THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY WORKS OF PACA THOMAS
The Pacaworks motto is ,"Whatever Works".
Though this may be misconstrued as glib, it is very much the underlying design philosophy of Pacaworks and its creator, Paca Thomas.
Eschewing the overused concepts of bullet point lists and dreary slideshows, weary of conventional linear design concepts and dry, humorless fact-mongering, Pacaworks looks deep into the meaning of each moment of your presentation, finds the heart of the matter and brings the salient information forward in the particular style that best makes it shine. One scene may utilize Computer-Generated Animation to make it's point, the next Motion Graphics, after that may be Text or possibly Traditional Animation. You get the idea.
Because of this mash-up, not-so-crazy quilt approach, Pacaworks presentations are well-known for their unique, artistic, clever, informative and entertaining nature, with original 3D & 2D creations, original music, sound effects and professional voiceover work.
Science Show to Sales Pitch, Serious to Silly, Pacaworks is the Art of the Presentation.
