Metabrite

MetaBrite specializes in extracting every possible detail from consumer purchase receipts. Their software integrates within minutes into any existing mobile application to understand the exact items bought. Current solutions don’t provide accurate product identification; they are also reliant on human transcription. It's costly, inaccurate and not scalable. The primary purpose of our animation was to demonstrate how MetaBrite

solutions answers the problem statement and how they work. We based our concept on a flat design with some 3D elements. The Composition is always centrally set. Black contours are strongly marked here, and white and yellow colors from MetaBrite visual identification become the dominants.

Include a charity

Include a Charity’ is a non-profit organization (NPO) from Australia, whose purpose is to increase the number of people including charities in their wills. That's why the name of the campaign is "the billion-dollar question".

After getting the project, we started looking for the perfect matching style. Further work on the visual side clarified a collage style with a simplified colour palette.

Anti Ageism - social campaign

Anti-ageism is a social campaign targeting Australian citizens. Its goal is to fight ageism - discrimination related to old age. The project was extremely demanding but as we already had had the opportunity to work with this client - we knew that the bar was set pretty high. Starting with a concept stage, we already felt it was worth trying to work with linear design. It took us a long time to arrange the scenes and simplify

messages at the visual level. In such a well-designed scenario, the animator's work, with elements of cut-outs, motion design and time-lapse, was pure pleasure. Robert Ostiak helped us with the sound design and his involvement in this concept from the pre-production stage was crucial for the final result. The effect of this hard work is 2-minute animation, very memorable!
