New Feature: nailgun* Interview

Recently, I had a phone conversation with nailgun* co-founders Michael Waldron (Creative Director) and Erik van der Wilden (Director of Editorial and Animation). We chatted about their backgrounds, looked at the process behind their work and discussed sundry topics related to motion graphics and broadcast design. The result is a candid look inside the brains of a studio that has created a strong body of high-profile work for both broadcast and commercial venues.

justin –

i am always the one who enjoys or sometimes disagree with your postings silently.  but this time i want to thank you for sharing an one-on-one interview with a design company that  have design and business integrity. 

i have been fortunate enough to freelance at this studio, Michael and Erik and their team are truely one of the most collaborative and supportive people.  their zero tolerance level for divas was apparent when i was there and from reading this article, they are still practicing what they preach by giving shout-outs to other fantastic design shops.  they must really be comfortable with their positioning in this industry to share an interview spotlight.

keep up the good work on your site.
