Okay – it’s nowhere near, really, is it? But many people will be having the Thorntons Gift Guide drop through their letterboxes at the moment, and noticing the delectable range of Christmas choccy-fodder on the shelves. Well we can let you know that around this time last year, the albino igils had their sticky paws on some prototypes, some sketches, and a big brief.
Whilst Sid has had a girlfriend, Ella, for quite a while now, the latest Router Guide was to incorporate a wider set of characters. These images show Mimi and Chuck, the silver surfers and the business versions of the Sid character. They were produced for our client, DCH, to help them portray typical product usage for a given market sector, in a fun way. As with everything D-Link related, we thoroughly enjoyed coming up with them 🙂
albino igil were asked to produce some Thorntons Mr Men concept images for Derbyshire-based Thorntons Chocolates. The deadline was hours – a morning telephone conversation and an afternoon delivery for a following morning presentation. Never ones to let a client down, especially a new client, and most especially a client who makes chocolate, we jumped on the brief and devoured it with glee – every last crumb. Scrumptious 😀
Here we have our ever lovable Mr Bump, and to keep him safe from harm, he’s accompanied by Little Miss Sunshine 🙂
Sid has a new den with a funky orange sound system and the latest web streaming kit from D-Link. This image is the latest for their product brochure for digital home products. We produce all of the Sid-related work for this client and are having a thoroughly enjoyable time twiddling away 🙂
These are some of the visuals we’ve produced for Sid in the New Year – for some reason we can’t get Queen’s ‘I Want To Break Free’ out of our heads here in the hutch…agh! These images were produced for large format print, but individual assets were also delivered so our client’s web team could put together flash-based animations of the scenes for online banners and virals.
We’ve had the pleasure of producing all the CGI for D-Link’s spaceman character Sid and his sidekick Terrence the cat, both of whom have appeared all over Europe on D-Link’s websites, in virals, on posters, banners, brochures and even on Facebook! Someone in Europe decided they wanted a Banksy-style Sid to appear on a hessian bag, so one colour screenprinting would be the order of the day. So here he is – another style applied to our favourite character.
