Miquel is a joy to be around and I highly recommend any opportunity to work with him." - Natasha Khatwani-Lakhani, Lead Producer at DDB Canada.

We've won many awards together and can't wait to work again soon." - Kevin Mak, Creative Director at Thinkingbox.

Projects

Gourmet House

We redesign Gourmet House Caviar’s vanity and e-commerce websites to establish the brand as the industry’s leading purveyor of fine gourmet products. We aim towards a contemporary look that reaches out to gourmands around the globe. We leveraged parallax scrolling to immerse users in the story behind the products, unfolding the web experience with smooth transitions to unveil content elegantly. The website experience is infused with video content, motion graphics design, and rich media to beautifully integrate and elevate every section of the site. The launch of the redesigned website was supplemented by a refresh of Gourmet House Caviar’s social media channels, and the award-winning website successfully re-established the brand’s digital presence.

Rupi Kaur

Collaboration is more than just fusing your creative energy with another artist; it's about having the same vibe and cadence. It's about creating a masterpiece. And that's exactly what we did to produce an animated artwork to be used on Ru Kaur’s American tour.
We used After Effects and Keynote to bring her poetry and illustrations to life, blending family photos and watercolor elements to tell a 90-minute visual compelling story.

The Breadwinner

We created a website to promote the release of The Breadwinner, an animated film produced by Aircraft Pictures, Cartoon Saloon, and Angelina Jolie. The story tells the tale of a strong Afghan girl named Parvana who seeks to provide for her family and reunite with her father in a society run by the Taliban. Featuring animated elements from the movie, the website uses parallax elements, sound, motion graphics and illustrations to bring the story to life. Fullscreen illustrations from the film with animated elements were incorporated as the backdrop of the design and transitions inspired from the film were aesthetically blended between pages. It also features the official EPK and immersive educational experience to engage students in learning the lessons from this 2018 Golden Globe-nominated film.
