Argentous Ident

After working on this project in the studio for the last couple of weeks, DeadPixels are pleased to share our latest piece of animation - a slow paced 30 second ident for Argentous, a London based investment consultancy.


DeadPixels were asked to create an animation that illustrated the various stages and processes that a lump of metallic ore must go through until it has been fully processed into a smooth silver liquid, which in turn could be cast into the shape of the Argentous logo.

We first see the lump of ore appear within a dark cavernous environment, we initially see it beginning to crack and break under pressure - and shortly after its molten core starts to seep out of the cracks. This overflowing liquid starts to collect as it runs through a serious of channels within the landscape, before it finally reaches the Ag logo mould.

Despite tight deadlines - this was a really fun and interesting project to work on that provided us with the opportunity to hone our Z-brush and Realflow skills, as well as finding workable solutions to a few tough technical problems that arose.

You can find more HD still from this project in our Gallery.

New Site

Welcome to the new Deadpixels website!

We recently found enough time to move off of our old website and finish our new site which will serve as our internet home for a while.

The new site will not only allow a permanent home for our blog, but has provided us with a better interface for updating the site and sharing our latest work with you. Through our site we will attempt to keep you up to date with progress on recent work, post our favourite designs and animations, share thoughts on new tech, games and other nerdy stuff... and generally all things Deadpixels!


Welcome and stay tuned!
