ACME Brand Studio is a creative collaboration between Shannon Hallare , Sean Brunson and Tim Fisher who worked together for years and decided to venture out to start a company that shared their passion for branding and for life. Their goal is to connect with their clients and with each other. To pursue the work they love doing and to have the freedom to enjoy life and the work they create. Basically, The New American Dream!
When Sean asked me to take the corporate photos for the ACME team, he kept referring to the photos I’ve done for the Traveling One show. They didn’t want to do anything corporate or traditional . When he said “do whatever you want, we trust you” …well, like they said in Jerry Maguire, “you had me at hello”
We spent a couple of hours in the Orlando Downtown industrial areas. We talk, joked around and look for cool locations to take pictures at. I wanted to capture them as organically as possible. To let them interact in a as much of an uncontrolled setting possible trying to reflect the vibe of their company vision.
We grab a few beers afterwards and talked for a couple of hours. I was inspired by; Their vision for their business as a unit and as a sum of its parts. Their personal journeys that played a roll in their venture and coming together. The mix of talents that complemented each other. They seems as the perfect fit for each other.
You can feel a youthful like energy around them and I am glad to partake on it somehow.
Part of their mission statement…
“ACME stands for innovation, creativity, fun and most importantly, honesty. We love art and its power in helping to establish own-able and unique positions that separate brands from their competition. Brands need heroes, champions. We accept.”
