Blind has significantly bolstered its creative motion design division with the hiring of world-class talent Mark Bellncula. With a portfolio that includes work for MTV, Atom TV, HP, Avon, BET, Snapple and SKYY Vodka, he is a respected veteran with more than 20 years in the motion design business.

Bellncula's consistently excellent work has earned numerous awards, particularly his efforts for Comedy Central, which included a BDA for his creative work on

South Park's

10th anniversary. He also developed the innovative motion design for the network's 2005 redesign, which BDA honored that same year.

"As we continue to grow our bicoastal operation, Mark is the prototype that we are seeking: creative, enthusiastic and experienced," noted Blind EP Nick Litwinko. "He works with an incredible energy and we're happy to be working with him." Litwinko added that Bellncula has already contributed to standout projects for Showtime, Fuse, and Chili's since joining Blind.

Prior to joining Blind, Bellncula worked for a number of notable New York studios, including Superfad, Interspectacular and Trollback.
