This painting of Eindhoven city is quite elaborate, so we kept the video longer.
In this World War II scene, we see German bombers flying over Eindhoven. The dramatic perspective of the buildings pulls the eyes upwards, to the sky, where ominous clouds give off a brooding atmosphere. A brown and yellow palette enhances the gritty, historic feel.

A Strijp-S background inspired by the Dutch Design Week, one of the many cultural cornerstones of the past 100 years of Eindhoven. From our short “Eindhoven: From Now Till Then”, which can be seen in the post below.
We’re excited to show you a little of our home town, so we loved when Cultuurstation asked us to create a journey of 100 seconds through 100 years of Eindhoven in celebration of the city’s anniversary. In the first place to motivate kids to discover more about the city, but also for the older ones to spot all the famous and maybe not so famous trademarks.
The client requested to put as much of Eindhoven’s culture and history into a short amount of time. That’s why we chose to focus the animation on being a visual journey with an energetic flow backwards in time, while playing with Eindhoven iconography, until we reach the point where it all began. Inspired by the urban feel of the city, the look & feel became a combination of colourful and surrealistic imagery over realistic looking hand-painted backgrounds of familiar spots. Like graffiti on an industrial wall.

Maybe a new showreel for 2020 will add a little positivity to this year
What the old Nicker Paint office looked like… This painting was inspired by a Luca Papeo painting, as well as the recent demolishment of this building. After 45 years Nicker Poster Colour had to move out, and we wanted to gift this as a small token when I visited them a few days ago.
For the animation, we wanted to keep things loose & cartoony, and to animate the feet as if they were little stamps leaving behind their painterly paw prints.
Dennis van Hout was inspired to create this fantastic animation of a suspenseful chase over our Medieval Cathedral background. Thanks, Dennis! Check his Instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/dennisvanhoutart/
