Cinereach, a New York City-based foundation created in 2006 by young filmmakers, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs, supports films that challenge, excite, innovate, offer new perspectives and inspire action.
Cinereach seeks to fix the film industry. Their assertion: under assault by new media, increasingly democratic means of production, and constantly evolving channels of distribution, the traditional film industry has become calcified and self-indulgent, failing to meet the needs of audiences and film-makers with equal aplomb. Upstart film makers and producers have been challenging the traditional models of filmmakers, making it clear that new perspectives on film making are not only welcome, but necessary.
Cinereach's increasing stature as an innovative and disruptive new presence on the film scene necessitated an evolved brand presentation. In 2009, Cinereach approached Method to deliver a complete organizational re-brand.
Working in close collaboration with the organization's founders, Method envisioned a new identity system specifically designed to carry Cinereach's mission and heritage forward while being a flexible system that would support the needs of this innovative, emerging creative non-profit.
Method created a brand system that allowed Cinereach to express and position itself as an organization within a crowded and undifferentiated landscape, as well as communicate the relative weight of its respective programs and key events. The resulting system was extended on to corporate identity, marketing, and print collateral, and online media, including the Cinereach corporate website, a portal featuring video and blog content, and their social media presences on Facebook and Twitter.
Method offers a rational and intuitive approach to solving complex brand challenges in all traditional and digital media.
Having partnered with Method to launch ViewChange.org in 2010, Link TV reengaged Method to design an intuitive iPad news application that would allow readers to explore the rich library of international television news, raw videos, and documentaries curated by the seasoned journalists at Link TV.
As video viewing experiences extend across an increasing number of platforms and devices, Channel 5 needed to think about how to present its on-demand content in a consistent and scalable manner.
Working closely with Turner Sports, Method designed the March Madness on Demand (MMOD) produts which included an online destination, iPhone and iPod Touch app, and for the first time, an iPad app.
Renowned industrial design firm, Whipsaw, needed a refresh of their portfolio website to reflect who they are - a cutting edge, visionary, and creative industrial design and engineering agency.
