A trio of adventurous souls specialising in animation, illustration and character design.
Le Cube is an award-winning animation studio based in Buenos Aires and São Paulo working for the largest, leading top tier advertising agencies and clients worldwide. Made up by Creative Director Ralph Karam and Executive Producers Gustavo Karam and Juan Manuel Freire, Le Cube specializes in animation, illustration, and character design. The crew is composed of crazy sailors from around the world, working with excellence and producing impeccable work. Le Cube’s adventurous souls draw inspiration from urban culture, design, animation, film, photography, architecture and arts.
Brothers and industry veterans, Ralph and Gustavo joined forces with Juan Manuel, former owner of Animal in Buenos Aires, in 2013. They have produced fun and technically brilliant films for the likes of Nickelodeon, Nescafé, MTV, Vodafone, Volkswagen and Cartoon Network, with features in multiple publications including It’s Nice That, PromaxBDA, Stash and Motionographer Picks. Their animation for the Instituto Ayrton Senna, celebrating the life of Brazil’s national hero in a motivational short for the nation’s athletes ahead of the Olympics, won the 2016 Silver Cannes Lion for Augmented Mobile Experience. Le Cube also won Best Agency of the Year at Bassawards 2016, with two golds for Best Commercial and Best TV Channel Branding, one silver for Best Showreel and one bronze in Best Experimental.
Their nautical theme is a play on their worldwide appeal as directors and they use the metaphor of sailing to different “docks” around the world to illustrate their universal strategy. They integrate a little bit of Latin flavor into making the process of every project a fun journey for all involved.
