A few more examples from our work with brands




Marshalls – Biodiversity animation

We helped hard landscaping suppliers, Marshalls, shout about the ways their customers can increase biodiversity in their gardens. The explainer animation complements their stand at BBC Gardener’s World event at the NEC dedicated to sustainable garden choices. To increase the film’s longevity, we created two versions of the explainer animation, one for at the event and one for Marshall’s social feeds. The film was really well received, helping homeowners with their landscaping choices.



Saltaire Brewery – Brand launch

Continuing our collaboration with Saltaire Brewery, we scripted, filmed and edited their new brand launch film. It was great to help this much-loved Yorkshire brand unveil their new look, and reveal four new beers. The film was released over Saltaire’s social media channels during their nationwide launch events, giving beer fans a chance to hear the story behind the update. In the first week the film had over 35,000 views and nearly 200 shares. 




DHL – Comic book animation

DHL makes sure your parcels arrive where you need them, when you need them. We brought to life illustrations showing the behind-the-scenes work that goes into that all important present getting to you on time. We developed this comic-book animation so that the illustrations could be adjusted for different customer journeys.



Bruntwood – Platform launch

Working with our friends over at Blackbox Creative, we created this character animation to show the wide variety of people that share a space at Platform – Bruntwood’s workspace in the heart of Leeds city centre. Bruntwood wanted to challenge the preconceptions people had about the office space feeling ‘too corporate’, so we put our heads together and created a range of eye-catching characters that were working in the space. We brought each of character to life with individual fun quirks and personalised office spaces’ showcasing all Platform offers.

The Little Motel team were brilliant to work with and instantly understood the brief and what we needed. Their attention to detail, flexibility, and passion for what they do resulted in a great animation piece, and a client who was incredibly happy with the results.
