We love good concepts, because they work without a because.


The Kompost approach is simple… and effective: first a good concept, the rest develops organically. their multi-disciplinairy approach which combines 3D, live action, digital and traditional animation as well as illustration and storytelling allows for artistic expression beyond the limitations of our imagination. Kompost's unique body of work ranges from award winning music videos and corporate branding to commercials for clients such as Condenast Traveler, New Era and Verizon Wireless. Although working closely with talented artists from around the world, Kompost remains based out of New York and Switzerland. Together we strive to set new standards in the fields of art and design.

about us

Oliver Conrad / Creative Director

The same year he co-founded KOMPOST, a design boutique located in New York City. Oliver has directed several award winning music videos, commercials and short films. If you can't reach him in the office, he's probably out fly-fishing.




Gian Klainguti / Executive Producer


Gian Klainguti is a Swiss - American and grew up between Zürich and Engadine valley. During his film studies in Zürich he started working on film productions throughout Europe. In 2004 he teamed up with Oliver Conrad to produce award winning music videos and TV commercials for Kompost. On a sunny winterday you will most likely find him somewhere on the Mountain freeriding.

Both partners are currently working at Kompost between New York and St. Moritz, Switzerland.
