Birds Eye



The creative team at ITN approached Munk to produce a series of animations to sponsor the Simpsons on Channel 4, airing in conjunction with its ‘Boy with the Tail' TV commercial. We pursued a Disney-style illustrated and animated route to complement both the TV campaign and the programme being sponsored.

Concept Art

We developed many different approaches to the character designs to find the right style for the animation. The design of the characters would set the style for the animation there on, so we were sure to get this locked down at an early stage.


Background art

The backgrounds for these animations were incredible fun to create. We had a great team of illustrators on board and the artwork went through many hands before they reached the final look.
