Story By Design

Story By Design


Flying Kraken is a boutique service studio specializing in original design for development and production.

Flying Kraken’s founders are Greg Huculak and Rose-Ann Tisserand. After working in studios for many years, the Kraken was officially released in 2008. Today we provide original design and directing services for development as well as production design for film and television for clients globally. Flying Kraken’s passion for animation extends to creating original properties.

We create stories by design and we create story in design. We continually challenge ourselves to dream up new worlds and new styles that not only appeal but are believable and engaging. Having worked in studios, we understand and respect production, timelines and client needs.

Greg and Flying Kraken did a great job solving some creative problems for us. Their designs locked in a style that really helped us move our project forward. They were easy to work with and delivered on everything we asked.

Flying Kraken impressed me from the first.  With a portfolio that illustrates a wide breadth of artistic style, it’s become my go-to studio for innovative design. Their extraordinary talent, coupled with an understanding of animation, gives them unique perspective on everything from conception to execution.  Flying Kraken is both collaborative and responsive to direction - a PLEASURE to work with. Anyone who has a chance to work with them should jump at the opportunity.

Greg and Rose-Ann have been really creative and professional partners during development. Their ability to identify, conceptualize, and communicate really helped us to focus on the most important elements of our properties for presentation and pitch. Very strong design skills and fast to boot! Would not hesitate to work with them again!
