A BRIEF HISTORY
Photo: Tom Miller

Hello! I'm Tom Miller, Creative Ocean’s founder and sole employee. I've been building animated and interactive content since 2003, with particular focus on digital advertising.

My career began in Chicago, first as an intern and production assistant at Digital Kitchen, and then as a designer and art director at Foote, Cone & Belding. In 2006 I left my full-time agency position to pursue freelance design and Flash production. Creative Ocean was incorporated in 2012. After more than a decade of Flash animation and AS2/3 programming, I shifted to standards-compliant development, now pushing the limits of what is possible with Javascript, SVG, Canvas, and other modern web technologies. The fundamental design, animation, and programming skills cultivated during those pre-HTML5 web years established a solid foundation for producing high-quality work in the current digital landscape.


CORE SERVICES

ONLINE ADVERTISING

Standard and rich media display ads are my bread and butter. I'm well versed in the latest IAB standards, and have built HTML5 ads for use in all the major platforms, including DCM, AdWords, DoubleClick Studio, Sizmek, and FlashTalking.

SITE CONTENT & WEB APPS

Thoughtfully crafted motion and interaction elevates user experience, while also creating measurable engagement statistics. Unbound by online advertising's file size or time limits, this type of work ranges from animated logos and seasonal campaign features, to robust social media-integrated tools and immersive virtual environments.

MOTION GRAPHICS

Purely animated projects, built in AfterEffects and/or Flash are where I got my start. Past motion jobs include explainer videos, commercial end-tags, outdoor and stadium video billboards.

KIOSK INTERFACES

Whether the final product is intended for use on a locked tablet, large touch-screen monitor, or custom input/display setup, I've built animated and interactive user interfaces for a range of applications.
