Xenos Hero 1920


When Persuade approached us to develop a fairytale for Xenos featuring an “ugly duckling” storyline we couldn’t wait to get started. A good beer was the perfect studio to create characters from otherwise static objects. Without using facial features they were able to create a lovable character and tell a story of a misfit becoming one of the guys in just 25 seconds. We want to say thanks to the amazing team working on this!
