Editorial studio
continues to add to its post-production services as part of an overall
expansion.

CHICAGO— The Colonie, the boutique editorial
and post production studio, has added Senior Motion Graphic Designer Jennifer
Moody to its creative team. Moody will work alongside Senior Motion Graphics
Designer Lyndsay McCully,
who joined the company five years ago, in designing and producing graphic
elements for commercials and other projects.
The Colonie is growing its graphics capabilities in order to meet its
clients’ design needs and desire to consolidate their post-production work. “We
have been receiving more requests for design work,” explains executive producer
Mary Caddy, a partner and co-founder of The Colonie. “Agency creatives and
producers are pulled in many directions today, and they appreciate the
convenience of being able to do more of their work in one place while
maintaining high creative standards.” A specialist in creative editorial, The
Colonie also provides visual effects and on-line finishing services.

Moody arrives from
Foundation Content where she was a Senior Designer. She worked on design
elements for commercials, movie trailers and title sequences, music videos and
corporate media. Her advertising credits include such brands as Target, Hampton
Inn, Allstate, Applebee’s, State Farm and McDonald’s. Moody, who owns a
Master’s Degree in Studio Art from Ball State University, was first exposed to
motion graphics while working as an intern at MTV.
Having two designers on staff will allow The Colonie to take
on more, larger and more complex projects, according to editor Brian Sepanik,
who is also a partner and co-founder of The Colonie. “They can collaborate and
feed off each other creatively,” he says. Sepanik adds that prior to coming on
staff, Moody worked with The Colonie on several projects as a freelancer and he
and his colleagues were impressed by her creativity, energy and ability to work
with their team.
Moody is excited to join a company that is growing and
diversifying. “It’s a great opportunity to join another talented designer, be
part of a collaborative team, and build something great,” she says.
“Our number one priority is to do great work,” Moody adds.
“I enjoy collaborating with creatives from ad agencies and contributing my
talents to the bigger picture.”
Sepanik notes that The Colonie is not done growing. He
expects the graphics team to continue to expand and to eventually add 3D
capability. “We have no intention of becoming a one-stop-shop,” he says, “but
we have been successful in providing design services to our clients.  It makes sense to strengthen and grow that
and make our clients lives easier with services provided in-house.”
