(New York City & Philadelphia--April 8, 2013) ShootersINC -- a fully integrated content company -- has expanded its design and motion graphics capabilities by adding 2D/3D Artist Seddie Stone to the company’s creative roster. The announcement was made this morning by Creative Director Kris Magyarits, who welcomes Stone from ABC News in Philadelphia.
“We were blown away by Seddie’s talent when we met; it was kismet,” explains Magyarits. “He is an artist with amazing skills, who really gets it, and has awesome 3D design talent. He has exceeded our expectations already.”
Raised in New York, Artist Seddie Stone came to Philadelphia and graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with a BS Degree in Media Arts & Animation. His love for art began with comics. He always knew he wanted to be an artist, and is inspired artistically by music. Stone believes strongly that music can drive design. He is always learning new techniques and challenging himself. He began his career at Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia and then joined ABC News affiliate WPVI. While at ABC, Stone designed news packages, special programming, promotional pieces, as well as merchandise and logos.
“I am so lucky to be working with so many wonderful, creative, enthusiastic people here at ShootersINC,” says Stone. “Everyone is so talented. They have given me the chance to expand my horizons as an artist. I’m already working on a diversity of projects, which is inspiring.”
“We have been growing the ShootersINC design and motion graphics team for several years now,” explains Anne Marie Starker, Vice President of Business Development. “We have been adding a series of amazing artists, and are happy to welcome Seddie to our team.”
“Seddie’s talent as an artist fits into our company’s strategy of integrating our New York- based and Philadelphia talent and facilities,” concludes Ray Carballada, President of ShootersINC. “Seddie has already been chosen to work in New York on a few jobs. That doesn’t surprise me at all.”
For ShootersINC, Stone has already contributed his talent to a series of projects including a spot for Fox Chase Cancer Center. He is currently working away on a series of projects for the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, in anticipation of the new baseball season this spring.
