Kristyna Litten: Character designs for Aardman Animations

Kristyna Litten's delightful penguin character features in Aardman's recent animated ad for iglü mouth ulcer gel ordered through agency Bray Leino. The gel works by forming a shelter over mouth ulcers and sticks in place to soothe the pain and help it heal. Aardman Animations used a simple 2D drawn animation to tell the story of a penguin whose whole world is thrown out of kilter. Kristyna worked closely with director Steve Harding-Hill to develop this very cute but hapless penguin.

Check out the video on Bray Leino's page on You Tube
