To launch the Google+ app feature #thisplace, we were commissioned by AKQA San Francisco to produce a 60 second spot using our distinctive paper style. Working with a talented team of 3D animators and paper artists, we were able to seamlessly mix tactile, handcrafted elements into stunning digital sets – all within a very tight deadline.
