Press Release by Pixomondo:
Los Angeles, CA -- David Garber has joined international visual effects company Pixomondo as Executive Producer of Motion Graphics where he will head up the newly formed design division in the Los Angeles office, one of Pixomondo’s 11 studios around the world. With extensive experience in the motion graphics field, Garber will be focusing on the creation of main titles and graphics for feature films and commercials as well as mixed media projects and graphic VFX.
“I am always on the lookout for new and interesting ways for Pixomondo to grow,” said Thilo Kuther, Pixomondo founder and CEO. “We have been very involved in the motion graphics and mixed media fields through some of our international offices but haven’t really yet focused on projects in the U.S. David understands the artistic potential in these arenas and has the background to execute amazing work.”
“Pixomondo was a natural fit for me. Thilo and I both come from the worlds of architecture and design so we have similar aesthetic sensibilities,” said Garber. “Pixomondo is a very flexible, fluid company that is creatively attuned to what is going on in the industry. They can adjust to projects of varying magnitude because of their superstructure of render farms and talent around the world. Motion graphics and especially mixed media projects hold infinite creative possibilities so it’s great to have access to such extensive resources.”
Garber is in the process of building out a dedicated team of artists and designers that will also contribute to feature film and commercial projects as needed. Throughout his career, Garber has worked on main titles for over 60 projects including Watchmen, The Bee Movie, John Adams, and has done commercials for high-profile clients including Ubisoft, Acura, Tylenol, Nissan, McDonalds and AT&T.
Prior to joining Pixomondo, Garber was the Executive Producer and Head of Production at Rok!t Studio where he oversaw the design and creation of main title sequences, promos and trailers along with graphic effects for feature films, television and commercials. While at Rok!t, he worked on the main titles for Captain America, Gulliver’s Travels, Michael Jackson’s This Is It, Tosh.0 and Never Say Never, among other projects.
Garber has also held producing positions at yu+Co; Framework Studio, Creative Domain; Kaleidoscope; Pittard, Sullivan, Fitzgerald; and Universal Studios. He holds a Masters of Environmental Design from Yale University’s School of Architecture and a Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon.
