In England, meerkats sell us insurance. In France, it’s ferrets, and in the Netherlands; they have sloths!

Earlier this year I was asked to help design the new mascot for Dutch insurance company ‘hoyhoy’; Aart the sloth, along with a few other characters for a series of tv ads/marketing materials.
We went through several different versions and even more costume options before landing on the dapper pink suit seen in the video below, and I was lucky to be involved in the design process all the way through to the 3D stages.

A selection of the alternate costume design can also be found on my website.

Directed by/art direction Sam Fell and Passion Pictures. Produced by Passion Pictures

"Dan Lambert was pivotal in our poster campaign for TfL (Transport for London) warning Londoners about the potential travel problems during the Olympics. He is a truly inspirational designer and artist. His work was exceptionally timely, considered and of a consistently high quality. I can't wait to work with him again. I would recommend Dan every time, he is a unique artist."
