Collider is guided by the belief that a company is only as good as its operational philosophy and practice. The ability to attract and inspire a talented core of creatives, while exciting clients and evolving its collective creative voice has pinned Collider as a leading internationally significant collective. Collider was founded in 2001 by Daniel Askill, Sam Zalaiskalns and Andrew van der Westhuyzen. While based in Sydney, Collider’s creative influence is global, evident through its impressive portfolio of work and high-profile clients.
As a company, Collider has generated a lot of press and won many awards for both its commercial and personal work in Australia and abroad. Collider’s ability to function as a hybrid between design studio, production company and post facility puts it in a unique position to facilitate and foster honest and original creative process. The result is a powerful cross-pollination between creative spheres that would traditionally not always mix.
