Dress Code Adds Animation Director Limbert Fabian To Its Roster

Production company Dress Code has added animation director Limbert Fabian to its roster for commercial representation across the U.S. and Canada.

Hailing from New York City with roots in the Dominican Republic, Fabian brings a wealth of experience as an illustrator and Emmy Award-winning creative director, boasting a diverse skill set across multiple disciplines. His journey began at the Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in illustration before delving into the world of film and animation. 

Fabian honed his expertise in visual effects and CGI animation, seamlessly blending his illustration prowess with a passion for storytelling. His passion lies in creating appealing character performances and crafting elegant camera work, as best demonstrated in Chipotle’s, “The Scarecrow” which he and Brandon Oldenburg directed at Moonbot Studios. “The Scarecrow” won a slew of advertising awards including a Cannes Lions, Clio, and two Daytime Emmy Awards.  

Notably, Fabian’s foray into virtual reality earned him a Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Emerging Media Program for “MLK: Now Is The Time” with Meta and Time Studios, underscoring his commitment to innovative storytelling. The project is an immersive experience that challenges audiences to re-examine Martin Luther King’s iconic speech, through a thought-provoking modern lens. 

Alongside fellow character-based directors on Dress Code’s roster, Vincenzo Lodigiani and Cecilia Fletcher, Fabian plans to continue expanding character and story-driven animation for work which the studio is known, collaborating with the creative team on select projects that leverage the production company’s mutual capabilities. His passion for blending technology, art, and design aligns seamlessly with Dress Code’s ethos, fostering an environment dedicated to experimentation and creativity. Currently, Fabian is developing a feature length film as half of InBetween, with long time collaborating partner Oldenburg, in order to tell stories in both traditional and immersive venues. 

Studio affiliations prior to Dress Code for Fabian include Moonbot and then a company he co-founded, Flight School. He also served as a founder/head creative at Wonder. 

Fabian commented, “I was immediately impressed by Dress Code’s work. Their high-quality productions and design aesthetic resonated with me. As a director, their boutique and intimate atmosphere felt like a great fit. Plus, being headquartered in New York City, my hometown where my family still resides, was an added bonus. It seemed like a serendipitous connection.”
