I'm old enough to remember OJ's slow-speed chase in his white Ford Bronco ruining our college graduation party back in '94 as we all became transfixed by the events unfolding on TV. RIP Juice.

New 3D animation we created for Komatsu Europe.

A tribute to the Double R Diner from Twin Peaks fame where pies go to die. We created this in Blender which gives us full control in 3D to swoop in from above and zoom in on Agent Cooper’s coffee cup and cherry pie. We’re being asked by clients to do more 3D animation work like this…it’s a great way for brands to image themselves in a fun new perspective.

Who could use some summer right about now?

Here’s another identity we recently created. Lockbox was engineered to be the first private network to store private keys and cryptocurrency wallets eliminating having to use the Internet to transfer or store any crucial personal data. We crafted a hexagon-shaped logo with a lock inside to reflect the tech company’s focus on innovation and security. The mark also has optical duality, able to be seen as either 2D or 3D.

SoundMind Creative Group was founded in 2021 by a trio of entertainment industry executives to shine a light on important issues, with their first documentary, Follow the Science, slated for release in early 2023. We designed and animated the logo with rays of light beaming up from the center and changing color to reflect the production company’s desire to change outlooks with their documentaries.

Very excited for the BankX launch from a client we’ve been working with for over decade. The stunning amount of innovation in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies can leave you spinning. Designed for individual freedom, BankX aims to turn the industry on its head by being the first cryptocurrency to pay you interest for minting a stablecoin. We customized a bold, clean typeface to inspire instant trust, then multiplied the X for a dynamic, forward-thrusting mark. We love creating logos….Zookeeper has been designing brand identities for almost 20 years.

In the exploding universe of podcasts, our friends at Noisy Neighbors inject humor and insightful tactful analysis into every show. Zookeeper created the illustrated mugs of Joey and Mulv, capturing the likeness of the uproarious, hilarious hosts of the Manchester City pod. The vibrating sound waves emanating from both character illustrations also double as an ode to Manchester’s music history.

Puppet Maker enables users to create a unique puppet at the touch of a button and start producing their own fun videos. Here’s the case study detailing how we created them: https://zookeeper.com/work/character-animator-puppets

The song “Down to Mechanics” by the Dimestore Dolls tells the story of someone who on paper should be a perfect fit but in reality, everything is wrong. To animate the video, we imagined a comic-book inspired look with limited, jerky-type movement of a Frankenstein-esque creature who comes to life, rises up and gazes upon a skyscraper in the distance, thinking it’s his true love. As the mechanical monster gets closer, he realizes it’s all been a terrible mistake…and disaster ensues.

We bring characters to life.

Zookeeper is an animation and branding studio based in Los Angeles.

We’ve helped clients like Nike, Fox Sports, NBC, Conan O’Brien and many more by animating content that grabs attention, builds younger audiences and creates loyal followers.

Working with Adobe’s Advanced Product Development Team, we’re utilizing new game-changing technologies that allow us to animate using 3-D face-tracking and audio inputs for realistic movements and lip-syncing. And do so much more affordably than traditional animation. What before would take months now takes just weeks, so we can produce “snackable” content in high volume, which is perfect for bite-size applications like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or whatever is hot next month. These breakthrough technologies also let us animate in real-time, meaning live.

We’ve work with networks and brands, while also developing and producing our own IP for original animated shows.
