Taking inspiration from tapestries of yesteryear

Work / The Royal Mint / Queen's Beasts 2018


The Royal Mint needed to showcase its latest range of coin designs; all steeped in history, and some featuring mythological creatures.

We used animation to tell the story of these designs, allowing us to show unicorns, dragons and moments in history without restriction. We took inspiration from tapestries of yesteryear, namely the Bayeux, with original characters and scenes illustrated.
