TELL US ABOUT TZION MEDIA
Tzion Media (pronounced see’on) specialises in Creative Media Production. We produce a wide range of Creative Media such as Websites, Apps, Graphic Designs, Motion Graphics, Animation, Video, Music, Print & Digital Publications and more.
We are based in Queensland, Australia. We work across all of Australia, Asia Pacific and throughout the world.
WHAT IS A CURRENT PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON?
A project that we are currently working on is the creation of a complete cross-media profile for an up and coming female musician in Australia. We are working on her logo, album cover, t-shirts, stickers, posters, business cards, website, music video clip, social media content (graphics, video, etc.), and more. It’s very exciting to watch it all coming together.
WHAT SETS TZION MEDIA APART?
What sets us apart is that we are a one-stop creative business. We don’t just offer web design or graphic design or video editing. We do it all and we do it well!
HOW IS YOUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS?
Our recruitment process is very straightforward. We ask everyone who contacts us to supply a resume and/or an online portfolio. They are also welcome to provide any work that they have done. Then if we are interested to speak further, we have a set of basic questions we ask every candidate. Following that, if we believe they will be good for our business and our business will be good for them, we will have an interview and decide from there.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN APPLICANTS?
Kindness and honesty. That may be unconventional (even to say that), but it is true. If I find a kind and honest employee than I know I can trust them, they will be upfront with me and communicate honestly with me, they will be loyal, they will be reliable and if they ever have to deal with customers I know that everything will be fine.
Also I’m looking for people with initiative, motivation, and enthusiasm. People with potential, eager to learn, fast learners, creative thinkers and who show they want an opportunity.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL WORK CHALLENGE?
Getting it right for a customer. Turning the customers ideas into a reality, even though sometimes they don’t articulate it well.
HOW DO YOU ENCOURAGE YOUR TEAM?
On a personal level, I encourage them by treating them well, letting them know that they can speak with me and spending some time with each of them. On a work level, I try to inspire them to be creative. I will find different creative items like art, web designs, graphic designs, videos, animation and share it with them.
WHAT MAKES TZION MEDIA UNIQUE?
Exceptional skill and exceptional creativity.
ADVICE FOR ASPIRING ARTISTS.
Artistically speaking, I would say just follow your creative instinct, think out of the box and try not to do everything by the textbook. From another point of view I would also say this… ‘Nothing is new under the sun’. I am amazed that in the Philippines, and Asia in general, there is a very limited knowledge of other styles of art from history and different cultures. There are so many styles and eras of art that have played such a significant role in making art and design what it is today. So I would encourage anyone studying any type of art or design to expand your knowledge. Read books, go to art galleries, search the Internet to learn more about art and get a wider view. Don’t forget ART is the heart of design. Here are just a few examples of different art that I would recommend aspiring Filipino artists to check out- Jewish illuminated books, Medieval illumination art, Impressionism (Monet, Manet, Renoir), Post impressionism, Cubism, M.C. Escher, Landscape (Tulio Dias), Indigenous Australian art (Albert Namatjira, Central desert art), and anything else you can find.
When you look at this art, consider that most of it was made without a computer, using only pencils, pastels, brushes and some of it even with just fingers. Now that you have a computer with almost unlimited possibilities, what are you going to do?
