FEATURING: Jim Bull
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL MISSION?
All I want to do is make people stop in their tracks and internalize their thoughts because of something I’ve created. Art, architecture, design, film and music all have the ability to do this. I referred to it as making objects or experiences that ‘oscillate’ in the world – I suppose that is what I’m trying to do; make things that stand out from the norm.
HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
We create things that stand out – firstly it's important to know that I hate traditional silos - Design, Illustration, Brand, Photography Art, Film, and Music. I find it strange to want to bracket yourself in that way or limit yourself in that way. Moving Brands was set up to be de-siloed – or at least we push to be.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT TO DATE?
It's been an exciting year. Moving Brands partnered with Netflix in the crafting of their new logo. We collaborated with DeviantArt in a massive rebranding as well as the design of a new revolutionary app. And most recently, we worked with Housing.com as their lead creative partner to create a brand narrative, identity system, and brand language.
ANY PERSON YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT TO IN THE INDUSTRY?
My mom and dad for letting me try to turn drawing into a career. And, Ben Wolstenholme (my Co-Founder) for always believing that, that fat guy had something special – I'm still not sure he is or was ever right about that ;)
HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT ADHESIVE?
Aki Shelton and James Trump, my creative leads in the San Francisco studio. They had attended a previous event and said I should pop along – so I attended the second most react event in San Francisco. The venue was super local, being only a few doors up from our studio in our local bar.
