Board of Governors
Greg Kupiec has served as Creative Director of The Ether since founding the company in 2008. His work includes over one hundred Main Titles for clients from Netflix to NBC; Global Marketing Campaigns for The Rolling Stones and Katy Perry; and immersive LED content for both MTV and CMT Music Awards.
Born in France and raised in Los Angeles, Kupiec unwittingly began his design career creating club flyers in high school, which set him on the path to attend the world renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, where he was among the first to enter the Motion Design program, from which he graduated with honors in 2001.
An internship with the NFL led Kupiec East, during which time he gained recognition from the New York Art Director's Club and subsequently stayed on in the city to begin his career at the multidisciplinary studio Spontaneous; he quickly ascended to the role of Senior Designer on broadcast accounts ranging from Cinemax to TNT, and worked in the advertising space for agencies J. Walter Thompson and BBDO.
While working closely with Lenny Kravitz and Sony Records on the opening Title Sequence for Lenny Live, Kupiec rekindled a love for titles that spurred his return to Los Angeles to help establish the design division of the then emerging entertainment giant Trailer Park. During his tenure as Art Director he helmed the Main Titles for James Cameron's 3D IMAX feature Aliens of the Deep among countless Title Sequences and Marketing Campaigns for Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony, and Universal.
Now Creative Director at his own company, Kupiec abides by a No Pitch Policy, which stands as one of his proudest professional achievements. A long list of awards commend his work, and he finds great fulfillment representing the craft as an Executive Committee Member and Governor of the Motion and Title Design Peer Group at the Television Academy.
Additionally, Kupiec is a certified sailing instructor — currently working towards his Captain's License—and volunteers for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
