WHAT IS ATH ARTS?

Art & tech for humans.

Anthony Tyrone Howard
Owner / Ignighter 

My 25+ year career in Advertising, Graphic Design, Animation, Digital Development, STEM Curation. and Creative Direction seems like a blur now. 

I’ve quite possibly worked on hundreds or thousands of projects over this time and I barely remember any of them. 

I decided it was time for me to work on projects that meant something to me. I want to work on things that keep me up at night, that I can’t stop thinking about. 

The next phase of my life and career will be dedicated to inventing things that make the world better.

LATEST PROJECT

LowKey Giant Magazine

CRYPTOART FOCUSED AUDIO/VISUAL MAGAZINE

Lowkey Giant is a digital media outlet focused on NFT/Crypto creativity, culture and community. Our goal is to spotlight human-centric stories and creative collaborations that pave a new way forward.

 

SOCIAL EMPATHY MEDIA APP

Using the Cortex API and EmotiveTM SDK, I’m developing a mobile application that works with the Emotiv Insight EEG headset to provide deep user information such as the user’s emotional state, stress level, attention, and focus. The technology also allows users to send direct commands using thought alone.

LATEST STE(A)M PROJECT

Awesome Sauce!

MOTION GRAPHICS / ART DIRECTION / GRAPHIC DESIGN / ANIMATION

Awesome Sauce is a series of educational videos produced by ATH ARTS (www.atharts.com) The aim of the videos is to tackle themes around STEM, Graphic Design Basics, Design History, and many other topics.

Awesome Sauce uses humor to communicate points. Most STEM content is extremely dry and uninspired. I hope to inspire better STEM content. 

In addition to long-form animated segments, Awesome Sauce also hosts Live and Streaming content. 

A lot of work was put into making the musical segments and skit entertaining and informative. 

Focusing on making difficult concepts easy to understand is our goal. 

Our mission

Creating art + technology for humankind.

ATH ARTS I HELPS ESTABLISHED AND EMERGING BUSINESSES GROW, LAUNCH SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTS, AND HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THEIR COMMUNITIES.

Your kids can catch sports tips from world-class athletes, get hands-on with arts and crafts, take music lessons and more.

Project responsibilites

Some examples

The project required a quick turnaround creating motion graphics for these videos so I had to figure out some short cuts in AfterEffects using scripting

This particular video was challenging because syncing animation to video in AfterEffects can be pretty tricky. I think it came out well here. 

This was a fun video to do because it required doing light character animation of some of my favorite characters. 

I love the family aspect of this video and the fact it reminded me how crucial videos like this are to give families options to cope during these times.

CREATIVE PROFILE

Anthony Tyrone Howard, Owner

DIGITAL CREATIVE DIRECTOR, VISUAL ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR

I’m dedicated to solving business and creative problems using a combination of digital and traditional tools. 

I’m a visual problem-solver, business designer, and creative technologist. I help companies and organizations transform their ideas into influential products and services. I have years of diverse experience. I started my career as a Flash animator but over the past 20 years, I’ve worked within the realms of online education, commercial advertising, branding design, interactive development, pharmaceutical marketing, STEM program development, graphic novel illustration, and game design.

I understand the power of data and the potential impact of emerging technology in marketing, media, and education. For the past several years I’ve dedicated my time to working with communities to bring technology into the classroom. I co-founded Creative Tech Works™ in North Philadelphia, a STEM program whose mission was to produce socially conscious, diverse tech talent.

 Our partners included Google and The School District of Philadelphia. I wrote the programs’ curriculum and developed several demonstrations and events, including an interactive race through the city, using apps and wearable tech created by the students of the program. I believe humanity has only scratched the surface of how integrated communication technologies, paired with passion and artistic instinct, can transform how we tell stories. I seek to create stories that can connect brands, organizations, and individuals with audiences in increasingly meaningful ways.
