HUSH is pleased to announce the addition of art director and design and concept development artist Andre Salyer to its ranks. Salyer, whose multidisciplinary approach cuts across every component of experimental, interactive, and moving-image platforms, will guide HUSH’s team of designers, developers, and architects on behalf of clients.
“Looking over Andre’s shoulder and watching him work is an incredible experience,” explained HUSH Creative Partner David Schwarz. “His design toolkit is broader than most, allowing him to move effortlessly between 3D, 2D, interface, graphic design, typography, motion, film, and photography. In that way, Andre fits the creative mold we’ve built here at HUSH, where we seek out people with broad creativity and boundless skillsets.”
Prior to joining the crew full-time, Salyer freelanced at HUSH eventually becoming a critical component of the studio’s lauded slate of Nike work in 2012, including art direction on the Camp Victory experience and work on campaigns for Nike’s Flywire, Nike+, and FuelBand projects. He was also a core contributor to an interactive kiosk deployed to Abu Dhabi on behalf of one of the studio’s large energy clients, utilizing acrylic blocks as physical interactive inputs, sonic interface design, and dynamic data display.
Salyer has also spent time freelancing and working with well-known motion design studios Stardust, Brand New School, Blind, Psyop, Buck, Superfad, Various Studios, 1st Ave Machine, and Hornet, turning out advertising work for Microsoft, O2, Chase, HTC, Estée Lauder, Exxon, Chevy Sonic, and Jack Daniels, as well as award-winning music videos for Yeasayer and Gnarls Barkley.
Currently, Salyer is already at work on several HUSH projects, including an interactive retail environment experience, as well as interactive exhibition spaces, visual identity work, and a live data sculpture for a world leaders summit.
The move follows the recent hire of Lead Technical Producer Eric Alba, and Animator/Designer James Zanoni.
