Nickelodeon

Creator Driven

A Case Study.

challenge

How does Nickelodeon attract the next generation of superstar talent?

The Problem

 

Two decades after paving the way for groundbreaking animated programming, Nickelodeon needed to revitalize the creative energy within the studio—as well as attract the next generation of superstar writers, illustrators and animators.

Our Approach

 

Because Nickelodeon has no house style, their shows are a completely unvarnished reflection of the show runners, animators and writers. To attract new, vibrant talent, we worked with Nickelodeon to put their crazy, hilarious, inspiring personalities (past and present) on a pedestal to show that new voices can have an opportunity to shine.

The creators (and their creations) at Nickelodeon have brought a new perspective to adolescence and what it means to be a kid. Working to uncover the soul of the animation studios has been a huge thrill for all of us.

A 360° Brand Experience

 

Over the course of nearly five years and multiple projects, Struck helped create a new brand language and look for the studio—one which encompassed public spaces, a new website and content, a coffee table book, an archive box set and 25th anniversary museum exhibit.

 

Struck partnered with Studios Architecture and KSA to help brand the new studio facility both inside and out. Public art, sculptures, way finding, interior design and a branded interior that created an inspiring but functional environment.
