Merry Christmas from jelly London & the DRUM

Fri 13 Dec 2013

We collaborated with The Drum, media brand of the year, for their 2013 Christmas Cover. Check out our witty office party scene, hand illustrated by Hannah Warren and animated by the jelly House animation studio. The Drum liked our idea of bringing it's final issue of 2013 to life with a unique and interactive front cover, so to mark the onset of Christmas and to celebrate the topic of digital disruption – (which is the theme of the issue) – they used image-recognition platform Blippar to create an eye-catching cover that comes to life. 

From everyone at jelly London, we hope you have a ‘Merry Christmas!’  And in case you wanted to know more about Hannah Warren our illustrator, we asked her 5 leading questions...

The 1960’s travel posters of Tom Purvis. The dream of one day living in the utopia of the Barbican. As well as cycling, over hearing peoples conversations, walking by the Thames, all you can eat buffets and drink drawing.
