SHOOT: Los York promotes Melina Osornio-Andrade to managing director & partner

Creative production studio Los York has promoted executive producer Melina Osornio-Andrade to managing director and partner.

Originally from Taos, New Mexico, Osornio-Andrade is experienced in feature films, advertising production and postproduction, with a deep love of design and motion graphics. From her 2012 start as an office manager at Stardust, the company that evolved into Los York, Osornio-Andrade moved quickly into positions of greater vision and responsibility, from producer to head of production, executive producer, and now to managing director and partner.

In her new role Osornio-Andrade will be responsible for ensuring Los York is executing on its strategic plan–with all teams working at their highest levels, producing top tier work. Osornio-Andrade has worked with brands including Motorola, EA, Nike, Sonos, and Logitech. As a woman in a position of leadership, Osornio-Andrade is passionate about ushering in a new era for Los York–and the design industry as a whole–by breaking down barriers and fostering a culture that reflects a broad spectrum of diverse experiences.

Seth Epstein, director and co-founder of Los York, said, “Melina is deeply committed to the quality of our work in a way that lets the whole team shine. Last year was our best to date and Melina is a great leader to seize this growth and momentum and carry us forward. She’s only made us better for the past 10 years and I can’t wait to see what she brings to our future.”

Los York has been active in mixed media production, executing on projects that feature a mix of design, animation, and live-action. Recent highlights include a 360 campaign for the Minnesota Twins, a national digital OOH campaign for Google and Samsung, and ongoing social, digital and broadcast work for Logitech.
