Welcome to NERD! We love the idea of crafting something featuring diverse animated characters as this is a part of our ethos here at NERD. We promote and advocate for diversity on every level from our talent roster to the crew on set as well as our animated actors too!
Since you have the look set it is pretty much the case of brining together our team who can take that & animated them in a fluid and hand crafted approach.
Below are just a few examples that came to mind of characters that are drawn by hand (they do range in visual style but the technique is the same). They have different levels of texture and detail applied to them. Keep in mind these are for different brands with different briefs in mind so for your film we can take the guidelines and work with those in order to craft visuals that stand out and engage our global audiences in a relevant approach.
We are active diversity and inclusion advocates, constantly seeking, nurturing and empowering young talent, female talent and talent from under-represented backgrounds. Our goal is to help change and reshape our industry to be a more diverse and inclusive one, today, tomorrow and for future generations to come.
We are a creative production studio representing a diverse range of hand-picked directors and illustrators, crafting live-action, animation, mixed-media and illustration styles for TVCs, online content, OOH/DOOH and more.
