After winning the pitch (together with FunJob) for the creation of the new idents for NICK, we jumped into an ambitious project by proposing an idea based on a mix of techniques to obtain a different result. That’s how we set out to create each ident by using the frame-by-frame animation technique first and then modelling each of them in 3D. This gave the idents a handmade appearance and allowed us to win absolute freedom in the transitions. All of this was based on an extremely minimalistic art direction and a set of great characters designed by FunJob, and received the finishing touch with the spectacular audio created by Norman Bambi.
