Why Spin Animation?
We are located in Metro Vancouver on the West Coast of Canada. If you’re in Central Europe, this means a time difference of +9 hours. Based on this situation we have established an elegant day-by-day workflow: As a rule, you will get results first thing in the morning, no later than 9:00 CET! – There will be no wondering and waiting for deliveries.
Not much has ever been achieved without commitment and dedication. We listen to you and care for your projects.
THE BIG PICTURE
We don’t just think outside the box, we also know there are multiple boxes, bags, bins, planets, possibly parallel universes. We expand ideas, approach from various angles, ask questions. Once the course is set, we aim to refine all components that make up the experience for maximum impact.
Many of our contacts have been established in real life. Being full time professionals, they are specialists in their respective fields and have a vetted success history, covering a vast field of creative solutions. – Together we bring you the most powerful and cost effective team capabilities!

How, where, who?
It is our second nature to always think outside the box and look for ways of improving the product on all levels. If you wish, we’ll provide new angles on any given idea and present them as suggestions.
After we give 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 fast lived advertising business. That’s understood!
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 exceed expectations.
In the upper regions of Port Moody, far above the last tip of the Burrard Inlet, is where the magic happens. Chips and screens and membranes in the service of art. Under the hood, our studio is backed up against power outage and hardware outage. And of course, we are running secure triple backups in multiple locations at all times. Your projects are safe. Be our guest!
Spin Animation, that’s Simon Piniel and a vast creative network. Simon embraces all aspects of animation: Picturing a story. Finding the best way to visualise it. Finally bringing it to the point by refining motion, timing and composition. A speciality of his is to convey information simple and clear, but entertaining nonetheless.
Simon graduated in Visual Communications at the HGK Zurich in 2000, specialising in Film and TV. Loving Vancouver, he pursued animation studies at ECUAD. Later, he came to work on popular TV shows in local cartoon studios as storyboard artist and animator. After a few years, he finally settled in the Canadian city with his own company. To this day, he’s working mostly for Swiss clients. He has also written and directed a number of shorts. Some have won him a number of 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 inspiration lies within his wife and kids, art and the active outdoors.
