Helping students with housing
every step of the way.
Whatever challenges students may face, Unipol supports them with all things housing. As a not-for-profit company, they believe in improving the quality of student accommodation in Leeds and beyond. Our warm and friendly floral animation follows a student as they nurture and grow a house plant.
The hand-drawn approach brings a softer style to Unipol’s branding. As an animation studio, we often collaborate with other designers. We worked with local Leeds illustrator, Megan Dobbyn who had created some awesome garden wall murals for Unipol.
We developed the visuals and sketched up storyboard frames, based on Unipol’s text script. Megan then took these and illustrated each scene. Along the way, we chatted about how best to set-up the illustrations and how the animation process would work as a whole. Once Unipol were happy with the visuals, it was back over to us to get this beauty moving.
The film briefly explains Unipol’s values and the ways they help make renting as stress-free as possible, so students can focus on their studies. It was released across Unipol’s social channels as well as playing on a video wall in their housing hubs in Leeds and across the UK.
The team were helpful, quick to respond to any questions, stuck to all deadlines and I'm extremely happy with the end product. They're also all super friendly, creative, and nothing was too much to ask.
