The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards set out to reward innovation and impact in corporate sustainability and they very kindly asked us to make a short animation to encourage entries. The gist of it is that there are plenty of people working in both large and small organisations who are helping build sustainability into business and they deserve [...]
Our latest @intelligence2 iq2 Short has launched! Part of the Shell-sponsored Switched On series on our energy future, this talk by Professor Mike Stephenson of the British Geological Survey was part of a sell-out event on natural gas which took place last month. With hasty apologies to the beautiful town of Blackpool, Professor Stephenson addresses the [...]
Last year, D&AD teamed up with ArjoWiggins Creative Papers to launch the Blank Sheet Project in which creative heroes, including Neville Brody and Sir John Hegarty, shared their approach to a blank sheet of paper. Clearly, that theme wasn’t taken absolutely literally, but the blank sheet stood for the beginning of a new creative journey, [...]
Earlier this year, the government introduced a new law to make it easier for people to save for their retirement. It’s called Automatic Enrolment and it requires all employers to enrol their workers into a qualifying workplace scheme if they are not already in one. KPMG asked us to produce an animation to help explain that [...]
Business in the Community, a great organisation doing the vital job of promoting socially responsible business practice, asked us to help them bring to life some important messages about Inclusive Leadership as part of their Opportunity Now gender equality campaign. We’ve featured some unusual workplaces in this animation, and well, you can’t really get more diverse [...]
We’re delighted that our short promo animation for the new @canongatebooks publication The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking by @oliverburkeman has already gathered nearly 30,000 views. Following the book’s central principle to the letter, we honestly didn’t waste any time or energy imagining that people would watch and enjoy it. The fact [...]
Our latest animation for @intelligence2 – following on from our recent animation of George Monbiot and Simon Zadek’s climate change debate - is now live. Part of the Shell “Switched On” series of events on our energy future, this one sees Professor Michael Düren of DESERTEC argue that we can harness the African desert sun to power the world.
As a consequence of our involvement in the If Conference late last year, the stylish folk over at Wallpaper asked us to create an illustration to accompany their article on Intelligence Squared, If, and the growth in future-focused, speaker-driven events. We tackled it as we did the work we subsequently produced for many of the [...]
Our latest #iq2short was launched earlier this month. We’ve animated a lively joust between environmentalists George Monbiot and Simon Zadek as they take opposing positions over the motion ‘London’s Climate Change Policy Should Begin in Beijing.’
We recently completed two animations for Body and Soul, an amazing charity that offers support, hope and inspiration for children, young people and families affected by HIV. Briefed to create two films on HIV and how it is transmitted, the scripts, on first read, looked tricky to combine with our typically bright and breezy visuals. [...]
Back in May, with the Middle East in revolt after decades of living under oppressive dictatorships, an audience of students gathered at the Royal Society for a debate organised by the International Debate Education Association (IDEA), the Open Society Foundation (OSF), IQ2, the British Council and the International Herald Tribune. The motion: ‘The Jasmine Revolution [...]
Our first #iq2short went live last week. Based on a 10 minute edit of @intelligence2 ‘s highly-charged 2009 debate “is the Catholic Church a force for good?” Anne Widdecombe and Stephen Fry fire pro and anti Catholic Church shots at one another, accompanied by our stylish and witty visuals. @stephenfry described it as “a rather fancy job,” which, [...]
@Stephenfry versus Ann Widdecombe. Round One! These caricatures were created by Scriberia for an animated debate we created with @intelligence2 titled “Is the Catholic Church a force for good?” which should be going onto Youtube in a few days time. We’ll let you know a bit more about the animation once it’s up but we [...]
Here’s a stop frame whiteboard animation I did with a production team from GradeGuru to explain their knowledge sharing network.
