The integration of the animation studio expands the content studio’s offerings to include design, graphics, and 2D and 3D animation.
Award-winning film editorial house PS260 has announced the acquisition of Ideas & Stuff, a Brooklyn-based design and animation studio headed by founder and creative director Marcos Pacheco. Through this addition, PS260 augments its capabilities in graphics, design, and 2D and 3D animation, enabling the content powerhouse to provide global clients with full-service offerings.
Pacheco founded Ideas & Stuff in 2005. With headquarters in Brooklyn, the animation studio has successfully delivered high-quality creative services to a diverse roster of clientele, from production studios to individuals, to advertising firms and agencies. Marcos is a versatile artist and master of both 2D and 3D design, and an expert in developing concepts and design for TV and film. Known for his keen eye for detail, breadth of technical skills, and passion for pushing creative boundaries, he has designed logos and graphics for clients including VH1, Gap, Nike, Champion, Levi’s, Harley Davidson, and the Food Network, and led creative collaborations with renowned brands including CNN, MTV, Discovery, Fila, and YouTube.
PS260 has worked with companies such as Google, Klarna, M&Ms, DraftKings, and Intel to create viral digital content, Super Bowl commercials, and Sundance films. Recent projects include Metallica’s music videos for their songs, ‘LUX ÆTERNA,’ and ‘Screaming Suicide’, edited by Matt Posey, Klarna’s ‘That’s Smooth’ campaign starring Paris Hilton and edited by Maury Loeb, and ‘Closing Dynasty,’ edited by Ashley Ingbretson, which took home the Audience Award for Narrative Short at SXSW. Their direct-to-client work includes collaborations with Titleist, Audible, Mailchimp, Meta, and Puma.
“PS260 is the perfect home for Ideas & Stuff, as they are true originals who have consistently delivered incredibly high quality by challenging the status quo and defying the expected and mundane,” says Marcos. “I’m thrilled to expand our services with the support of PS260, and help take their client experience to the next level.”
“Our clients increasingly seek out collaboration and ideation in the realm of graphics, wanting to co-create and refine concepts with us during the editing process,” says JJ Lask, editor and co-founder of PS260. “With Marcos as our executive creative director, and his team of talented artists by our side, we are positioned to be a comprehensive content studio that provides end-to-end design and creative services.”
