The Brief

We were asked to do the 2D animation bits for two episodes of Captain Drakins’ Bitcoin Show, which was to go up on their YouTube channel. This is a web series to explain the concept of Bitcoin, so the purpose of the visuals was only to complement the voiceover by the 3D animated hosts.

Visual Style

We used a vector illustration style for the animation, with a paper texture to add a slight hand-made feel to the visuals. The visuals were intentionally kept simple so as not to clash with the 3D animated bits and be viewed and understood easily.
