We’re really proud of our staff at Territory Studio. Even if not directly involved in the awesome work we deliver to our clients, we each appreciate creativity and being creative, in whatever format.
If you’re here, you’ve probably already seen our work. Now we invite you to get to know us better. Starting with our creative teams, we’ll be asking questions and sharing not only TS project work, but personal creative projects and what really inspires us day to day.
Jorge Almeida – Lead Designer
Seeing someone who has physically mastered their craft always makes me want to create because the act of doing it looks like so much fun– Jorge Almeida
Tell us a bit about you:
I’ve been working in film and television for over 15 years, focusing mostly on FUI design and animation. I’m also a classically trained fine artist, having studied at Watts Atelier in California. I love to draw in my free time, and I’ve also taken up Salsa dancing over the last few years.
Who and/or what inspires you creatively?
I’m inspired mostly by traditional artists. Artists that use a pencil or paintbrush, sculpt, dance or play an instrument. Seeing someone who has physically mastered their craft always makes me want to create because the act of doing it looks like so much fun. I love digital work, but a beautiful drawing will capture the type of passion, soul and intensity that made me want to become an artist in the first place.

How long have you been at Territory?
Why did you want to work at Territory?
I’ve been a fan of Territory’s FUI work for several years- especially their interfaces for the “Avengers” films as well as “The Martian’ and ‘Ready Player One.” The fact that their office is in London was a bonus. Also, after freelancing for a few years I was missing the feeling of camaraderie and inspiration that comes from working at a studio with other artists.

What’s been your favourite TS project to work on so far and why?
The project I’m currently working on is definitely my favorite so far. I’ve been asked to design and animate many of the user interfaces for a new sci-fi show that premieres later this year. The client has been great and the concept art I have seen so far is just beautiful. I’m working on user interfaces, as well other interfaces for some very cool environments. I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product.
Where do you look for creativity online?
I mostly follow fine artists and illustrators like @quintanarte, @jeffreywattsart, @oliversin, @i_justdraw – as well as several gallery pages. I will also visit websites like Behance, Artstation, Pinterest, and Cargo Collective and simply browse through random artwork and designs.
