, design, and branding needs of producers, media companies, networks and broadcasters."
Mainframe's Creative Services department will bring together the talent behind an impressive list of past and present Mainframe projects and clients. Their portfolio already includes titles for Sony Pictures Television, logos, graphics and branding for the MTV Movie Awards, product packaging for NBC, main titles for Mattel's animated productions and branding for Bell's MAKING THE CUT on CBC.
