      Eric MooneyhamEric Mooneyham and Image Domain have been at the forefront of brand image creation, quality and curation, for the past two decades. Some of the most renowned brands in the world have benefited from Eric’s work in these regards. Eric has been a pioneer in high-resolution digital imagery, on-demand digital proofing, development of digital archiving and distribution systems, and perfecting new technologies in the creation of new and exciting images that the world demands.

      In the early 90’s Eric and Image Domain took on the herculean task of creating all of the brand imagery for Saban/Fox Entertainment’s massive media hit, Power Rangers. The worldwide popularity of Power Rangers posed mammoth demands for image distribution which Eric addressed by being both a pioneer in high-resolution digital imagery as well as the creation of digital image archiving and management which became a model that all current image management systems emulated. Eric’s success became a cornerstone for the brand management of many major entertainment properties.

      The broad-based product and promotion needs and ever-shortening time frames for time-to-markets in all consumer products required improved means of proofing of printed materials. To meet these demands, Eric and Image Domain created new and highly accurate digital proofing services that remain the standard of the industry.

      Eric’s dedication to quality and innovation led to his selection as a primary resource for Mercedes-Benz when Daimler AG required comprehensive, new brand images just a few years ago. Needless to say, such a revered brand with its “The Best or Nothing” motto made Eric and Image Domain the obvious choice for new Mercedes imagery.

      The last few years advent of new aerial photography image creation now has a quality and technology leader and, not surprisingly, it’s Eric. His innovation and dedication to quality has resulted in his creation of new aerial production and images for the most famous of performing artist and forthcoming imagery for leading automotive brands.

      The combination of dedication, innovation and quality that’s incumbent in Eric Mooneyham and Image Domain continues to be a recipe for brand success in all industries.
