Antenna Creative’s founders are creative directors Lucas Christman and Jarik van Sluijs, and motion graphics artist/live action producer Alexandra Hancock. Collectively, the team has many years of experience, ranging from renowned work in the field of title sequence design to groundbreaking broadcast design packages, and from pioneering motion picture marketing campaigns to forward-thinking brand experiences.
The work of Christman, van Sluijs and Hancock has been seen around the world - on screens large and small - across all media platforms. Some of their past clients include Amazon, Netflix, Marvel, Warner Bros., Universal, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate. Their work was also seen in the 2018 feature films Bad Times at the El Royale and Uncle Drew. Antenna’s current brand clients include Audi, Pepsi, Chevy and SoundFi.
The comany’s first project was a new corporate logo design for Lantern Entertainment, the production company which absorbed and acquired the titles formerly produced by The Weinstein Company. In addition to the new corporate logo, Antenna also created Lantern’s theatrical animated reveal, which can be seen in the opening credits for the 2019 film The Upside, starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart.
“For the creation of our new corporate identity, we were seeking an agency that could meld the aesthetic and special kind of ‘glow’ that we all associate with going to the movies, along with a ‘digital feel’ that represents today’s ‘age of streaming,’” explains Matthew Cohen, executive VP, marketing/creative affairs, for Lantern Entertainment. “Antenna was the only agency that was able to deliver that for us. They have the talent to interpret their clients’ vision without regurgitating what they’ve been told – they bring their own inspiration to the table. I greatly enjoy dealing with artists who take pride in what they do, and the people at Antenna are lovely, easy-going, and warm. They respect their clients and never forget they’ve been hired to solve a problem. Their work is exciting and quite beautiful.”
Additionally, the Antenna team also just completed the main title design sequence for the new feature film Miss Bala. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, the film stars Gina Rodrigues, as Gloria, a woman who finds a power she never knew she had, after she becomes drawn into a dangerous world of cross-border crime.
