“The Cube” campaign for the ADC 98th Annual Awards call for entries

Unveiled today, “The Cube: Part Two”, created by UK-based animator and illustrator Laurie Rowan, is here:  


Speaking about the work, Rowan ( said:

“I received a minimal briefing from COLLINS, was told it was open to interpretation and to bring my own sense of fun and style to the piece.  I work mainly with characters and get a lot of fun out of crowd dynamics, so when they told me to make the iconic ADC Cube drop into a ball pit, it felt natural to me to turn them into variety of wonky creatures.  The only limitation I set for myself was that the top of each character had to be the same in order to disguise them as balls upon scene entry.  I had a lot of fun with this one.”

Campaign background:

COLLINS ( developed the campaign, placing the iconic ADC Cube on a journey from adversity to achievement.  Through six animated acts, the Cube pushes through challenge after challenge as it seeks to define its place in the universe.
