GET AN EYEFUL OF NEXUS DESIGN STUDIO.
23 February 2023

What do you call a design studio run by Nexus? Erm, Nexus Design Studio, of course. Led by creative director Harry Butt, NDS are all about motion design, typography, CG, and brand identities, with enough multidisciplinary talent to nail any brief.

Like Nexus Studios, NDS are based in London, Los Angeles, and Sydney. This ensures the right talent is matched to the right project, as Butt also has a legion of global collaborators to draw upon. No wonder the digital whizz describes his new gig as "a bit like cheating".

Harry Butt.  

The Grimsby native adds: "After running my own small animation studio and having the time to experiment over the years, I'm excited to use the well-oiled machine of Nexus Studios to facilitate the weird ideas, the sleek slick motion design, and the off-kilter 3D spots in a quick, agile, responsive manner."


Harry brings his unique vision and leadership to this new team and an ability to collaborate with the incredible talent at Nexus.

CCO Chris O'Reilly shares his new man's enthusiasm: "Nexus Design Studio is an exciting creative offering that offers a new way for us to work with our clients, in parallel to our world-class roster of directors. Increasingly we've seen demand from our clients to work with us in a creative director-led way and with design as the solution."


"Many of our clients seek greater long-term partnerships and a deeper understanding of their unique day-to-day needs—Nexus Design Studio now formalises that process," O'Reilly says. "Harry brings his unique vision and leadership to this new team and an ability to collaborate with the incredible talent at Nexus. We think this is an apt and timely addition to how we can work with our clients."
