Our Values, Our Mission and Goal
We take great pride in our commitment to quality and attention to detail while also embracing the beauty of imperfection. We are strong believers in the charm and character of motion. After all, to animate means “to infuse with a soul”.
The art of animation combines elements from a host of disciplines: Psychology, anatomy, physics, just to name a few. It is ever so versatile and powerful in its expression. For instance, it also lends itself to humour, which we love.
Our passion lies in harnessing this immense potential of animation to create unforgettable experiences, engage your audience and strike a strong connection between them and you.
Constantly looking for ways of improving the overall audiovisual experience, we offer new perspectives on any given idea as potential options.
After giving it a good stir, we return to convergent thinking, staying true to the message and follow the directive without getting carried away.
Responsiveness and timely deliveries are absolute key in the swift-paced advertising industry. We guarantee them.
We are happy when the client is happy. And we like to be “ecstatically happy” rather than “OK happy”. Therefore, we don’t want to deliver just an “OK product”, but passionately seek to exceed expectations.
Venture to the lofty heights of Port Moody, where technological devices collaborate to craft creative works.
To keep your projects secure, we are prepared for hardware failure as well as power outages, with triple backups located in various places. Be our guest!
Spin Animation, that’s Simon Piniel and a vast creative network. Simon is a master of visual storytelling with a special ability to convey information simple and clear, but entertaining nonetheless.
Simon grew up in Switzerland and graduated in Visual Communications from the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), specialising in Film and TV. He also studied animation at ECUAD in Vancouver and grasped the opportunity to work on popular TV shows in local cartoon studios as storyboard artist and animator. He finally settled in the Canadian city with his own company, still working mostly for Swiss clients. In addition to the commissions, he also wrote and directed a number of his own shorts. Some earned him numerous prizes (even first!) at festivals worldwide – as well as an award by the BAK, the Swiss Department for Culture. Co-founding aktzeichnen.ch is also among his accolades.
His sources of inspiration include his family, nature, art, and road cycling.
“Simon took not only the time to understand our products and specifications completely, but he came up with super creative ways of incorporating our brand and making an otherwise boring subject entertaining.”
Fabiola Ruiz Ortega P.Communication Strategist, Leisure Baths Ltd
