We are more: Illustrator Animators who work together with a creative attitude that supports and questions. We visually unpick the world around us. We use research, investigation and testing to drive content and context. We look at the world differently. We take small things and look closer. We take the personal and make it more universal and we take the vast and make it more digestible.
We investigate social issues, current affairs, history, technology. We ask more questions and provide a different way of thinking because we are not always experts. We are natural storytellers who create narrative in the mundane and the extraordinary. We look, we draw, we create, we build, we film, we make things move and give them space. We want things to stay with you, function for you and resonate within the world. We try to give things a bit more time. We solve immediate problems but we also consider their lasting effects.
The way we work is rarely linear: we use play to challenge ourselves more. The idea drives the process, we manoeuvre around numerous mediums and apply ourselves across multiple disciplines. We edit and focus and provide lenses to see through. We lean on each other and support each other. Our voices together allow us to do more. Through collaboration we are able to understand our perspective in relation to others. This makes us stronger. We are more.
