SAN FRANCISCO — Brand experience agency Cogs & Marvel (http://cogsandmarvel.com) has added Brittnell Anderson as design director. He will collaborate with the agency’s US and Dublin teams to further expand and strengthen its ability to deliver impactful brand moments in physical spaces.
For much of his career, Anderson has excelled at navigating the line between design and technology, using his knowledge of 3D modeling, motion-graphics and effects, filming, editing, and emerging tech to help brands better connect with their audiences. At Cogs & Marvel, he will continue to leverage these skills to conceptualize, prototype, illustrate and develop events, spaces and experiences. This will also include the creation of materials for initial client presentations and refining experiential concepts to inform final design and implementation.
“I joined Cogs & Marvel because I really enjoy the brand experience space and feel it’s a very dynamic and varied area to be in, full of so much opportunity for rich media storytelling,” explains Anderson. “The potential clients and areas for exploration are nearly limitless. I was also drawn to the fact that here I’ll have the opportunity to have some real impact on our direction and growth.”
Before joining the West Coast hub, Anderson was a longtime design director & creative technologist at brand consulting and design agency Landor. There, he worked with a variety of clients on projects ranging from international brand launches to rapid internal prototyping and concept work. Most notably, he helped concept and create a recent AR-activated launch experience for Accenture’s Innovation Hub in India, and assisted in visualizing Accenture’s new office space within San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower.
He also co-founded the animation studio Cinematico, and created the Japan-based streetwear clothing line Numlok.
