Nexus Studios Announces Launch of Nexus Design Studio

Nexus Studios announces the launch of Nexus Design Studio led by creative force, Harry Butt.

Nexus Design Studio is a design studio firmly rooted in motion, providing a home to bold graphic aesthetics and typography. With access to a host of world-class talent including directors, animators, designers, immersive experts and everything in between already working in the London, LA, and Sydney offices, plus a vast network of expert artistic collaborators, Nexus Design Studio will be formed of bespoke creative teams, led by creative director, Harry Butt. This approach offers nimble responses to briefs with design-focused solutions, that can move freely across mediums, platforms and audiences. 

The new division dedicated to motion design from the BAFTA, Emmy and Cannes Grand Prix-winning global creative company, Nexus Studios, draws on the company’s core values, such as high-quality creative and premium experimentation, while also embarking on a mission to produce disruptive design-first campaigns for brands.

Spearheaded by creative director, Harry Butt, Nexus Design Studio aims to respond to client needs with agile and thoughtful creative solutions. Services include crafting typographic-led motion design, CG product films and bespoke motion brand identities.

Harry brings with him an extensive multi-discipline portfolio. Described as a “Jack of all trades and master of them too” by It’s Nice That, his aesthetic is informed by hypnotic motion, clean silhouettes, and colourful design. His exploration across technique with digital and animation tools has resulted in a body of work that is simultaneously experimental and satisfying. Previous clients include Nike, Boiler Room, Sony Music, Instagram and Chloé.

Chris O’Reilly, co-founder and chief creative officer, Nexus Studios, said: “Nexus Design Studio is an exciting creative offering that offers a new way for us to work with our clients, in parallel to our world-class roster of directors. Increasingly we've seen demand from our clients to work with us in a creative director-led way and with design as the solution. Many of our clients seek greater long-term partnerships and a deeper understanding of their unique day-to-day needs. Nexus Design Studio now formalises that process. Harry brings his unique vision and leadership to this new team and an ability to collaborate with the incredible talent at Nexus. We think this is an apt and timely addition to how we can work with our clients.”  

Harry Butt, creative director, Nexus Design Studio, said: “After running my own small animation studio and having the time to experiment over the years, I’m excited to use the well-oiled machine of Nexus Studios to facilitate the weird ideas, the sleek slick motion design, the off-kilter 3D spots - in a quick, agile, responsive manner. Placed here with the raw talent of the studio at our fingertips it all feels a bit like cheating.”
