Mardo is a New Zealand-based graphic artist, designer & art director, who's passionate about typography & photo-illustration among a million other things. Possessing a cross-disciplinary knowledge & years of experience, Mardo is an ideas person with an assortment of creative skills. He brings a fresh set of eyes to any project he takes part in. His first animated short film, In The Name of Art, was screened in 20 film festivals in four continents. He also directed music clips for Kiwi bands Opshop & Salmonella Dub.
Together with FHV/BBDO we’ve created a Tag-on and banner set for the Hi 4G promo broadcasted on Comedy Central. Michiel Baumgarten was responsible for the design of the characters, backgrounds and elements, which were then animated by Erik Thijssen. Since we're all huge fans, we loved being able to do a South Park animation… Yay for blood and gore and funnies!
