Pocko Lab invited animator Ben Pearce to collaborate on one of the most heartwarming projects in recent memory. Working alongside the agency 1861United, Pocko and Filmmaster Productions produced a 30" tv-spot and print campaign for the Ospedale Pediatrico Bambino Gesù, Italy's most famous children's hospital based in Rome. Our animation tells the true story of Marco; a young boy desperately in search of a new heart, and whose life is transformed through the generosity of public donations. The short animation has been welcomed with great adoration throughout Italy, and more importantly has brought smiles and hope to the children of the OPBG. The beautiful soundtrack "True Life" was kindly contributed by singer Malika Ayane. We are all very honoured to have worked on this very special project.
WIRED magazine recently commissioned Cruschiform to illustrate part of their Wired World 2014 section, which highlighted some of the key trends they think will be huge next year. The diverse (and often abstract) topics covered ranged from the impact of smartphones, to social trends and environmental concerns. We love her highly creative and graphical interpretation of these subjects. To view more of Cruschiform's work please click here. This issue of WIRED is out now in the UK!
Jessica Dance, London-based set designer and art director extraordinaire, recently collaborated with photographer Benedict Morgan to shoot these new Fendi 'bug bags' for Wonderland magazine.
