Microsoft needed a digital presence on its 11 Times Square sales office. They chose to design a large cube (26' by 26' squared) with digital screens that would wrap around its face.

The Microsoft Brand Team and Microsoft Production Studios approached me to help create some animations based off of my illustration style. We partnered with the talented people of Loaded Pictures in Seattle to help us bring the cube to life.

We also had large digital screens inside the building that we would run the same animations on flat surfaces. This also included a 3 story tall digital screen on the upper floors.

I created original illustrations and help set the scenes for the animations.

Soon after the cube was live and running our content I was flown to New York to see the work for myself up close and personal. I was thrilled to see people on the street filming and point to the giant cube with my work. I was tempted to say "I made that!", but decided that I should be more professional and just watch silently.

During my one and a half days in the city I made sure I went and saw each landmark on my own. Unfortunately I didn't see King Kong.
