Carbon VFX Signs Design Director Leo Nguyen
From the release:
Creative studio Carbon VFX is proud to announce the addition of award-winning Design Director Leo Nguyen. Nguyen joins the company with an impressive skillset that spans across art direction, illustration, 3D, motion graphics and editing. Prior to Carbon VFX, Nguyen spent two years at Light of Day as Design Director and, eventually, Creative Director. During his time at the creative studio, he led the company’s massive rebrand creating a new logo, website and identity.
Nguyen’s considerable talents have proved invaluable in everything from branding to commercials, short films, music videos and broadcast promos. Recently he completed a manifesto for Royal Canin pet food and the animated Christmas short Window Washer for DDB NY, as well as The Big Picture, a collection of shorts scored by acclaimed jazz musician David Krakauer. Nguyen also directed a series of memorable broadcast promos for the 54th and 55th Grammys and Australia’s Next Top Model.
“We are excited to have Leo join us as design director,” comments New York Executive Producer/Partner Frank Devlin. “We know he will bring a dynamic and fresh perspective to our creative team, clients, and work.”
Over his design career, Nguyen has been honored with an impressive five PromaxBDA Awards: one International Rocket Award for Best Up-and-Coming Broadcast Designer and four for his design work on hit Australian TV shows Cricket Superstar and Slide. A skilled director, Nguyen’s short film Paper Boats & Paper Planes was also an official selection at the Sydney International Film Festival in 2010.
