We were contacted by John Earle to animate a poem written for M∙A∙C Cosmetics, A Tartan Tale Collection. M∙A∙C gave us hi-res photos shot by Tim Walker, and asked us to add subtle motion to each photo. Then, in turn to add that to a stylized book based on the photo shoot. The animation was projected on a large screen behind the poem reader; and he was able to control the page turns and animation.
On our recommendation, MAC asked us to design the elements and create interaction for a tablet based app and in-store touchscreen experience.
