Upwork 'Hey World'


Recent, Animation

We were instantly thrilled to work on this project and help the lovely people of Duncan Channon craft a visual language to support their hilariously poignant scripts.  Their brief issued us a simple challenge:  “Just get weird with it.”  So that’s what we did.  We set out into the depths, creatively exploring and developing an animation style infused with energy suited for the in-your-face scripted vignettes.  We featured fluid transitions and engaging design to pass the baton back and forth from one moment to the next, capturing the “Hey! How can we help?” mentality of the brand.

This project gave us the chance to show off our love of cel-animation and design while sharpening our stylist chops and wit alongside an amazing team of creators.
