What’s with the cupcake?

Who doesn’t like cupcakes? The cupcake logo is just a fun way of expressing our branding. It catches the eye, it’s visually interesting, it’s accessible, and it’s easily identifiable.

Besides, it’s fun and we like it.


I have a great idea! Who can I tell?

Tell your friends. Tell your parents. Tell your loved ones. And tell us!

We love hearing your ideas. Whether it’s an idea to improve our website, an idea for the next big blockbuster film, or an idea on how we can eliminate all the people in front of us in long lines, we are all ears! Just send us an email at .


Don’t you know a hotcake is a pancake?

Of course we do. While we realize that our company name is written as “hotcakes”, it isn’t to be taken quite so literally. Our name is meant to be “hot cakes”. Two words. And who doesn’t like a hot cake, fresh out of the oven?

In other words, relax; It’s just a logo. A tasty tasty logo.


I want to work for Hotcakes! Who can I talk to?

Regrettably, we are not looking to hire anyone for the foreseeable future. We are a small company who works on our own ventures in collaboration with Moonrise Productions and on interesting projects for our small but loyal list of clients. As such, there isn’t a lot of cash flow to go around hiring everyone we want to.

But, if you think you have what it takes to be a part of the Hotcakes team, prove it. Send Andy an email at and tell him why he should hire you. All resumes are kept on file so when the opportunity for growth presents itself, we are ready. Want to increase your chances? Here are a few tips:

  • Personality is important! We are a close group of friends, and anyone who joins us should be ready to work hard, and party harder. We have a lot of fun, so don’t be a stick-in-the-mud.
  • Be creative. And show it! We are a creative company after all.
  • Be passionate. We love what we do, and so should you. You should be excited to be coming in to work.
  • The more diversified you are, the better your chances. If you are a web programmer who also shoots and edits video, designs in Illustrator, and creates animation, let us know! Our projects vary greatly from one project to the next. If you can help in more than one area, you’ve increased your odds of us needing you.
