BBC Radio Scotland — Tartan Toyboys | 1995

D&AD Silver Award for best use of typography in a TV advertising campaign

Director: Barnbrook | Agency: Faulds | Animation: Barnbrook & John Hollis

One of three films commissioned for BBC scotland advertising their spoken word radio station. We were given real soundbites and simply asked to animate ‘something’ along to them. The animation for this film was created using conventional rostrum techniques. The conversation featured is between two women who are going to see some male strippers called ‘The Tartan Toyboys’. The typography is heavily influenced by the graphics used on prostitutes cards put up in telephone booths around the UK.creating a cheeky, naughty feeling to the film.
