The sounds of a design studio
We pride ourselves on thoughtfully different design. While we create work that looks beautiful, the buck doesn’t stop there. To be an O Street project, you’ve got to have character.
So when we created a new showreel strutting our stuff, we decided to pay special attention to the soundtrack. Even though the product is visual, the sound is the backbone. It’s the underlying support system that keeps the whole thing chugging along. How could we do something different? …
The Scottish musician and occasional Boston-Red-Sox-hat-wearing lad joined us in our Glasgow studio to capture the sounds of our design process.
Here’s what you’l l hear in our soundtrack:
– Furious sketchy scribbling
– iMac keyboard mashing
– Commuter bike squeaking
– Google Hangout shouts of ‘Good morning!’ from our Denver studio
– Friday beers cracking
– Various O-shouts and hollers, likely font-related
And of course, there’s the squeaky arm of our waving cat Boshi.
Bessa took all these unique sounds and mixed them into an original track, making the sound behind of our reel more than just an off-the-shelf electronic tune. The result? A banger of a showreel that’s thoughtfully different—kind of like us.
