I am a designer, animator and coder with a background in architecture.
I make things for interactive environments, physical spaces, and film.
I believe the most powerful things are experienced and evocative experiences create connections to everything, especially ourselves.
Memory transcends trend, affect transcends effect. Let's make it meaningful.
I have been privileged to have worked at several wonderful studios including Digital Kitchen, Trollbäck + Company and currently Potion.
Brian Bowman is a designer, animator and coder with a background in architecture. He makes things for film, physical spaces, and interactive environments. His current and previous clients have included Spotify, Apple, Microsoft, HBO and Kanye West. Along with his role as Director of Design at Potion, Brian teaches CG animation to students in the graphic design program at New York City’s School for the Visual Arts (SVA).
Brian worked with Kanye West on the “Cruel Summer” album, creating a seven-screen film for premiere at the Festival de Cannes. With Greg Walters (of the band Tiny Victories), he created an immersive video installation for the new media arts festival CURRENTS, in which full-scale projections visualize a series of extra-consciousness events – from lucid dreaming to near-death experiences. Several of Brian’s title sequences have been included in the MoMA’s permanent film archives. A series of his large-scale projections were also installed in the MoMA sculpture garden. His latest animated film is currently running in the Rubin Museum of Art’s “The Second Buddha: Master of Time” exhibition.
Brian graduated from Columbia University with a Master of Architecture.
