Waymo

Say Hello

An animated world to visualize the future of transportation for the premier autonomous driving technology. 

We partnered with Waymo to help remind people that autonomous vehicles are more than just a futuristic concept, but a technology in practice that is bound to reshaped how we get around. We wrote endless scripts and use cases while creating a branded animation style comprised of geometric shapes, and simplified characters. We also developed a branded visualization of the Waymo AI technology  in use.

All roads lead to a not-so-far-off futuristic utopia where human and self-driving cars coexist in safety harmony.
