Hinge Digital was founded by world class animation and visual effects artists Alex Tysowsky, Michael Kuehn and Roland Gauthier.
In 2009, the three decided that it was time to settle down in the animation hub of Portland, OR which conveniently happens to be an astonishingly beautiful and cool place to live. It was a perfect time to settle in to raise their families So they came together and opened an office in NW Portland and started building and animating.
Since opening, Hinge has brought characters to life for numerous brands including Adidas, Intel, Nike, Cox Communications, Microsoft, Carfax, Carrington College, Merck, UPS Stores, hhgregg and Minute Maid. Our expertise includes storyboarding, animatics, full character and look design, through animation, motion graphics to final finish.
The partners and key players are deeply involved in every character created and story told at Hinge, ensuring that all their years of experience are visible on every frame.
