Title

A logo or mark is a graphical element with one purpose in mind - immediate recognition. Together with its logotype - a uniquely set and arranged typeface - we can create a unique trademark for a commercial brand. While we enjoy designing and creating logos and company marks, what we really love is to bring them to life in an animation or motion graphic/special effects. While some 3D companies may turn their noses at doing a "Flying Logo", we love 'em. Blending shapes, colors, fonts, and images along with sound and music we can bring a level of emotion and connection to your brand that is just not possible with ink on paper.

We also create motion graphics specifically for use in videos to create the illusion of motion or a transforming appearance. Our tools include such powerful programs as Adobe After Effects, Premiere, Flash and other 3D software programs that require serious processing power along with highly creative artists. Using the right blend of motion graphics (like just the right amount of spice in a recipe) can really enhance a video or multimedia presentation. While Hollywood made special effects famous, epic has made them affordable.




Two Men and A Truck TV Commercial

Two Men and A Truck TV Commercial
SilverRock Productions had a killer concept for a TV commercial for their client Two Men and a Truck - a moving company with a really unique logo. SilverRock hired epic to create storyboards of the commercial, then create some of the special effects needed. At the end of one of the spots, the movers toss their hats up in the air, and one hat emerges to present the logo to the viewer. Transitioning from video to 3D then 2D animation was a challenge, but I think you will agree we helped to create a "moving" piece (ugh)...


Media Inc. Logo Animation

Media Inc. Logo Animation
Media Inc. is a production company focused on reproducing CD and DVD ROMs. They needed a cool logo animation for a presentation they were about to make, and we needed some CD-ROM business cards...cue up the music. In a matter of just a few days, they had an awesome logo animation, and we were passing around interactive business cards designed to show examples of our work.


Lunchbox Animation

Lunchbox Animation
When the folks at KHOU TV (the CBS affiliate in Houston), needed a way to bring on the school report each morning, we came up with this concept of a bus arriving to pick up to the children, and at the end of the news report it would reverse. We also created an animated lunchbox for the same purpose.


Kids Interactive

Kids Interactive
When the Jamsa Press division of Gulf Publishing released the first four children's books in the Happy & Max series, the company had big plans for the books to become a syndicated TV show. For the show pilot, epic was called on to create an animated logo to be used at the start and end of each show. Although the TV shown was not to be, click on the icon to the right to see the animated logo we developed for them.


Excalibur Almaz

Excalibur Almaz
Excalibur Almaz Limited (EA) is a private, international space exploration company formed in 2005 and based in the British Isles in Isle of Man. The company was created to provide routine, affordable access to and from space for customers around the globe. Using updated and modernized proven legacy space systems and technology, EA plans to offer transportation for purposes of exploration, research, and science. Customers are expected to include private enterprises, educational organizations and international governments.
For the launch of their new web site, Almaz had epic create an animation teaser to introduce the upcoming web site. For the animation we used a model of their Excalibur space craft we created.


epic logo treatments

When we are between jobs, it is time to turn our attention to creating content just for us. Here are several logo treatments of the epic "e", a mark which has served us well since 1996.


Channel 11 Logos

Channel 11 Logos
Channel 11 (KHOU) in Houston, Texas wanted to see some conceptual designs for various station logo treatments. They hired us to do three, we did six and they ended up buying all of them. These logos were created using several 3D models we created specifically for this project.


Bus Arrival

Bus Arrival
When the folks at KHOU TV (the CBS affiliate in Houston), needed a way to bring on the school report each morning, we came up with this concept of a bus arriving to pick up to the children, and at the end of the news report it would reverse. The school bus animation was used for over 8 years by the station, and it was fun to see our work being used on TV several times each day.


Blue Magic

Blue Magic
The Blue Magic division of Rectorseal has been manufacturing automotive after care products for over 50 years. For many, their logo represents quality and a promise that the products will deliver as expected. Blue Magic needed their logo animated to introduce a series of new videos the company planned to launch on their web site. We decided to add a little magic of our own to this animated logo.
