The collective creative mind of directors Matt Smithson + David Stanfield.
Igor + Valentine is the creative mind of Matt Smithson (formerly Man vs. Magnet) and David Stanfield. The name does not refer to any two distinct people, but hints at a creative split personality that Matt and David share, get lost in, and ultimately choose to embrace.
Igor is a mad scientist, a constant tinkerer with an insatiable appetite for experimentation. Valentine is a distinguished gentleman, a precise technician and an elegant craftsman. You’ll see signs of both Igor + Valentine in every piece of work.
Matt Smithson is a director, animator, designer, and maker of odd drawings of ghosts and things. David Stanfield is a motion designer and director. The two combined have worked with clients like Google, Airbnb, Coca-Cola, Reddit, The Atlantic, Zendesk, Vox, Food for the Hungry, IBM, Showtime, Samsung, and MTV.
