We were approached by Network BBDO to create animated inserts of a 30 second TV commercial for Virgin Money Insurance.
Our Challenge: a collage-type look that gave the feeling of information collected from different sources. This meant designing and animating in 6 different styles. Our favourite, the eight-bit video style designed on a grid and animated with traditional cell animation.
At the end of the project, all the styles and filmed footage were composited seamlessly.

Unearth International is a group of companies who identify local opportunities and aims to unlock the potential of rural communities. Aspiring to uplift locally relevant economies, Unearth targets people, making them aware of the environment that they so diligently reply on. Unearth does this by creating sustainable and locally relevant commercial partnerships.
We were challenged with clarifying the way the group communicate their structure and the value that they deliver.

Unearth Experience – Focuses on Travel & Tourism
Disruption Capital – The Finance Arm
In order to bring this to work graphically, we needed a brand that allowed each company to build off the success of the others but still allowed for differentiation. Our work needed to function for all 3 companies and leave room to expand into future companies or even sub-projects of Unearth (Schools, Businesses, and Farms).
We created a dynamic and adaptive brand by creating an icon based on “U”, a grid based on nature, and colours based on Africa.
To work on multiple formats from websites to game drive vehicles, we created a flexible relationship between the “U” and type mark. The relationship can change dynamically as and when needed.
To bring the brands together, we executed bold and striking collateral that reflects the personality of each company.

Victor Lundy was a 21-year-old architecture student when he enrolled in the military in WWII. But instead of giving up on his creative side, the soldier decided to document events on the battlefield that he was present in, in a series of sketchbooks. In these sketchbooks, he recorded everything from fallen soldiers, air raids, and beach landing crafts, to more relaxed scenarios such as soldiers resting or playing games.

Fall in love with these heartwarming illustrations by Pascal Campion. Pascal captures us with artworks that all of us can relate to. Like that time in your childhood when you would hang out with your buddies and explore the neighborhood… or that time when it was really snowy/rainy when you would sit by the window and think about life.
The beauty of Pascal’s work is it’s really relatable. It brings a sense of a kind of nostalgia. These are some fine examples of art with a sentiment.

“Even with super powers, we are all alone” is a minimalist set of illustrations created by Belhoula Amir, also known as Cosmosnail, an illustrator and character design from Lyon, France.
The inspiration behind these illustrations created by Cosmosnail is to show superheroes alone doing something related to their super powers. We see Superman flying out in space, there’s Batman lonely checking his computer system and others like Ironman, Spider-man and Wolverine.
This is a fantastic minimalist series of illustrations by the Italian illustrator Ray Oranges. It’s incredible how simple it is and how great of a connection is made with few elements. Enjoy!
