Always with love and precision. Since 2006.
Calango is led by motion director / designer Jeroen Krielaars. Working with a trusted network of freelancers, Calango is able to work on projects of all scales. The approach is build up of three elements. Those elements rarely stand alone and mostly overlap quite a bit. They are well integrated and form the holy trinity of Calango.
First we look and listen. Then we give direction. From the heart and from the head. Good integration of your experience and our point of view are key to create outstanding work. Whenever necessary we orchestrate illustrators, animators, designers, cameramen, sound composers and actors.
A clear sense of aesthetics is at the core of our design process. We keep it simple, strong and consistent, but appreciate a touch of spontaneity. We make rules and break them here and there. A strong love for geometry and typography are large influences on our handwriting.
Motion is the fourth dimension that makes our work stand out. Motion design and graphic design are seamlessly integrated in our creative process. From branding to commercials. For TV, online or on stage. We make it move in a surprising and elegant way.
