From helping to develop the motion for the Amazon Fire Phone, to 3D animations for Hershey’s Kisses and hand illustrated animations for Fitz and the Tantrum’s “HandClap” videos, WHBV produces animated wonder. Often motion design is the “icing on the cake” for brands, but we design for motion and consider it vital for a brand to not only consider motion, but to develop a strategy for motion. Working with clients both large and small, WHBV continues to animate and express in motion.

Illustration

Illustration design has become a staple in the WHBV arsenal. Creating rock posters, we utilize illustration along with our silkscreen print capabilities. In a majority of our design, we incorporate illustrations, all in-house. We take pride in being able to turn on a dime with our illustration styles and creative prowess. Many of our motion projects incorporate our illustration capabilities. As we develop many of our own brands we look to illustration as well as design and to create a unique experience for our clients.
