Antimere Robinson is stressed out that he has to write this bio thing in the third person so he’s going to switch it around

“I started working for FUNImation in 2002 after completing my BFA at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX. At that time, a lot of people from Denton and UNT started working here, too. Denton is full of artists, musicians, writers, and some very talented vagabonds. I started off designing DVD menus and now I am the Manager of Creative Services and that means I oversee four departments: Graphic Arts, Copywriting, Promotional Video, and Web.

I am rather fond of packaging. Not just DVD products but all kinds of packaging. Sometimes what you buy is as interesting as the box it comes in. Honestly, sometimes the best packaging is better than what it holds. I wish I had a reason to buy high-end cosmetics; if you’ve never seen Anna Sui cosmetics then you’re missing out on a visual treat.

I’m most proud of the packaging I designed for Gunslinger Girl, Fullmetal Alchemist, SpeedGrapher, Hell Girl, and the first Dragon Ball saga sets. Getting the opportunity to design the packaging for Evangelion 1.01 & 1.11 was thrilling and nerve-wracking. I’m a longtime fan of the entire franchise and still can’t believe that I had the chance to add my fingerprint.

I’m lucky in that I’ve also been cast in several of our shows. The first four roles I ever got are probably my favorite: Head Chef in Fruits Basket, Tweedledum in Kiddy Grade, Tranny in Burst Angel, and Bob is SpeedGrapher.
