When Pugh’s Garden Centre approached us in October with a creative brief so tasty you could eat it, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to not only get us in the Christmas mood, but showcase our award-winning illustration and animation skills, too.
One of Cardiff’s most loved garden centres, Pugh’s firmly believe in giving back to the local community. Which is why, every December, they create a truly magnificent, magical and memorable Christmas experience for children (and adults) to enjoy.
At the heart of this experience is a ride on the Candyland Express: a train like no other that takes its passengers on a journey featuring more exciting, edible twists and turns than you can shake a candy cane stick at.
Wanting to take their festive experience to a whole new level, Pugh’s asked us to create a brand new video from scratch, which would be played in front of an audience already sat in Christmas-clad carriages.
Working closely together and having taken the client’s brief, S3’s Art Director, Leanne Bisby, and Media Production Assistant, Jay Baulch, went to work on storyboarding, illustrating and animating the video.
Combining a clean, crisp illustration style with a fun, festive-fuelled animation, the final video not only met the client’s expectations, but far exceeded them, too. Just hit ‘play’ below to find out why yourself:
