About Our Craft & Approach
We are a creative production studio representing a diverse range of hand-picked directors and illustrators, crafting live-action, animation, mixed-media and illustration styles for TVCs, online content, OOH/DOOH and more.
Our team of fiercely talented artists and producers from all backgrounds and walks of life bring our similarities and differences together to bring to life creative concepts that exceed client expectations for every brief. Our collaborative approach is not something we practice internally only, NERDs work closely with our clients too, from the early development stages of the production process to create a bespoke look and feel for the brand, something instantly recognisable! We are flexible in our workflows and approach to ensure the highest creative quality output on each and every one of our carefully crafted visuals, that we can altogether be proud of.
We’re proud of our talent for regularly winning awards for their work including D&AD, BAA, BTAA, Promax, Creative Circle, LIAA and many more.
Our mission: Diversity & Inclusion
We strongly believe that nurturing talent and championing diversity are the key ingredients to producing powerful visuals that stand out, engage and communicate with our global audiences in a relevant and relatable way. That's why we are active diversity and inclusion advocates, constantly seeking, nurturing and empowering young talent, female talent and talent from under-represented backgrounds. Our goal is to help change and reshape our industry to be a more diverse and inclusive one, today, tomorrow and for future generations to come.
NERD's talent all share one key ethos - create work that empowers, inspires and promotes equality and tolerance. We are members and supporters of organisations such as Free the Bid, OWNED and more.
Our seasoned as well as up & coming talent are constantly working together to fight the current diversity statistics. Setting out with the intention and ambition of nurturing and empowering talent from ALL backgrounds, NERD was born.
“I never had female role models in animation and advertising, I also didn’t notice more than a handful of ethnic individuals in senior positions or those that came from ‘non-traditional’ backgrounds. Bearing in mind that I’m all of those things, my inspiration stemmed from many male-dominated meetings and my fondness for craft and filmmaking. Together with our male counter parts - there is no reason why we can't make the industry a more equal one for all talent!" Milana Karaica, Founder
