Spacejunk Acquires L.A. Based Studio Nylon


Spacejunk & Nylon have joined forces to enhance the creative reach for both studios, each known for vibrant, brand-boosting projects. The blending of the studios, under the Spacejunk moniker, expands headquarters in Columbus, Ohio with a strategic presence in Los Angeles.

Spacejunk is more than a creative studio with powerhouse talent: It is a company built on an ethos that blends innovation, style, camaraderie, production acumen and trust. The culture and creativity at Spacejunk springs from a staff-based model with experienced producers, creative directors, animators, designers and editors comprising the Spacejunk team. Since its inception, the company has earned loyal clients including Victoria’s Secret, Aeropostale, Totes/Isotoner, Bath & Body Works, FOX, Nationwide, HP, LensCrafters, Wizards of the Coast, Herbal Essences and Vitamix.

“Our relationship with Nylon marks a natural next step for Spacejunk, and enhances our ability to make meaningful connections with clients around the country,” notes company Co-Founder/Managing Director Robb Dierken. “Our combined resources as well as our shared business and creative philosophies have made for a seamless integration.”

Nylon is widely known for creating inspiring work across multiple platforms, infusing projects with dynamic animation and compelling narratives. Nylon’s clients include ABC, Honda, Footlocker, RPA, Syfy, CN, WDCW, Pontiac, Bose, Nickelodeon, Planet Green, Iosono, Disney, ESPN, MTV and more. For Nylon founder Joe Montalbano, the studio merger and combined creative power means increased client interaction and industry engagement.

“Spacejunk has an amazing team inspired to push creativity ever higher,” comments Montalbano, now Spacejunk’s EP/New Business Development. “By coming together we have a national reach and exposure with the equity of both studios aligned. I am very excited to introduce this evolution to existing and new clients.”

Spacejunk’s mission control is the stylish expression of form meets function: A beautiful studio in the heart of the warehouse district in downtown Columbus, Ohio. In addition to being a hub of creativity, Spacejunk’s studio is often cited as a favorite hangout for clients and a place where the team comes together to play after hours.

“To the outside world, Columbus, Ohio remains an enigma,” comments Creative Director Mike Beaumont, ”But locals know it as a rival to Austin or Portland: a university town with a strong arts and food scene. Spacejunk is influenced by so many elements, local and otherwise. These passions inform our work and produce a vital culture at Spacejunk.”
