Graphic Design in digital media is work that is created using an electronic device, including but not limited to, a computer, phone or tablet.
Digital Media Art is artwork created using specified software on a digital platform. At Escapist Entertainment, we are fluent in the following digital media and motion graphics creation and presentation software: After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Final Cut, Premiere Pro, WIX Web Platform, Instagram and have a working understanding of Wordpress, Madmapper, and Modul8.
We have created graphic collateral for apparel, print advertising, digital marketing and social media campaigns, programs, logos, web site design, tickets and more.
We focus on three of the five main areas of stage design; Projection, Set and Lighting Design.
Projection Design is the creation and integration of still images, video and motion graphics into live performances in a variety of artistic disciplines. Projection Mapping isolates content to specific regions of physical structures to create illusions of depth and shape. At Escapist Entertainment, we are fluent in the following software used to create effective and dynamic mapped projection designs: Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Final Cut, Premiere Pro, Isadora, QLab, TouchDesigner and WATCHOUT Playback control. We have a working knowledge of Unreal Engine, Madmapper, Modul8, Millumin, and Blender.
Set Design consists of all the scenery, furniture and props the audience sees at the production of live performance. The set designer's job is to design these physical surroundings in which the action will take place. Set props like furniture, draperies, circus equipment and decorations are the types of things that complete the set and are integral to a good stage design.
Fluent in SketchUp and have a working understanding of Blender and Vectorworks
Lighting Design is responsible for creating the lighting, atmosphere, and time frame for a production in response to the content of the performance, while keeping in mind issues of visibility, safety, and cost. The Lighting Designer also works closely with the stage manager or show control programming, if show control systems are used in that production. Outside stage lighting, the job of a Lighting Designer can be much more diverse and they can be found working on rock and pop tours, corporate launches, art installation and on massive celebration spectaculars.
We offer a variety of consulting services to those in the worlds of theatre and graphic design.
