Jumping for the low prices
For a radical bungee jump like this, into an infinite yellow depth, you'll need nerves of steel.. or marshmallow.. or maybe just a nose for great deals like Miggy. Let dare devil Miggy show you how it’s done!
The Miggy character was an based on an existing design from Migros. It had been used in a bunch of Migros sale campaigns. We were tasked to redesign and rebuild the character, make it ready for the future, and produce animations and stills around their regular sale campaigns.

When we got the offer to take over the Miggy project, we had to rebuild and rig the character from scratch. We had to make sure it's able to stand on it's 4 legs like a pig, but also stand on 2 legs like a human, and anything in between. Miggy character had to be ready for any action, as Migros had big plans for Miggy.
The client wanted the full-cg tv-spots to be very minimal in style and without any dialog. Therefore we had to take extra care in directing the animation, to make it super clear in each shot what the character was emoting with it's face. Miggy needed to have big facial expressions but never stupid or scared.
The TV spots had 3 different versions for different sale campaigns per year, with the only difference the contents of the shopping bags.. It needed very specific products that were in sale at that moment. A detail hugely important for the client.
All the following projects were high-res visuals for use in print and online campaigns.
