Design & digital production studio Timber, headed by Creative Directors/Partners Jonah Hall & Kevin Lau and brand-new EP Sabrina Elizondo, has provided VFX and post for three Super Bowl 50 commercial spots for Hyndai, Buick and T-Mobile. Right on the heels of CBS’ incredibly successful promo campaign “Witness Greatness,” encouraging viewers to tune-in for “The Grammy’s” and the “Super Bowl” in February, via TBWA/Chiat/Day; the Timber team has seen the Super Bowl 50 gold shine on them three times. (

“The Super Bowl always been the biggest display of marketing creativity,” says Timber Creative Director/Partner Jonah Hall. “Now it’s even bigger because of the fact that it’s a live event in an era where people skip commercials instinctively.” “People will watch these spots and talk about them,” adds Timber Creative Director/Partner Kevin Lau. “It’s great to have had such a big presence this year."
