There’s a sense of déjà vu in the studio after hearing that Jumbla has picked up more animation industry accolades, including two Summit Creative Awards and one BassAward.
Last year at the Summit Creative Awards, we collected a brace of silver awards for our ‘Polished Man’ and ‘CADET’ entries, created on behalf of YGAP and Deakin University respectively. This time around, our collaboration with Axis Animation on ‘Clique’ for BBC Three received a silver award, while ‘Blackstone’ for Odyssey won bronze.
Meanwhile at the 2017 BassAwards, Clique was rewarded once again with bronze in the ‘Best Series Titles’ category.
Clique - BBC Three, SCA Silver award and BassAwards Bronze winner
Working alongside Axis Animation, Jumbla was asked to create the opening sequence for Clique - a six-part TV series airing on BBC Three in the UK. The show is about “the different ways ambition plays out in young women at university,” according to writer Jess Brittain.
Jumbla embraced the concept with an abstract video featuring wandering pixels, which sporadically coalesced to reveal portraits of young women on a night out.
Jumbla Creative Director Oz Smith said it needed to be “colourful and glamorous,” yet “brooding and sinister” at the same time.
Blackstone – Odyssey, SCA Bronze award winner
This cinematic for Odyssey was created to promote a new video game called Blackstone.
We were given a lot of creative freedom by the client, and proposed the idea of Blackstone being born from a bolt of onyx crystal.
“The project served its purpose really well,” said Odyssey’s product manager Richard. “It visually impressed and roused lots of curiosity.”

BassAwards wants to reward the best motion graphics, animation, and broadcast design from around the world.
