YOUR ANIMATION TEAM
DAVE SWAIN Creative Project Lead
Dave was creating motion graphics before there was even a name for it. Tons of experience, an eye for detail and being a true “people person” seem to be the winning combination when it comes to delivering the goods and strengthening relationships. But be careful; during all of that relationship strengthening, you may get caught in lengthy conversations about music, craft beer and how much he likes the idea of being outdoorsy.

RUTH NEWBERRY Design & 3D Animation
Despite her reserved demeanor, Ruth’s creative voice is loud and clear. Her background in theatre lighting and set design, as well as her infatuation with art, travel and exploration give her unexpected ways of interpreting stories and approaching design. A true competitor, she takes each project personally and is always looking for a way to infuse her own brand of excitement into what she creates. Adventurous in her execution and energetic in her style, her work is guaranteed to surprise and impress. As a founding member and partner at Cream, Ruth has been designing and animating for almost 15 years, with most of that time focused in 3D.
SHANNON HONAKER Design & 3D Animation
Growing up as an avid reader of Fangoria and Starlog magazines in the 80’s, Shannon has always been obsessed with special effects. Although he didn’t end up building actual monsters and models, Shannon combined that love for effects with his skills in animation and graphic design and started blazing his own trail. A shiny new Apple II GS computer and lots of late nights were the start of what has turned out to be a most excellent career, even without the latex masks and fake blood.
JOANNA RECINOS Executive Producer
This isn't Joanna's fist rodeo. That's just a funny way of saying that she brings an enormous amount of experience and insight to the studio. As an account executive on the advertising side, and a post producer and new business lead on the production side, she’s seen our industry from pretty much every angle. A day in the life of Joanna usually entails identifying solutions for clients, managing multiple projects and resources, and pursuing new and exciting opportunities. On top of that, she brings a great deal of fun and laughter to the studio; the number one requirement for all Cream team members.
