Nickelodeon 'Winter Refresh'

  • Nickelodeon 'Winter Refresh'
    from Aardman Nathan Love
  • I was Art Director on this super fun project at Aardman Nathan Love. We created 21 wintry themed bumpers for Nickelodeon, reimagining classic characters in a hand crafted 3D aesthetic. Below is a supercut of the spots and a bunch of designs I made along the way. A huge thank you to the amazing team at Aardman Nathan Love and the wonderful folks at Nickelodeon.
  • Layouts
  • Layout drawings made as guides for building out the 3D scenes. 
  • Props
  • 21 spots leads to a lot of props. These were a lot of fun.
  • Color Keys
  • These were rough studies done to get a sense of the color and lighting for each spot. The amazing lighting and compositing team would use these as a starting point and then go wild, creating magical winter wonderlands.
  • Stills
  • Stills from the final spots.
  • The Reject Pile
  • They can't all be winners. These are some boards that didn't make the cut, but I still like them.
