Children of Labor is a stop-motion PSA geared towards the children of labor across the globe. In our execution, we experimented with stop-motion animation and cel animation. We believe it would be appropriate to construct our set out of white foam to match the cold, winter mood with added high contrast lighting.

The narrative for this animation involves a young child working in a clothing factory in the middle of a city. The child has been working long hours and is at a bus stop waiting to get home. Eventually, a school bus comes to save the child from the destructive work environment. The bus symbolizes a hopeful future for the child. A future that involves an education.

Creative Pick: 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner: Star Wars Flat Design Characters by Filipe de Carvalho, Portugal

Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Company : Filipe de Carvalho

Project Title :  Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Category : Infographic / Icon / Pattern

Country : Portugal

In 2014, “May The Flat Be With You” was published, a flat design personal project depicting 12 classic Star Wars characters. In 2015, I was asked by Vanity Fair to develop some of the new characters from Disney’s next blockbuster “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The idea was to use some of the classic characters illustrated previously, & mix them with some new ones using the same flat design visual style.

Muse Awards - Star Wars Flat Character Design

The idea behind these illustrations is to strip down the characters to their most basic details, giving them a minimalistic look. Long shadows, strong contrasting colours & simple structuring lines helped the project maintain its clean visual style, while illustrating the characters in a very recognizable way.

With Mandarina Studio’s exceptional talent for designing fresh, sophisticated interiors, it was only fitting to redesign the brand to evoke similar qualities.

Amanda Reid’s bold, eclectic style and daring use of color was not accurately portrayed in the studio’s previous, outdated visual identity, so it was time to hit the refresh button.

Working with Amanda to understand the direction for her business, Refinery 43 created a new logo, brand identity and website to vastly set Mandarina apart from the competition and duly relate to high-end clientele in need of a unique, personalized and inspiring new look.
