Ideas by Heart | September 23, 2010

Illustrator and advertising student Annika Bäckström was sweet enough to share with me this cute and imaginative stop-motion movie she created with fellow classmates Oscar Söderberg and Michael Sipos.

Annika says, "We wanted to show how we come up with ideas, and how we can make the world a bit more colorful with these ideas. Our goal is to be able to make advertising that comes from the heart, just so we can make people a bit more happy." 

Go take a look!
