I've been working with Aardman Animation on a BAFTA Nominated Children's BBC app game.
( http://awards.bafta.org/award/2015/childrens/interactive-original )
Aardman approached me to generate the complete look and feel of the app. An amazing opportunity for me.
I developed the style along with creative director Jake Manion at Aardman. I then illustrated the elements that appear in the game, the characters and gadgets too.
I suggested a close 'depth of field' look to enhance the scale because 'le Dude' is such a little guy. As you play the game you'll see the camera zoom in and out and it really looks great. Aardmann have done an amazing job and it's a really simple and addictive game.
