East Pleasant is pleased to announce that Director Bradonio has been selected to join this year’s class of ADC Young Guns, an annual competition established by The Art Directors Club. Young Guns, which honors talented creatives working across a variety of visual media, has become renowned for identifying rising stars on their way to the vanguard of their disciplines.

Bradonio’s win comes as little surprise to the East Pleasant family, where his highly inventive and absurdist creative vision has helped to shape hilarious work for clients from Greenpeace to Aquafina, networks from MTV to Travel Channel, and artists such as RJD2 and Gramatik. Many of his current projects that involve visual effects are done in close collaboration with EP*Vision, making apes dance, taxis fly, goblins attack, and aliens that teleport. The young director also keeps busy outside of advertising and music videos – his personal website features an ever-growing reserve of quick ideas, tests and experiments filmed in his off hours that contributed to his Young Guns win. “It makes me smile to know that the ADC invites us into the Young Guns group not only for our client-based work, but also for the passion projects. It means that things like Charlton Heston’s shiny disco pants also weighed into the decision, which is good, because those pants are very heavy,” noted Bradonio.
