bns. is the award-winning design and animation division of Brand New School. Our talents span the creative spectrum from design, motion graphics, and visual identity design to CG animation and visual effects.
We believe in the power of design and visual thinking fused with a highly collaborative creative process. Our staff is an ambitious group of creative directors, designers, animators, art directors, and visual effects artists; passionate about creating new visual languages and solving complex problems.
Brand New School is a creative community devoted to creating new forms of visual communication. Our company has produced award-winning commercials, integrated digital campaigns, interactive installations, web and mobile applications, games, art installations, brand identities and print communications.
Brand New School consists of three interconnected divisions; bns.(design & animation), bns.labs (interactive media), and bns.films (film/content production). This multidisciplinary alchemy enables us to create thoughtful solutions for clients across platforms and without boundaries.
Our process prizes collaboration, research, experimentation, failure, discovery, and laughter. We’ve been practicing these principles from our studios in New York and Los Angeles since 2000.
