Hue&Cry has welcomed Sean McClintock as the company’s new Creative Director. The studio has received significant recognition lately for its award-winning “Power of a Box” campaign for humanitarian organization CARE, as well as a stop-motion title sequence for “Creativity,” which earned the studio a Pencil at the D&AD Awards in London.
“We are thrilled to bring Sean onto our team,” says Hue&Cry’s Magnus Hierta, who founded the creative studio three years ago in Richmond, Virginia. “He is an incredibly talented Creative Director and artist, a true heavy hitter. The recognition and accolades our studio has received lately for our work has enabled us to attract high caliber talent like Sean. We are so grateful that after three years, our hard work is really starting to be noticed. Diving right in, Sean has already been instrumental in pitching and landing a new Oreo project that we are in the midst of collaborating on now.”
A very well known and highly respected artist, Sean McClintock brings nearly 20 years of varied experience to his new role as Creative Director at Hue&Cry. Originally from Kansas, Sean is a graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado, where he initially studied painting and illustration, but then focused on graphic design. He began his career in San Francisco at an interactive, digital agency designing web sites and quickly became a Creative Director, developing workflows, on the forefront of the implementation of Flash 2.0, After Effects and eventually Cinema 4D. Sean shifted his focus from interactive to motion design, and moved to France, freelancing for U.S.-based companies. His return to New York several years later embarked him on a successful freelance career, which saw him collaborate at the best agencies and studios in the industry, including Buck, Psyop, Hornet, Imaginary Forces, Block & Tackle and Gretel, to name a few. http://www.seanmcclintock.tv
“I am truly so impressed by the team here at Hue&Cry,” concludes McClintock. “Everyone here is so talented and driven. What they’ve manage to build in such a short time is kind of amazing.”
