and animated a sophisticated logo with an abstract waveform element.

Brad Graber Design
I always loved to draw. I grew up drawing comic book heroes with pencil and paper from my earliest days until I was in college. I studied TV Production and minored in art at Oklahoma Baptist University (TV Production Mecca, in case you haven’t heard). Just before graduation,
the university bought a NewTek Video Toaster. I was hooked, and immediately knew that pixels would be in my future.
After working for small post production house in Tulsa, I moved to Northern Virginia,
where I began working on an SGI with Alias PowerAnimator (v.4). After a year of
working with clients such as The Discovery Channel, Fannie Mae, The US Army,
etc. I left for the warmer waters of Florida. I landed at the Golf Channel, where I
was impressed with their use of motion capture and high end equipment. I was also
impressed that they were willing to pay me to make cool on-air graphics.
During the past 24 years, I have freelanced for multiple companies working on a wide range of 3D/2D projects. See my demo reel and still samples above (if you haven't already).
I currently reside with my family in the Central Florida area, just minutes from the beach.
When I’m not surfing or skateboarding with my kids, I’m jamming on my electric guitars. Life is good!
What I Do
I love to create, enhance, bring to life, inform, entertain, and to elighten. Whether through graphics, photography, video, or music, I love making something out of nothing.
Distinguishing your product, service, or concept so that it can be easily recognized and trusted.
Communicating visually and solving problems through the use of type, space, image and color.
Bringing your ideas to life through motion
I don't really do this, but sometimes I like to think that I do.
Do you need help with your project? Shoot me an email. I'm a nice guy, and I might even make you laugh.
