Honoring Mike Homer


Mike Homer hired us in early 2001 for our first project as Odopod – to design the brand and UI for a video delivery service called Kontiki.  Mike was a founder of Netscape and quintessential Silicon Valley entrepreneur.  He led with great energy and enthusiastic vision.  Mike Homer died Monday at his home in Atherton, CA, after a severe illness. He was 50. Our deepest condolences to his family and dear friends.

Grid Wall Launched for YouTube AdBlitz 2009

YouTube came to Odopod to develop a video browsing interface, allowing users to browse and view multiple videos in a unique and compelling way.

The interface is fully customizable to match any page design and provides the YouTube team the option of setting up video contests and promotions with a voting mechanism built right in.

The first use of the video grid wall launched this weekend in honor of the Super Bowl commercials with YouTube’s Ad Blitz 2009.

Odopod’s Jason Hardy Creates Change

We are honored and proud to congratulate Odopod Senior Art Director, Jason Hardy for his recent participation in the MANIFESTHOPE: DC Gallery preceding the historical Presidential Inauguration.

MANIFESTHOPE: DC gathers together a diverse array of the nation’s most talented visual artists under one roof to mark this monumental achievement in our nation’s history and encourages artists and activists to maintain the momentum to bring about true change in the United States.

His piece focuses on the theme of “Green Economy” where he repurposed environmental posters from a previous collaboration.

“I composed the artwork digitally and had it printed on canvas, then I stretched it over a frame and embellished some areas with acrylic. The end result is kind of a collage of different messages relating to biking and environmentalism.”

Nice Job Jason!

Same Team, New Name

It's been thirteen years since we started Odopod.

We've always wanted one thing: to do the best work of our lives. Along the way, we have been joined by an eclectic and exceptionally talented bunch of people who wanted the same thing. Together, we've built a company we love.

Two years ago, Odopod was acquired by Nurun.

The acquisition was a validation of everything we had built. It was also a catalyst for some big changes we wanted to make. We began to tackle bigger, thornier problems and to work all over the world. With Nurun, we've had a series of huge wins and have been producing our best work yet.

That's why we recently decided to retire the Odopod brand, formally adopt Nurun as our name, and take the reins of Nurun's US operations.

We're all still here—same team with the same appetite for great work, only now with different e-mail addresses and more frequent flyer miles. And we're growing, so send your talented friends our way.

Keep an eye out for new work from Nurun. It will be our best yet.

Tim, Dave, Jacquie, JT & Guthrie
