In her new position, Ashkenazi-Eldar will spearhead the formation of the new department within The-Artery that will focus on design and branding. She is developing in-house design capabilities to support the Company's VFX, Experiential and VR & AR content, as well as website development. Looking to the future, Ashekanzi-Eldar and her team are also looking for innovative and design-based clients who are interested in working with The-Artery on creating unique projects revolving around branding, motion and art.
Regarding the hiring of Ashkenazi-Eldar, Deborah Sullivan, EP and Managing Director for The-Artery, said, "Liron is a truly gifted and highly talented artist whose addition to the company helps steer us in a new direction. Having her on board gives us more creative opportunities - and we are better positioned to work with clients who are specifically looking for branding and design-focused strategies. Liron will oversee this new department, also providing motion graphics, print and social campaigns."
Adds Ashkenazi-Eldar, "I am very excited to be offering The-Artery's existing and future client base something new - the design side of things. While we've been well established for many years in the areas of production and VFX, our Design Team can now bring a new dimension to our company. We are seeking brand clients with strong identities so that we can offer them exciting, new, and even weird creative solutions that are not part of the traditional branding process. That's not how we're going to do that here! We will be taking a completely new approach to branding - providing imagery that is more emotional and more personal, instead of just following an existing protocol. Our goal is to provide a highly immersive experience for our new brand clients."
