Press Release from Blind
Blind has significantly bolstered its creative motion design division with the hiring of world-class talent Mark Bellncula. With a portfolio that includes work for MTV, Atom TV, HP, Avon, BET, Snapple and SKYY Vodka, he is a respected veteran with more than 20 years in the motion design business.
Bellncula's consistently excellent work has earned numerous awards, particularly his efforts for Comedy Central, which included a BDA for his creative work on South Park's 10th anniversary. He also developed the innovative motion design for the network's 2005 redesign, which BDA honored that same year.
"As we continue to grow our bicoastal operation, Mark is the prototype that we are seeking: creative, enthusiastic and experienced," noted Blind EP Nick Litwinko. "He works with an incredible energy and we're happy to be working with him." Litwinko added that Bellncula has already contributed to standout projects for Showtime, Fuse, and Chili's since joining Blind.
Prior to joining Blind, Bellncula worked for a number of notable New York studios, including Superfad, Interspectacular and Trollback.
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. In 2010, Blind took home a Creative Arts Emmy for their work on The Raveonette's Heart of Stone music video, as well as a Gold London International Award for the stunning Dr. Martens motion graphics piece, Lilac Wine.
