Studio Hyperset

Media design, development & strategy

Good media matters.

In the pre-modern world, human beings were under near-constant physical threat: from starvation, from disease, from physical injury. The world is still a very chaotic, noisy, and threatening place, but we’ve displaced physical threats with psychological ones, with an almost constant need to make meaning from our increasingly abstract surroundings, to interpret and express data, language, and symbols.

Like great films, essays, and poems (and novels, concerti, sermons, paintings, sculptures, lectures, graphics, &c.), effective websites and engaging videos — and their constituent, arterial arts — carry meaning between people and across time and geography. We create these things because they’re unlimited where we are limited, and by carrying expressions of meaning into the world, they have the ability to introduce balance, harmony, and direction into what would otherwise be intolerable madness and entropy.

This “unified theory” of media informs everything Studio Hyperset does. Our mission is making that sensibility communal and contagious by ushering instances of order, balance, harmony, and elegance into the world.


Studio Hyperset is a media design, development, and strategy firm based in Huntington Beach, CA. We help clients create and execute marketing strategies and build relevant campaign collateral, including cinema-quality videos and WordPress websites and plugins.

Studio Hyperset began its life in 2006 as a vertically-integrated, client-focused creative services firm. Since then, we've helped businesses, individuals, and non-profits from all over the world build a diverse set of media collateral. Over the past nine years, Studio Hyperset has grown and diversified. In addition to our creative services, we now build media and solutions of our own.

Bridges matter.

"Sidereal phalanxes, leap and converge:
—One Song, one Bridge of Fire!"
— Hart Crane, The Bridge: "Atlantis"

Imagine three islands separated by a vast body of water. Without some reliable connection framework, the inhabitants of each island find it difficult to share ideas and resources.

The contemporary professional landscape exists in much the same way.

Creative talent finds itself isolated from clients and generally connects with projects reactively and as a result of luck.

When project patrons need creative talent to help them connect with their audiences, they find themselves overwhelmed by an influx of unvetted, uncurated vendors and, in due course, a distracting series of project management tasks.

Studio Hyperset builds, manages, and maintains reliable, scalable bridges between creative talent and project patrons. In so doing, we help each community establish mutually-beneficial tribal structures.

And the "good media" we deliver helps businesses and nonprofits build and maintain bridges with their audiences.

Project management matters.

High res (.zip | 5.2mb)
“ ... steadfast as Keats’ Eremite, ...
It asks of us a certain height,
So when at times the mob is swayed
To carry praise or blame too far,
We may choose something like a star
To stay our minds on and be staid."
— Robert Frost, “Choose Something Like a Star”

Even if we weren’t constantly aware of it, humanity has always been focused on reaching the stars.

In our earliest moments, we looked up at the night sky and saw gods.

Then, in time, we left the earth ourselves and looked back on it, just as our deities had, not so long ago. Like Prometheus, we claimed their privilege as our own and did with it as we pleased.

Project management got us to that point, and it sustained us as we busied ourselves with other tasks, steadily preparing for the giant leap outward to immortality.

In prehistoric times, project management brought down game and put meat on the fire. It built our earliest cities and organized all our empires (for better and for worse).

Project management orchestrates symphonies and stages operas. It brings forth the films we love and puts novels in our hands. It builds cathedrals and paints their interiors.

Project management is the midwife of all "good media." It makes us larger and more powerful than we could ever could be on our own.

It’s the steady north star at the center of any successful project.

As its effectiveness increases, though, so does its transparency. Problems dissolve and disappear. As such, communicating the value of project management can be difficult, but that just makes doing so all the more important, all the more necessary.

Project management took us to the moon, and it will get us to Mars and all the stars beyond it.

In fact, it’s already pushed humanity’s media into interstellar space.

And when the first of us leave our solar neighborhood, to colonize the wider universe, it’s project management that will power us and keep us moving ever outward.
