Breakwater Studios by DesignStudio
Founded by filmmaker Ben Proudfoot in 2012, Breakwater Studios Ltd. is a digital film studio based in Los Angeles, California and Halifax, Nova Scotia. With all creative departments under one roof, Breakwater Studios is known worldwide for exceptionally crafted and deeply human stories.
Breakwater looked to DesignStudio for a refresh of their brand identity, infusing their founding principles into a new design system. We took things a step further, defining an ownable brand strategy and bringing the system to life across all mediums.
In defining the character of Breakwater’s brand, three core principles stood out — an attention to craft, a focus on personal stories, and a consistent sense of wonder. These principles helped establish the visual system and reinforced Breakwater’s ultimate purpose — preserving life’s work.
We structured our own process with the same attention to detail that Breakwater infuses in their production. Beyond the standard graphic elements, we also considered the space and environments in which they live.
