Back in 2012, my team at Wieden + Kennedy created Nokia Gulp, shot solely on a Nokia N8 handset. The plot as based on a Jonah-style adventure of a fisherman getting caught in a belly of a giant fish. It was the successor to Nokia Dot, the smallest animation ever, which W+K also made with Sumo Science and Aardman, again using a Nokia N8 handset.
Here is a look behind the scenes how the world’s largest animation is shot on a Nokia phone handset. We needed an army of locals to help us prepare the beach everyday for the shoot.
The advert was release across Europe initially and then globally. It has since become a favourite on Vimeo and still enjoys good ratings years after making it.

For several months leading up to the Frankfurt 2011 motorshow, I executive produced the Honda stand with an excellent team at Wieden & Kennedy. Creative directing the stand was Tom Seymour and David Bruno. You can see more of their work on their website www.davidandtom.co.uk.
Collaborating with a production company just outside of Frankfurt, Germany, a Belgian artist based in Marseille and Honda clients based across Europe and Japan, we designed, built and implemented a stand for Honda in less than 4 months from start to finish. The design was meant to visual representation of the roads to zero emissions for the motor show, one of Honda’s key cornerstone values.
The stand was covered by the full breadth of auto press and design magazines, including Wallpaper (who used one of my images).
Here are more images of the stand I took for Wieden + Kennedy’s press releases.
