Blind Makes Pacheco Reappear
Blind is known for making the impossible seem possible with their top-notch production and post work, but they may have pulled their best trick yet in bringing veteran Art Director Steve Pacheco back to Blind after a half-decade absence. Pacheco has a reputation for producing standout work for top agencies and brands, including recent high-profile projects for Windows 7 via Crispin Porter + Bogusky and United States of Tara for Showtime Networks. Pacheco has also done much-lauded work for NJ Cessation, Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth presentation, and TV Land's The Hand, as well as re-brands for TNT and Rhapsody via Troika and Exopolis respectively. Digital Kitchen, Shilo, Ant Farm, National Television, Transistor, Picture Mill, King and Country, and Royale are among the laundry list a-level companies with which he's collaborated. His work has been acknowledged by D&AD, Type Directors Club, Communication Arts magazine and BDA.
"As a freelance designer and former team member, Steve has contributed to some of our best, most groundbreaking work," Noted Blind EP Dave Klienman. "We'd been pursuing him as a full-time staffer for a while and were thrilled when he decided the time was right to make the relationship permanent. As we approach our 16th year of operation, we look forward to having his talents and participation."
Prior to rejoining Blind, Pacheco spent time freelancing and working at Buck. He launched his career at Imaginary Forces in 2000 after graduating from the Art Center College of Design.
Blind, a multi-disciplinary design, motion graphics, animation, visual effects, live-action, editorial, print and broadcast design studio with offices in Santa Monica and NYC, taps into diverse intellectual and creative resources to come up with compelling results. Since 1995, Blind has been pushing beyond the expected, offering clients a new way to see with award-winning design. A few things remain constant amidst this design/production powerhouse's constant drive to reinvent itself: the abilities to engender surprise and produce projects from conception to reality.
Blind's creative team has built an uncommon level of respect in the advertising and entertainment communities via cutting-edge campaigns for brands such as Xbox, Showtime, Bright House Networks, DirecTV, OppenheimerFunds, McDonald's, Scion, and recording artists including Gnarls Barkley, The Raveonettes and Justin Timberlake to name a few.
