Delivery Dudes

Over the past few months, we’ve been working with the guys at Delivery Dudes to help create a company mascot and integrate him into their products. We were tasked with finalizing an initial character concept (originally designed by the one and only Bryan Waterman), producing a series of still images of the character, and creating some animations that will be included in a future update to the app.

We can’t say anything else at the moment, but we’re excited about the final results and can’t wait to share more!

“Caveman” Animated Ad (Sneak Peek)

For the past 8 months, we’ve been working on an animated ad for a new mobile app. The app itself is still in development and we still have a tiny bit of work left to do on the ad, so the full animation isn’t ready for public release; however, we’d like to share a sneak peek!

We’re very proud of our work on this project and can’t wait to share the full ad!

Eyebominations Animated Intro

Eyebominations is a new series from EyeofSol that seeks to find the absolute worst animation productions and attempts to dissect them in a hilarious fashion.

We had the opportunity to team up once again with What a Bee! Studios to produce the intro for this new series. This was a deeply collaborative project that you’ll be able to learn more about in our MAKING OF segment.

You can check out the intro animation here:

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. This included designing the Antwon Spinach logo. While this wasn’t exactly a top priority, we still gave it the proper time and treatment that any logo design 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 various comic books for inspiration. Our initial goal with the logo was to make it feel like a logo that could be seen on a classic Saturday morning cartoon. 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.

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. To say the least, it was an interesting project to work on.

This marks the first time that we were asked to produce the art and animation in an anime style. When we first started studying animation (over 15 years ago), anime was the very first style that we sought to replicate. In fact, anime is what inspired us to pursue animation and attempt to hone our skills. But that was over 15 years ago.

Diving back into the world of anime took some studying and review of what we had learned and practiced back then. We’re pretty happy with the end results of this ad, but due to the incredibly short turnaround time that we had for this project, we couldn’t push it as far as we wanted to. Still, we’re happy with what we’ve managed to do within the time frame.

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