Brand New School has added Gerald Mark Soto to its NY studio in the role of animation director.

Soto has made a name for himself over the last 20 years through design, animation, and direction for commercial, experiential, broadcast, and film projects. He’s known for his creative inventiveness, versatility and problem-solving ability. A true professor in and outside the studio, Soto continues to teach and mentor in the graphic design department at the School of Visual Arts, as he has for over a decade.

Soto has earned recognition and awards over his career for work with brands including Nike, American Express, The New York Times, Samsung, Squarespace, Apple, and---frequent BNS client---Google. Some of Soto’s most recent content includes leading the BNS animation team for Google’s CES 2020 presence.  The massive delivery included the tech giant’s content for a 70-foot tall custom-built screen headlining the Google Playground. Soto led the 2D animation team, developed and directed the motion language for all the graphics utilized throughout the animation process, and animated a configuration of products on one of the largest exterior screens in North America.
