Red Apple Creative and SNK Studios rebrand to Forever Audio
Specialist audio agency, Red Apple Creative, and award-winning audio post production house, SNK Studios, have rebranded to Forever Audio.
The group has previously operated as standalone brands within the same company based in London and New York.
The business of around 50 people was founded in 2005 and includes a creative team who specialise in short form advertising and long form content. The creative team at Red Apple have grown a reputation for the level of innovation they bring to projects and industry events. They are Spotify’s preferred creative partner, working on global campaigns in multiple languages, as well as working with agencies and directly with brands. On the content side of the business, they work with multiple platforms and have recently completed a world-first project with Audible, adapting 6 books inspired by the popular Hilda series on Netflix into fully immersive audio scripts and productions with an ensemble cast. They have produced, recorded, edited and mixed podcasts for several organisations, most recently Goodstuff and Haringey Council.
SNK Studios are renowned for their work on global ad campaigns, from Amazon and Adobe to Range Rover and Sky, delivering voice casting, voiceover recording, sound design and mixing for TV and online. Their facility on Tottenham Court Road is home to 11 studios, includes 3 ADR stages, a Dolby Atmos suite and welcoming reception space. Their music services cater for every need, with in-house bespoke composition, internal library music catalogue and sync licensing services.
The Studios side of the business has also been approved to handle sensitive international 'pre-release’ film and TV content for the major streaming platforms and Hollywood film companies. They have provided dialogue recording for The Crown, Bridgerton and Oscar winning film, Dune, which won the 'Achievement in Sound’ category.
Company co-founder, Seb Juviler, spoke about the rebrand: “We’ve always worked really closely behind the scenes, with the studios sound designing and mixing everything that the creative teams write and produce. We felt it was time to lose the heritage names that we started our journey with back in 2005 and bring everything together under one overarching brand.”
Co-founder Paul Golliker added: “There’s no business that offers the number of audio services that we do all under one roof. We’re completely unique and on a daily basis we’ll have studios recording voiceovers for animated series and feature films. Then we’ll be creating bespoke sound design and mixing TV ads, audio dramas, audiobooks and podcasts. We’ve got specialist composition teams creating sonic identities for brands, writing teams who are experts in audio short form commercials and long form content. And we have media planning and buying across all audio platforms, plus a digital team who are completely focussed on interactive digital experiences for audio platforms. That’s a lot to communicate when everything is under a different brand! So the rebrand to Forever Audio is really designed to bring all of these amazing offerings together and give clients a clear understanding of everything we have to offer.”
Executive Creative Director, Kathleen Moroney, has led the Red Apple Creative team since 2015 and feels that now is the perfect time to rebrand. “We live and breathe audio across all of our departments and we have done, quite literally forever. SNK and Red Apple Creative are really well known names, but clients might not have been aware of the breadth of services we can help them with across those brands. Now agencies, marketers and businesses are thinking more strategically than ever before about their multichannel audio strategy and are often dealing with multiple vendors to deliver various audio assets. We offer long term partnerships as the specialists in every area of audio you can imagine, and we wanted to communicate that simplicity by bringing everything together under one name with one collective goal; to deliver world class audio services.”
