Lynx - Get Le Girl
It might get you Le Girl. It might get you a slap in le face. One thing's for certain, it will get the party started. This animation uses the distinctive colours from the app to create a very simple but striking visual. The characters are simplified but yet retain a humorous animation style which reflects the nature of Get Le Girl.
Diageo 241 Summer Spirits
This animation is both a training and informational video for Greene King staff, so they can understand what to do when the app is presented to them at the bar. We follow Dave on his journey to the pub where he uses the 2-4-1 app to buy his mates a drink. The characters have a fluid and charming quality throughout and in combination with its fluid transitions creates for an engaging animation.
Car Parking Climax
This film shows a young couple reversing their car into an incredibly tight parking space, aided by a rather erotic reverse parking sensor. As well as being involved with the entire pitch process, once we were awarded the project I accompanied the shoot with the 3rd party production crew and graded / edited the final advert.
Promo showcasing this year's Lucozade 'yes' campaign. The TV footage has been edited together from the TV adverts which aired during the summer. I created the rest of the animations using a combination of Aftereffects and Cinema 4d. Music is a bootleg of Idealistic and Pogo by Digitalism which has been remixed by Beni on Soundcloud.
I created the end frames and graded the footage for a series of films aimed at driving registrations to the Lynx Space Academy. Entitled ‘An astronaut never has to…’ these films highlight the visible advantages that astronauts have when it comes to getting the girl. I used mainly Cinema 4d to animate the logo flying over the earth's atmosphere and afterwards I compiled it in Aftereffects.
Nissan You Plus Awards
This animation showcases the events offered to Nissan customers of the You + Rewards scheme. The animation shows the plus taking centre stage and all the rewards that are on offer animate around and through it. I created the entire animation using Cinema 4d and edited the sound effects in Adobe Premier.
BBC Opinion Formers
This 40 second advert promotes a selection of programs available on the various BBC channels in that particular week. However, this version does not feature the final music score that appeared on British television. I produced this video in calibration with Falon and the Art and Graft Studio.
This animation shows an ECG machine, the camera then pans into a close up. The spikes of a heart rate monitor morph into a silhouette of a couple in varying sexual positions. As the passion intensifies their heart rates increase, until the ECG monitor is brought crashing to the ground.
Google Web Academy
This short animation explains how to grow your business using the Google Web Academy site online tool. I incorporated printing dots to make it more unique as Google's adverts tend to use some form of textured paper. The animation continuously scales to create a feeling of continual movement and this helps to bring the different elements together.
Sky Sports News Germany
This animation was played at the launch event of Sky Sports News in Germany. The logo breaks apart into lots of objects that represent the different technologies, professions and sports that go into making the channel. The elements slowly begin to come together and resolve at the end to form the Sky Sports logo.
Zeitgeist Opening Titles
Zeitgeist is a collection of inspiring videos shown to the viewing public. This video was one part of two videos played as the introduction at the annual conference held over two days. It's has a very graphical approach and contains many visual / word plays that help to tell this kinetic type story.
Nissan Juke Story
How did they think of it? Where did it come from? What really inspired the first compact crossover of its kind? In this video we hear the story of how Juke evolved from a simple sketch, to the one of the most unique and exciting cars on the road today. A car that is truly Built to Thrill with a unique story to be told.
Nick the Greek
Typographical response taken from the film, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. This video was one of the first kinetic videos and plays out the words in an entertaining and unsuspecting fashion. It now has half a million views on YouTube this is without any seeding, just word of mouth.
The Coal Exchange
National Waterfront Museum
This video is a documentary about the activities of the Cardiff Coal Exchange at the height of the coal trade in 1911-13. It takes as its theme a typical day’s trading, and allows the visitor to see how, from one building, arrangements could be made for coal to be mined, transported, loaded on ships and exported across the world.
I was given the challenge to revamp a film about Malaria as the GSK client was not happy with it the previous animation. I created a storyboard with very simple graphical approach and I added new fonts to try to balance out the main font used which was 'Impact'. I also simplified the colour palette and added some 3D elements, as well as overlaying some photographic imagery.
A two minute visual burst of all my best bits over the past couple of years in the commercial world. Enjoy!
The New Beetle 2
I designed the social media elements and refreshed the coms panel for the launch of the new Beetle 2 car by Volkswagen. The main tag line was 'it's back' and this was make consumers aware of the Beetle's new more masculine boot and overall body shape. This was important for VW because the feedback from the original car was that its shape was too feminine.
Laing O'Rourke Site
Visual treatment for Laing O’Rourke global site. A simple and bold visual navigation for a company that makes grand and iconic structures. It was to be built purely in HTML5 and would be heavily template based, so new content could be added quickly and effectively. I worked on this project whilst freelancing at Imagination.
Nokia viNe was a breakthrough mobile application that records photos, videos, and music while geo tagging them to a multimedia map of the user’s life. Then other user's would be able to follow their friends vines and tag and share their own content with one another. I produced all design work whilst working at R/GA.
The site uses the globe as the central device to access all relevant information about concerts, interviews, clubs locations and links relevant to those cities nightlife. The user would be able to access the Bacardi database which would grow and develop over time. This would bring the brand closer to its target audience and would increase brand awareness.
Blive Beatology is a musical microsite; it features the beat boxer Beardyman. Customising a mixture of different sounds, with the left heads being the treble parts and the right heads being the drum parts on the right. I built all the stacked speakers and monitors on the homepage as well as creating the site's design.
McCain Potato Gourmet
The McCain Potato Gourmet was a microsite designed to promote a new Gourmet range. The different products are selected from the homepage. On selection the ingredients begin to spin and then a slow matrix style freeze frame happens to list the ingredients. Afterwards, they spin again to create the completed plate and the user can also look up new recipes.
Montano Italian Cider
Montano is a brand new premium Italian cider. The video was showcased at the opening launch event and was then played in stores across the UK. Flying through the logo we then undertake in an epic adventure through the beautiful Italian landscape. Seeing the special qualities and unique environment that helps to grow the delicious eating apples that creates the cider.
The Xperia Z1 was hidden in 5 different UK locations. The competition was played out in a series of online clues and teasers. The user could guess from any of the staggered twitter clues which became progressively easy to identify it's location. I created all the teasers and clues that went out leading up to the event and I also created the showcase video of the day.
Stand Up To Cancer
Stand Up To Cancer
Stand Up To Cancer approached Dare and asked them to create a 2 minute animation. The main aim of this piece was to explain how the charity uses donations to help fund clinical testing for future cancer treatments. With the combination of 2D and 3D elements I created an engaging bold piece of content for their site. The beautiful illustrations were created by Darren Whitney.
This campaign was displayed on big screens in airports and train stations across the whole of Europe. I was keen to add another element to the animation as the illustration style heavily referenced Saul Bass, and I didn't want it be a direct copy of his style. I chose to recreate the illustrations in 3D and to have the camera fly through the models within the sequences.
Barclays Digital Eagles
Barclays Digital Eagles are trained members of staff who can give advice to members of the public. Barclays wanted us to produce a serious of videos publicising this service. They wanted us to give the videos a more refreshing look that people could relate to. I decided that the footage should have a 'hand held' feel, and the introduction of animation would help it to have more appeal.
