Laura & Marz from Malta started their internship on the 5th September 2016. They were placed with mayamada, a new brand supported by the Prince’s Trust, and featured in publications such as lifestyle giants Vogue and GQ.
Influenced by anime and manga (Japanese animation and comics), mayamada’s products range from stylised casual clothing, to imaginative comics and even uniquely flavoured chocolate bars! Each product works to tell the story of the mayamada universe, a television network featuring an anthropomorphic cast.
After one week they were on their way, busy turning the imagination of their manager and mayamada co-founder Nigel into reality.
Marz worked on the concept designs & storyboards (above), while Laura converted the drawings into the digital format needed to create the animations (below).
During their internship they covered many areas including:
- Concept Art
- Character design
- Idea generation
- Reviewing animations and sounds
After 9 weeks Marz & Laura finished their project, creating mayamada’s first ever animation. The trailer (below) and intro will be showcased at mayamada’s next GamePad event in December.
