Exciting new London based creative agency, Fred & Eric has officially launched with a directive staff made up of Sarah Killeen, Jamie Pigram and creative director Maggie Rogers; who met whilst working at design and animation agency Mr & Mrs Smith.
Fred and Eric will offer clients a unique, multidisciplinary creative service specialising in a playful combination of design, illustration, animation and craft to create work that is inspirational and unique.
Although only officially launched last week, Fred and Eric has already caught the attention of Richard Curtis and Comic Relief who, impressed with previous
work from the directive staff, have commissioned the new agency to create a bespoke animation for Red Nose Day as highlighted in yesterday’s Brand Republic article.
Creative Director Maggie Rogers says; “Our ethos is that design should be fun and engaging. As a company we place a strong emphasis on collaboration, to produce stand out work that utilises traditional craft and design techniques from specialist model makers, illustrators, animators, photographers etc. Where possible we want to make things for real, ensuring that each job will have a unique style and approach.”
Fred & Eric’s logo will constantly change to keep
the brand fresh and move with graphic trends, whilst reinforcing the companies’ focus on collaboration.
Rogers continues; “We hope to choose a new ampersand design to showcase every month, promoting the work and skills of the variety of people we work with; from woodcuts, to illustrations, to photographs or 3D graphic representations, we welcome all submissions!”
