Framestore’s Chicago office is pleased to announce the relocation of Designer Dan Solomon. Since opening in May 2017 Framestore’s Chicago office has been growing staff across all departments while garnering new partnerships within the Midwest region.
Dan Solomon is an American designer and animator with over nine years of experience working at various VFX studios in NYC, including Blind, Psyop, and Framestore’s New York office. He graduated from The School of Visual Arts in 2013 with a degree in Computer Art, Animation, and Visual Effects. He has a diverse skillset, with experience in motion graphics, 3D animation, compositing, photography, web design and web development.
Whilst at Framestore, he has worked on several notable design projects including the title sequence for the 2017 Semi Permanent Festival, The New York Times and General Electric’s ‘The Nature of Industry’, and Dell’s ‘Tech Stories’, winning a Cannes Lions Grand Prix for GE and gold at the 2017 AEAF Awards for Semi Permanent.
Framestore’s Design Studio is a highly-skilled collective made up of directors, designers and animators who collaborate with clients to deliver beautifully impactful work across all platforms. In addition to Dan, the Chicago office has also recently welcomed Senior VFX Designer Tim Sepulveda to further expand the newest outpost of Framestore’s global Design Studio. Framestore’s Chicago office is proud to bring exclusive talent from within Framestore whilst pulling top talent from within the Chicago design community.
“In the short time I’ve been here, it’s become apparent that Chicago is a beautiful and endlessly inspiring city that strives to push design forward,” Dan Solomon, CG Designer. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to take this inspiration and apply it to my work along with the creatives at Framestore, and I’m looking forward to contributing to Chicago's community of artists and designers.”
Moving from Framestore’s Design Studio in New York, Dan is welcomed in Chicago where he aspires to continue increasing his involvement with the global VFX and design communities. His role illustrates how integral the aesthetics and principles of design are to Framestore’s diverse offering, tying together the intricacies of visual effects and interactive media. The Design Studio is central to Framestore with infinite opportunities to marry the company’s capabilities. Framestore is delighted to extend their creative offerings to the Chicago market.
“Our Chicago office is comprised of Producers and Artists with extremely diverse portfolios who can work across multiple platforms, and Dan's artistry, creativity, and range of skills are an incredible addition to our growing offering,” says Krystina Wilson, Executive Producer. “From projection mapping to illustrative, concepting to VFX-driven design—Dan's talent knows no bounds, and we are incredibly lucky to have him permanently in Chicago with us.”
