Telstra : Gingerbread

“We wish we could all be so lucky was this sweet li’l Telstra Gingerbread fella!”


The geometric styling of the existing Telstra world translated beautifully into a Christmas scene complete with a Gingerbread house, candy canes and icing decorations. Shane’s fantastic designs set us on a good path for a sweet punchy setup.


Christmas can be a costly time. Telstra is here to assure you it doesn’t have to cost ‘an arm and a leg’, and our hero is a plucky, cup-half-full kinda guy. Saved by the magic of his growing candy cane forest, it ends on a happy note.


We had a fantastic team on this project, so it ran so smoothly. From Shane on designs, Ben’s boards and then Matt’s great animation. Gary and Serge pulled it all together at the end with some beautiful lighting and compositing. Thank you everyone for a fantastic job!
