A little Hermès holiday magic

A little Hermès holiday magic

To help bring a bit of Christmas spirit to the famous brand of Hermes of Paris, Picmo had the pleasure of producing this illustration of their iconic horse. This stylized character was made entirely in CG but made to look like it was hand moulded from clay with a simple paper-based environment.

Enjoy the holidays and happy new year to you all!


Heno styleframes

We pitched several styleframes for the S4/C show Heno, which airs daily at 7pm throughout Wales. The weekday magazine series, which broadcasts live from Tinopolis studios in and on location, focuses on interesting stories about the nation's people and their communities.

The design shown above was our personal favourite, which featured glass shards of the Heno logo coming together to form the finished titles. Unfortunately it was decided that look was a bit too 'The One Show', the BBC flagship talk show and it wasn't chosen. Fortunately though, one of our other designs got the go-ahead!


Branding for S4/C show Antura

Here's the approved ID for Antura, a Welsh language childrens television series which will be broadcast on S4/C on Mondays. The series follows the adventures of eight youngsters who are left in the wilds of a secret forest in West Wales for five days and five nights.

Using wood, ropes and foliage as the primary design element and to tie in with the bushcraft theme of the show, the title will be used across all media including the opening sequence. Look closely and you'll see we even introduced some big cats, as the winner of the show will win a jungle trip to Borneo!

The Doodaa

Meet The Doodaa

This odd looking fella was created as part of an interactive book for Penguin. Can you make out the different animal parts? He has rabbit ears, an elephant's nose, bird wings, duck feet, a monkey tail, bull horns, cheetah spots and hair like a bear!

We also worked up realistic hair for this character - much like Sulley from Monsters Inc. - but it was decided that a much more stylised approach was preferred. The client liked the fact that it resembled a plastic toy. Hopefully we'll be seeing more of The Doodaa in the future!
