John Niehuss is an artist, designer, and art director primarily working in 3d. Since 2003 he has worked on an array of projects and campaigns spanning commercials, award-winning feature films, games, technology and advertising. With a foot in both the artistic and the technical camps, his interdisciplinary skill-set has been utilized from the design and concepting stages right through to post production and complex problem solving, both on-set and off.
Having spent years working in visual effects at facilities like Digital Domain, in 2012 he returned to his roots in commercials and advertising at the design-driven Buck and is now freelance – increasingly focusing on design, art direction and 3d in new applications .
When away from the computer he spends much of his time outdoors with a camera.
