Wave, the globally acclaimed sound design and audio post-production company have some exciting news to share. The award winning team have hinted at their intentions for some time and now the secret is about to jump out of the bag. Quite literally as this Christmas they shall be distributing hundreds of cool bags that showcase an extra city’s name as part of their design. New York has been selected as the logical landing point for them to open their new outpost. Having scoured the United States they settled on New York and are already in the process of building their exciting new facility.

With offices in London and Amsterdam Wave has a proven track record in developing their brand to provide the world’s best sound designers, mixers, recordists and supervisors to local markets. New York is no exception and they shall be delivering their inimitable style and skill set to their already existing client base in the city.

Wave is famed for creating so many great moments in audio history. However, it is their simple approach to sound design and production they shall deploy in their next adventure. Wave always delivers every soundtrack with the same amount of enthusiasm and vigour, pushing boundaries to create groundbreaking audio. They shall be starting small by mirroring their success in other offices. Firstly two sound design and mixing suites are to be built that will be supported by producers and technicians to cater for their client’s every need. Add to this a sprinkle of London talent and New York creativity and you have the perfect mix.

The founders of Wave, Warren Hamilton and Johnnie Burn understand that in order to complete their company ethos and to satisfy the creative juices of their team, a move into the US market presents the next necessary and challenging frontier.

Warren comments:
At Wave we don’t like sitting still. Having scoured coast to coast and given it much chin scratching time, New York seemed the logical and perfect place to kick start the next instalment of the Wave adventure. New York is not just an amazing city with so much going on in the advertising and audio post sector, it also has lots of our friends there in various guises of production life. Plus we have native New York clients from the agency world, so opening in the city makes perfect sense for everyone. Despite working for US agencies at the moment, the awkwardness of distance won’t be an issue come next Summer**.”

Johnnie comments:
Delivering on the ambitions of our amazing team, further facilitating existing clients overseas, reaching a wider audience, and tapping into a market brimming with creativity right now. Our expansion into New York is a very exciting development for us, plus it’ll be a laugh.”

Aaron Reynolds, Senior Partner at Wave adds:
New York is arguably one of the most creative and exciting places to be right now. With its creative similarity to London it’s the perfect city for the next chapter in the Wave story”.

The new studios shall open in the heart of Manhattan some time in early Summer 2018. No doubt they shall be hosting a party to welcome local advertising folk to the new studios. New kit will include two Dolby certified mixing suites, running Avid S6 desks.

More news shall be released nearer the time. For now keep an eye out for their Christmas bags, which have been designed by one of their talented team to reflect their evolving brand.
