Together with fellow creative Gareth Howells, I designed a zero-cost animation to help fund the building of a new high school in Portobello, Edinburgh. The animation went viral, helping raise £42.5 million for the project, and £11 million for a new school building on Portobello High’s old site.Saint Johns.
A similar viral film was made to raise funds for an outdoor community pool in Tynemouth which has helped raise over £250,000.00.
"The breathing animation has been a huge success for the charity. As you can see here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov3NsKKCmnk it has had nearly 10 000 views on YouTube, so thank you again, for not only helping us, but helping thousands of other people out there."
