Martin Warszawski

artin is a recent grad from ACAD. This animation was recently unveiled as part of the GIRAF Animation Festival. In Martin's words "This is an animation that I produced for a three month residency called the "Quicktrack" program. We were employed to create an animation that functions as a loop, is at least 90 seconds, and will be projected at a large scale. I was inspired by classic Japanese movies and graffiti art. After completion 6 Degrees sound studio scored the sound."

Thomas Porostocky

rom ACAD grad Thomas Porostocky's website: Previously the creative lead at the magazines I.D. and Seed, I currently run a multi-disciplinary studio here in New York City. While ever flexible, the work focuses mostly on art-direction, identity/branding, and infographics. Some of my career highlights include being included in Print Magazine's Top 20 Under 30 selection, getting the chance to captain the highly respected I.D. magazine, and having my work included in a Milton Glaser book and exhibit. Multi-disciplinary is a very apt description for Thomas, check out his range of creative endeavors on his website:
