I’ve been researching animation and design companies that have a kind of Julian Opie style and these guys are just fantastic, based in London and from the clients they’ve had I imagine too expensive for the project I’m working on now but I’ll file them away for that bigger budget job when it happens. Have a look at the website here and here’s a few videos from Youtube I found they’ve done.
