Elderbrook – Capricorn (Warner Records)

As featured on It's Nice That (2018)

Astrology rules the relationship in Elderbrook's latest single Capricorn, through obsessive reading of the horoscopes and waiting to see it come true. For the new track Nicole Ginelli and Harry Butt each created one half of the same music video, working under the banner of 'opposites attract' to communicate the story . The two halves were finally combined and we watch the different sides interact and work against each other in a dance of form and colour. We each followed the same script and storyboard, bringing a personal take to each side and celebrating the ups and downs of a relationship.

Music: Elderbrook – Capricorn (Warner Music)

Adidas P.O.D. System Launch

Typographic and 3D animations for the Adidas launch party for their new P.O.D. System range.

Converse Social Media

Alongside design studio Anyways I created a visual language for the Converse social media channels. The system had to be flexible, in line with their brand aesthetic and work against a wide variety of imagery. We created typographic and compositional systems to allow the marketing team to elevate the posts into cohesive branded content.

Athletic Knights

Staff Picks

The title sequence for Staff Picks, a new series on Boiler Room. The series is of short videos where the music programmers at Boiler Room pick out their favourite performances from the archives, so the concept was to make a selection from a series of many different genres and cities that the performances span. Each episode contains different words appearing in the title sequence.

Art Direction: Margot Bowman & Josh Wiley

Profiles of Paris

I directed and animated a short animation for the UN with the help of Chen Winner, marking one year since Trump left the Paris Climate Agreement. The animation is a collection of narratives bringing together international leaders and change-makers to offer unique views on how the Paris Agreement was achieved and what lessons can be drawn for the future.
