When Accell Netherlands, one of the largest bicycle manufacturers the world, and biggest in The Netherlands, asks to have their story told, you don’t think twice. You get on your bicycle, defy mother nature’s quirks (rain, wind, hail, more rain…), cobblestones and other cyclists and cycle to their HQ. Trying to unite all of Acccell’s different brands like Sparta, Batavus, Koga, Loekie and Van Nicholas into one story wasn’t easy. Or so we thought… The solution was their all along: the Dutch people and the love for their bicycles. As much as the story unites Accell’s brands, it also helped get all the different departments in the company aligned and heads in the same direction.
The World Bank
Notorious for their good work in developing countries, The World Bank aims to help (local) governments, entrepreneurs and individuals thrive. One of their many projects is the Economic Brief, published in Zambia twice per year. The brief gives Zambians insights in the state of the local economy and what being done to uplift the situation. To promote the brief, this animation was produced, in under three weeks. It played on various online platforms, local screens and aired on national channel ZNBC.
One the Smithsonian Institution’s many goals is to help children thrive as global citizens. Due to a greater demand in technical solutions, education is changing. The Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC) asked to create an animation to promote and explain their STEM education program. STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering Math. The SSEC has a sharp focus on these four areas of education. They also aim to spread this STEM education all over the world; from the western world to third world countries in Africa and Asia; and from kindergarten to middle school.
