FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Antwon Spinach Logo Design

In 2008 we had the privilege of collaborating with the incredibly talented Stix in an effort to help breathe life into an ambitious idea. Antwon Spinach was a cartoon bursting with creativity, humor, and positive messages.

When we signed on to help bring the idea to life, we had many objectives to accomplish, which included designing the Antwon Spinach logo. While this wasn’t a top priority, we still gave it the proper time and treatment that a logo deserves. We pulled inspiration from sources that also inspired the animation and art style for the show.

Shows like Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, and Powerpuff Girls played a big role in helping to bring the Antwon Spinach logo to fruition. We also looked to comic books for inspiration. Our initial goal with the logo was to make it feel like a logo that could be seen on classic Saturday morning cartoons. We wanted it to have a ‘superhero’ feel and be fun at the same time. Ultimately we were very happy with the outcome of the design, and the logo itself started to inspire aspects of the production.

Disney Princesses Together in New ‘Wreck-It Ralph 2’ Image

Now this is a sight to see.

Courtesy of Disney UK on Twitter, we were graced with a sneak peak image from the next trailer of Wreck-It Ralph 2. In this image we see the different princesses from the Disney universe (voiced by the living original actors) together in what is sure to be an amazing scene. We’re big fans of Wreck-It Ralph and are very excited for Ralph and Vanellope’s newest adventure into the world of the internet!

Blue Shirt Club

Never sweat a blue shirt again with Blue Shirt Club – the world’s most absorbent underarm shield!

We were brought on board in collaboration with What a Bee! Studios to produce an animated ad for Blue Shirt Club, and to say the least, it was an interesting project. This marks the first time that we were asked to develop the art and animation in a pure anime style. When we first started studying animation over 15 years ago, anime was the very first style that we sought to replicate. So we’ve had a lot of practice with the anime style, but that was a long time ago.

You’ll be able to learn more about what went into the development when we release the MAKING OF for this project. In the meantime, you can check out the ad below:
