Cyclops Studios Origin
In Greek folklore the Cyclops are characterized as ‘the craftsmen/metalworkers for the gods’. They are the Fabricators creators of miraculous tools, trinkets and weapons; including Poseidon’s powerful trident or Zeus’s feared lightning bolts. Adam says, "To me, the Cyclops embodies my professional ambitions to have a singular vision to aspire for more. The name, Cyclops Studios, evokes a constant reminder of my commitment towards artistic, visual and technical perfection. I find it also ironic that my personal lineage suggests that the role of a foundry man is in my blood and is what I'm meant to do; my paternal last name 'Nahas" originates from the Middle East, and means 'copper smith'."
The Company’s Mission is: “Forging an Artistic Vision”.
