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.

Our friends at Blue Moon invited us to work with them on bringing the Telkom Story to life. We had some fun taking a regular 2D car and making it 3D. Watch the video below to see how we tackled the project.

To This Day is an animation based on the poem by Shane Koyczan’s spoken word poem of the same title. It is a poem about childhood bullying. The animation contains a 20 second animation collaboration from 87 different animators. It is absolutely stunning and it addresses many of the traumas that occur during childhood. It concludes by deeming the strength of the victim as beauty. The design is elegant complimented with an extremely well written piece of poetry; I tear up every time I watch it.
For the Style Frames Design Conference held last November in New York, Tel Aviv-based artist and animator Eran Hilleli was asked to create an opening titles sequence that would set the tone for the event and list the names of various speakers. The result is this short three-minute video of converging characters that’s almost too wonderful to describe. I’ve watched this at least 5 times over the last two months and every time it gives me chills. I wish this was a full-length movie, or more likely a video game, something more immersive to learn more about all the different creatures that appear so briefly. Music by Disasterpiece.

Friction is a distorted geometric typeface that intentionally puts emphasis on it’s graphic appearance. The minimalistic core of the typeface is built around geometric shapes. Two secondary layers of graphic elements create more abstract letterforms. The many small moving parts create a fluttering, organic feeling.
