Who

We Are

B.SIDE is a Gemini nominated design studio that conceives, develops and translates ideas from conception into Moving Design.

B.SIDE Conceives... wherein forming and understanding mental concepts and abstractions. A seemingly random yet always organic process from which all things originate. An intricate pattern of correlations that culminates in the foundation of every idea.

B.SIDE Creates... through our human intervention and artistic imagination. Through the confident collaboration of various influences in harnessing the potential of an idea, it is the process by which all concepts manifest.

B.SIDE Incites... the inspiration brought forward through the process of creation. The catalyst to further conceptualize and the motivation to create Moving Design.

B.SIDE Is... the fluid nature of this creative process which allows for the limitless exploration of the potential of an idea, resulting in the strongest possible solution for a visually unique, impactful, and resounding presence.

Abigail Pinto Correia

Abigail’s involvement with B.SIDE transcends the role of Executive Producer, working alongside the Creative Director as a valued partner in the development, art direction and management of countless projects. A diligent producer who understands her clients, her team, and the requirements of every project, Abigail communicates with calm, clarity and confidence, enabling fluidity and efficiency to mandate the experience from start to finish.

Abigail's attentiveness is steering and her warm personality is contagious as she welcomes each and every client to B.SIDE as family.

Afshin Vahabzadeh

Motion Designer

We can only imagine what a blast attendance row calls were like in highschool for our Motion Designer, A.K.A. Alphabets. Not long after joining B.SIDE in 2013, Afshin received acclaim directly from “Bill” for his design and animation produced for the opening sequence of "Shatner’s World"… That's right, Bill, as in Captain Kirk. How cool is that? Afshin has been an invaluable addition to the team contributing to the graphic production of numerous on-air broadcasts, and most recently he blew sh!t up as the lead animator for Season 2 of "Never Ever Do This At Home."
