Here are some of the fun concept sketches of one of our favorite characters from Windy Day - the squirrel!
nice little write-up on a project I worked on with Motorola. we made an animated 3D short for their new phone, the Moto X, in which the phone screen acts as the free-moving camera inside the space where the story is taking place. I got to art direct the short (as well as this limited-run box) with Mark Oftedal as character designer and Jan Pinkava directing, as well as a whole crew of hugely talented people. It was a great project and I’m proud to have been on it!
Our amazing Creative Director Jon Klassen shared a bit about his experience working on Windy Day on his beautiful tumblr.
This Monday we’re just thinking of a few of our favorite moments with Pepe the mouse in Windy Day!
Pepe poses! Here are some of the many poses that our favorite mouse strikes during his adventure with the red hat in Windy Day.
Phase two of our Windy Day pop-up locations involved a total transformation of the spaces. We brought Pepe’s world out of your phone and built an indoor forest for you to explore. Of course there were also plenty of phones for people who hadn’t experienced Windy Day yet! What do you think? Look like fun?
A couple of weeks ago, when Windy Day was just about to launch, we set up temporary creative spaces in New York and Chicago and invited people to come in, explore and get creative. As adults, we often need a little help loosening up so we enlisted the the famous sketch and improvisation group, Upright Citizens Brigade, to help people share some of their own stories before experiencing ours.
Stay tuned for part two when the space gets totally transformed!
We’ve just kicked off the Spotlight Stories community on Google+. Stop by to share your favorite Windy Day moments and chat to other people who are excited about what’s coming next!
To celebrate the release of Windy Day we built pop-up creative spaces in Chicago and New York and invited passers-by to come in and explore Jan Pinkava’s immersive world. Here are a few pictures!
