Feb - May 2014

As a contractor, I designed the characters and background for Akitoi, an educative tv series for children. The series was produced by Postdata and broadcasted in EcuadorTV by mid-2014.

The problem

Character design with local flavor

In Ecuador, children under 6-years old don't have access to educative content on free-to-air television. Because of this, the public broadcast station promotes content creation among national producers. Most of them are from the highlands, therefore their content reflects the culture of that region. This is why the main goal for the characters' design was to represent the identity of Ecuador's coast.

All Assets ready

After 2 months of work, I delivered more than 400 assets, including characters' views, facial expressions, props, and backgrounds. Because of the workflow, most assets were already on production.
