The Mission.

Animate to inspire.

The British Library curates a huge collection of rare, priceless and beautiful objects, not just books. We were asked to create a series of animated films to showcase the treasures and encourage people to make use of the wider Library facilities.
Keep it authentic.

Story telling.

We developed a distinct animation style that brought to life the richness and wealth of content available. Married with stories of genuine user experiences, the collection became tangible, exciting and accessible like never before.

Reading Rooms
Beyond the main film.

Practical guides.

As well as the main awareness film, we created a series of short practical guides to help people navigate and make use of the facilities. The same vivid animation style flowed throughout.

The animation film won best animation at the IVCA awards for its outstanding creative.
