The new boutiq.

We started out in 2006 as a motion design and animation studio and that’s what we remain focused on today. But since then, we’ve grown into an established production company that has produced over 250 films. Our directors and artists have gained an immense amount of firsthand experience about what consumers and brands want while remaining truthful to our credo: to put good storytelling and outstanding design at the heart of your strategy. Our work is consistently recognized by major national and international awards organizations for both creative solutions and technological innovation.

Mobiliar. The Friendly Pandemic.

August 23, 2013 – Friendliness is contagious. The Virus Mobiliarus is at the heart of Mobiliar’s latest brand campaign, which focuses on the genial spirit that has made the insurance company the most personal and popular company in Switzerland. The film’s message, “our customers are the happiest in the world” is ironically encapsulated in a story about a friendly but highly contagious virus.
Motion Design director Sebastian Harms and boutiq were commissioned by Mobiliar to create a tongue-in-cheek motivational film with a twist. Harms’ craft of creating visually rich clips, and the clever use of transitions allows this stylishly animated, 2D film to leave a lasting impression on its audience, both visually and emotionally.
