Cardiff-based Companies House invited Savage and Gray Design to create a set of eye-catching animations to explain their online services. The animation team developed some fun characters to appear throughout the series, including Mary Beery – brewer of organic craft beer, Minty Imperial – owner of The Grooming Emporium, James Joist – master builder, Tanya Tallow – handcrafted candle maker and Florian Starchild Potts – florist and plant enthusiast. The first episode features Tanya and James, as well as James’ rival Jerry Bilt the Brickie, to explainer how company information can be accessed via the Companies House website, and how that information can be used to find the right services.
