Nursery Rhymes have long been depicted visually. A nostalgic style of hand painted brush strokes and muted water colours.
We developed a style that felt inherently of the era. Using animation techniques and design principles that have been around for over a century. Hand painted cell animation provided a textural quality, that seamlessly integrated our characters into the backgrounds.
Our layouts and storytelling took their lead from picture books. Flowing camera moves with seamless transitions allowed the viewer feel like they were moving through pages of a familiar story, with a twist.
