3D isometric animation for The Guardian

Project Overview: Animated explainer video using motion design to explain the key points on writing a cover letter when applying for a job.

Client: The Guardian Jobs


About the project

This was the second animation I created for the Guardian Jobs "how to" series, and after reading the script; I decided to try something a bit different for this one.

The script mentions doing research on a company which instantly got my mind thinking about a heist, blueprints, and then how best to illustrate a company building. All this lead me to create a 3D building, the isometric style seemed to fit nicely with the whole style and feel of the first video too.

The team really liked the initial renders so I decided to incorporate more 3D elements throughout the entire video, all in all making it a really really fun project to work on!

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
