Keen on engaging a new audience of digital natives, the broadcaster challenged us to use our visual thinking and animation skills to bring their audio content to life and attract people to their traditional broadcasts via their website. Our ongoing relationship with the corporation means that we are often asked to help with challenging content and narratives such as those pictured below...
