I had the pleasure of working with Chris Silas Neal and Antfood on this spot for Kate Spade. Tasked with the simple brief of making a short for the month of December, with a theme of the colour navy.
I love the simplicity and quirkiness of Chris's work and I wanted to carry that through to the animation. I tried not to be too precious about the animation, with the aim of retaining the looseness of Chris's illustrations. It was a satisfying process for me and it felt good to be working after hours on something fun.
Antfood once again proved themselves worthy of an Awesomeness Badge, with an beautiful track that compliments the animation, intensifies the magical-ness of the spot and makes me smile.
