MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA — Squeak E. Clean Studios (www.squeakeclean.com), which has a network of facilities in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Sydney and Melbourne, has added sound designer Ryan Dickinson to the new Melbourne studio. Dickinson has over 15 years of international audio production experience, working for top advertising agencies, including Ogilvy, Saatchi and Colenso BBDO. His credits include work for Samsung, Adidas, Coca-Cola, Burger King, EA Games and Gameloft.
At Oglivy, his sound design and mixing for the “Do You Care Enough to Be A Cop” campaign earned several Effie Awards. In addition to his successful career in sound design and audio mixing, Dickinson is a sought-after musical talent, having been been commissioned to remix artists like Grammy Award-winner Gotye and The Crystal Method. Most recently, he lent his skills as one half of the production duo Otosan, producing house music hits with appearances on the US Billboard Dance Charts, NZ Charts, and Aria Club Charts. Their work has taken in over 2 million streams on Spotify in the past year.
“We put the call out for an experienced sound designer with a love for their craft to join our Melbourne team, and excited to say that after a rather exhaustive search, Ryan is that artist,” explains managing director Hamish Macdonald. “With a passion for both talent direction and sound creation, Ryan also has an incredible knowledge of music, which suits him perfectly to work alongside our in-house composers to create impactful soundscapes for our clients.”
“I’ve been keeping an eye on Squeak E. Clean Studios since its inception in Australia, and am well aware of the great reputation for outstanding work that [they] have in the industry,” says Dickinson. “After having spent a few years working abroad at audio post studios in Auckland and Amsterdam, I am thrilled to return back to my home country and very excited for the journey that's to come with the whole Squeak E. Clean Studios team!”
