We are so excited to have won three awards at this years IDI Design Awards. Our animated film "Saturday" won best digital animation and our identity work for Cavan Co.Council - "This is Cavan!" was highly commended. We also won Best Overseas Studio! There was lots of great work this year, so we are very honored to come away with an armful of trophies. A big thank you to everyone on the TWC team and all our vendors. Also a big shout out to Rory Hanrahan, Emma Conway and Martin Gaffney.
We are excited and honored that the Guardian is showcasing our animation 'Saturday' in their Beautiful Games art series. This is FA Cup weekend, and this animation takes you back (sort of) to this weekend in 1979. Creative Review have also posted the animation to mark the occasion. So its a double-header big honor weekend for us!

To celebrate the new year and start one of our resolutions (do more hands on printing) we decided to head to The Arm letterpress studio to print our cards. The idea behind the cards was a take on 12 resolutions for 2012. We had a great day and loved the printed results.
