Yorkshire Games Festival Ident 2017
Posted 2 years ago and submitted by Andy Sykes | Share link: http://illo.cc/73499

In October 2017, I was comissioned to create an animated ident for the Yorkshire Games Festival, held at the National Science and Media Museum in the UK 8-12th November. Using Matt Lamont’s great illustrations, I created an 8-bit style mashup of early console games, set to an epic orchestral score.

I used a mix of vector animation in After Effects and some 3D in Cinema 4D Lite, for the rotating cube. The 3D blocks at the end were created inside After Effects.

I used a great plugin called Pixelate It for the SNES style text at the beginning.

"Andy is everything you need in an illustrator. Creative, approachable, reliable and extremely talented. I’ve worked with Andy on a few projects and each and every one has turned out better than expected. I commissioned him to create a mascot for my education company InspirEd Workshops. The Mascot was brilliant, so good that I then asked him to create a channel ident which would appear at the end of our videos. I will continue to go to Andy for all of my illustration and animation needs and would recommend him to everyone".
