Happy Christmas!!

15 Dec 2010

Every year we like to create a Christmas card for all of our Clients, friends and anyone who seems in particular need of some festive cheer.

This is always a fun opportunity to spend some time in Photoshop without worrying too much about what happens, and this years design was a sort of long and drawn out experiment. I didn't really go in to it with a plan (other that than to draw attention to Aaron's hilariously bad ice skating skills!) but played around a lot with the composition and colour balance.

I did try to film myself creating it like last year, but the darned computer crashed halfway through!

Smile for London

4 Dec 2010

It's very rare that we get to create some animation for the sheer fun of it (and believe it or not, creating 24 images for every second can be the most amazing fun one can have by oneself!) but when we saw the brief for Smile for London we decided to have a go. And it only required 10 seconds, or 240 drawing - pah!

It's a competition to show animated films on the underground, to brighten up the drudging boredom of commuting, so we decided to create a film entitled "what do commuters think about?"

This was created in After Effects, with artwork created in Photoshop.

We know that we've got through the first round, which means a fancy soiree in that there London town for the final, which probably means we should go get a haircut...
