La Linea

I watched Heidi on Netflix with my kids the other night, which they loved. It made me go down memory lane of shows and movies I used to watch as a kid. This one, La Linea is one I looked forward to every week. It is an Italian animated series created by the cartoonist Osvaldo Cavandoli.

The Bunt Machine

When you don’t micromanage a creative genius like Mac Premo and give the artist complete creative freedom to tell a short story about your service/product, this kind of beautiful result happens. Respect for the trust, WeTransfer. Hat tip, Mac Premo!
