WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO, AND WHY WE DO IT.
The idea of Identity Productions was juggled around for months on end before Clay Cunningham and Delaney Osbourn put it into action. On an erase board at eleven o'clock at night, upwards of 40 name ideas were written down. The small startup company the two young creatives wanted to begin was just a slight idea, but by the end of the night the two had crossed out 39 names and chosen the one they wanted to build their business around.
The simple, yet heavy word, sat on the board circled while all it's other competitors had been crossed out. It was the word Cunningham and Osbourn wanted to create their business around. Identity is something complex, yet so simple at the same time. Cunningham and Osbourn both agreed that the word identity embodied not only what they wanted to do with their work, but also who they were as individuals.
