When the agency Mekanism asked me if I wanted to go to London to create a stop motion animation for Ben & Jerry’s and eat lots of ice cream with the art director Jess Deacon, I didn’t need asking twice.
Seriously inspired by their delicious ‘Topped’ range, we rode our sugar high into a sweet and whimsical world where salted caramel vines climb and chocolate brownies grow on trees that are watered with delicious liquid fudge.
