The Albuquerque Comic Expo requested a video bumper to use for all their promotions. I came up with something that could be a celebration of comic book cultures past and present.

The goal for this bumper was to give ACE a strong connection to the comic book fan base. So, I built up their brand with comic book cornerstones: Krak, Pow, and Kaboom!
Frame by Frame
I wanted viewers to pine for the olden days of comics. So, when it came to animating the bumper, I did each frame by hand… on paper. That’s right, classic animation with no corners cut.
I didn’t just design one version of the ACE bumper. While using the same color and style, I developed multiple versions that varied in timing to allow ACE full control of where to place it in their promotions.
