ICONOCLASH is a series in development. The series consists of short-form animated content pieces, that will be assembled fit-for-purpose, for broadcast, narrowcast, social, online and mobile, digital out of home, augmented reality and interactive print applications.
The pieces: segments, stories and narrative propositions; intend to ‘poke the bear’ and spur conversation, debate, reaction and interaction from every Australian. Controversial, sensitive and taboo topics are pragmatically ripped apart by a cast of hand drawn digital puppets who role-play, re-enact and re-imagine social conversations (small talk), expressions (social media) and interactions (groups and clubs) that might be happening right under our collective noses.
ICONOCLASH aims to explore:
How do we know what we know?
How do we think we know what we know?
How do we think we know what we think we know?
ICONOCLASH is possible due to Adobe CC particularly Adobe Character Animator.

Branding: Sam Maher
I wanted to create a new identity for my producing and writing activities. I went with postcards because I love receiving mail and with the rise of digital - rarely do; and then I augmented them. My business card I experimented with Aurasma and postcard with Layar.

WYNLEN HOUSE Interactive Rack Card
The gorgeous Bronwyn and Helen of Wynlen House Slow Food Farm and Learning Centre were invited by the Italian Slow Food Movement to their Conference in Turin in September 2016. They needed something fun and interactive, light and portable and easy to update in both omnichannel presentations and transmedia outputs, with a seamless optimised backend and a gorgeous digital interface. We wanted interaction data too, across numerous events, that could be validated within the integration by pulling data metrics across a suite of analytics tools. It also needed to look good in its print form, load digital content quickly and efficiently and have a easy-use interface to optimise experience for users with multiple digital literacy. The opportunity to test one of our new prototypes in an international and domestic territory was too good to pass up, so here is a new use of a developing interactive print/digital portal. This one is powered by Layar. Scan the front and back panels with your device and watch a video or press the buttons. Feedback is always wanted. Likewise we're always looking for Guinea Pigs wanting to do something new with brand narratives.
