Headed by the creative spirit of Cooper Johnson, Cardboard Castle is a motion production studio that creates innovative visual content. Our community of artists, storytellers, and vision-makers are well-versed in both digital and hands-on techniques. We draw, forge, strategize, originate, re-vamp, animate, digitize, or illuminate at any stage in the campaign. We look beyond the castle walls to bring the sharpest vision into the light.
Cardboard Castle is the natural extension of rich artistry that has guided Cooper Johnson throughout his life. His childhood – spent in the wilds of Alaska – was filled with long winter nights and endless summer days drawing and creating. This gift soon found expression in other places and mediums—from Cooper’s bohemian period as a tattoo artist in Paris, to fifteen years in motion graphics artistry and filmmaking for clients from the East to the West Coast. Now settled in Portland, Oregon, he is at the helm of Cardboard Castle, from which many creative quests continue to be launched.
