The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency Illustrations

July 24, 2010

I’ve recently finished the first season of HBO’s The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. I’ve been admiring the graphics during the credits, the other day I came across a book for the show with the same illustration style on the cover and decided I had to find out who was responsible for the beautiful images.

Animation and design studio, Airside, is the talented party. Inspired by traditional hand-painted African signage and vibrant African textiles, the studio used bold palettes and painted wood to make the animations textural and rich with color. I really appreciate when animators use mixed media to create unique graphics for their animation sequences. It adds another dimension to the work. Learn more about the project here.
