Design-focused production company Strange Beast has signed creative/filmmaking duo MUSUTA to its roster of talent.
MUSUTA comprises Jopsu Ramu and Timo Ramu, who apply their skills in filmmaking, design, art direction and creative direction to projects for brands and advertising agencies around the world. Their work is sleek, abstract, graphic and sometimes playful, but always beautiful.
The pair began working together in their native Finland in 2003 and MUSUTA was officially formed in 2007. Since then their commercial and personal work, which spans all media, has been honoured by D&AD, The European Design Awards and Cannes Lions (gold) and featured in numerous exhibitions and festivals around the world, including at: Centre Pompidou in Paris; onedotzero in London and New York; and A Design Film Festival in Singapore and Berlin.
Splitting their time between their native Helsinki and Tokyo, MUSUTA describe their style as “using the abstract as an expression of normal things or events,” and assert that although they’ve worked for big international brands such as Issey Miyake, Nokia and Finnair, they approach every brief the same way. “No matter how big or small, the challenges remain similar in all projects. We always carefully consider how to find the right balance with abstract, artistic and commercial feel to best suit each case.”
On signing to the Strange Beast roster, they say; “We're looking forward to working on interesting and challenging projects and building a relationship that will push our creativity to the next level and beyond.”
Strange Beast’s Executive Producer, Sam O’Keefe, adds; “I have admired MUSUTA's work from afar and I am overjoyed to welcome them to the Strange Beast team. The most important thing for me is the people, and Timo and Jopsu are not just amazing creative talents but also great people to work with.
“Their work is always jaw dropping and their use of design and epic imagery brings life to any project. That they’re ambitious but with an experienced understanding of our commercial markets makes MUSUTA a perfect addition to our family.”
