Welcome to NERD! We love your well considered and respectful creative concept. We jump at any concept that allows us to use our skillset & craft to change the world into a better, more tolerant and inclusive environment. We have actually worked on many mental health awareness spots, including the award winning Mindful spot that changed the course of how mental health is tackled for young males in the UK.
One of our mental health advocates and incredibly talented NERD, Harriet Macdonald is the perfect director to bring to life these spots, in a cinematic as well as authentic and real approach. Her empathy, sensitivity and ability to tackle these challenging areas & subjects has lead her to making films that have had a positive impact on audiences as well as raised awareness around the world. See spots below for Royal British Legion and domestic abuse short film both commissioned to draw attention to subjects that we don't usually know how to tackle due to their complexity.
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 Directors, Illustrators and Producers from all backgrounds and walks of life bring our similarities and differences together under one roof 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 strongly believe that nurturing talent and championing diversity are the key ingredients to producing powerful visuals that stand out, engage and communicate with real people across the world. 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 or inspires and promotes equality and tolerance. We are members and supporters of organisations such as Free the Bid, OWNED and more.
