Here are my entries to a online design competition for a new logo to represent geo thermal energy (which involves pumping cold water deep down into the ground and recovering the hot water/steam generated in the process to make electricity and provide heating).

I've been working away over the last few weeks trying to get my animation for Empire Magazine's Done in 60 Seconds competition. My entry last year was Tron, which got to the final 20 which was great. This year I've tried to do a proper 60 second film, and its been tough work - so many things to draw, create, cut out, film, and edit!
I thought I would try puppets as my characters, as I assumed they would be easier. Oh no. So I had to design 10 or so characters in paper craft (cut out paper or card that you fold and cut to form a 3d physical model). So many pieces of paper cut up and glued together, but no cuts to me, which based on my track record is a surprise, so thats good news.
Once the characters were ready I filmed them on a green screen, then design and create all the backdrops, objects and ships that were needed in each shot. I ended up with about 50 shots, which I had to cut back to get the whole thing under 60 seconds.
I hope to upload a link to the video itself soon, plus templates of all the characters if anyone would like to make their own!
