Native Have Got Xmas Wrapped Up



You Give a Little Love given a modern twist in BBC One festive idents

Native Have Got Xmas Wrapped Up

Native have just worked on the BBC Christmas Ident campaign, re-recording "You Give A Little Love" in a modern Christmas style. Each ident takes a festive pattern, and animates them with a playful touch. There are 5 different patterns, all with their own unique design and animation, taking cues from real wrapping paper textures.


The spots combine a mixture of traditional hand drawn character animation, 3D, and digital 2D animation, with each technique bringing a layer of subtle complexity. Director Piccadilly Curtains says: “There was no particular or single aesthetic that RKCR/Y&R or the BBC was after. Everyone involved was keen to explore a number of different and varied styles that reflect the enormous variation found on real wrapping paper designs. This meant I got to explore and try my hand at a range of design sensibilities, without repetition.”
