Nickelodion IDs featuring wintry creatures from Mochimochi Land!

I worked together with the Nick promotions team to concept and animate the first six IDs, with all the post-production work, including the sound and the flat animations, handled by Nick. The last four clips starring mochi-fied Nick characters were animated by the Nick team themselves using materials that I had made.

Mochimochi Land creatures and "mochi-fied" characters return to Nickelodeon for 2014 holiday IDs!

I created the hand-knitted elements used in these IDs, which were produced and animated by the Nick promotions team.

Based on CWC International's Nickelodeon Holiday 2013 Collaboration, Brooklyn-based designer Anna Hrachovec worked closely with the Nickelodeon promotions team to create a new updated series of festive idents featuring a mix of original woolly wintry creatures from a magical woolly world called Mochimochi Land, a place where knitted toys and people can live together in a spirit of tolerance, and mochi-fied popular characters from the brand-new hit Nickelodeon shows "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn", "Henry Danger", "Breadwinners" and "Max & Shred". Nick USA's "Happy Holidays from Nickelodeon" trailer has also been updated to include Nick's newest shows, including "Dora and Friends: Into the City!" and "Blaze and the Monster Machines".
