How to negotiate a pay rise - The Guardian Jobs

I was commissioned by the Guardian Jobs team to help animate the "how to" series they were producing.

There were six videos to produce in total, each script covering a different career topic: "how to write a CV", or "how to negotiate a pay rise" for example.

The animation needed to be simple and lighthearted as there's quite a lot of information in each of the videos, the first video I produced helped set out the general style and tone which was then used throughout the series.

I was also keen to give each of the videos its own unique elements, something different for each to help keep things interesting.
This meant I pushed myself to explore new techniques such as; incorporating 3D elements, animating text in a new way, or creating unique line icons!

I had so much fun working on this project, The Guardian Jobs team were great to work with.
