Trump Facts Animated.

I don’t care who you are voting for or what your political agenda is, you have to admit Trump Facts is a pretty brilliant website from Cub. Why, because Trump sound bites make good fodder for these brilliant short little animations. Love him or hate him, you have to admit, the shit Donald Trump says on a regular basis makes for some interesting commentary, and Fraser Davidson has absolutely captured Trump in well crafted, well illustrated animations using Trump’s own sound bites. These are his word folks, there is no denying that Trump said this stuff, and something tells me in the next few months Davidson is going to be working hard to produce more of these. Click through to the site, or to Vimeo to see the entire series. Each one is less than 15 seconds long, so you can watch the entire series in a short amount of time.


You Owe Mercedes-Benz A Lot For That Beer You Are Drinking.

Update: Thanks Steve Savalle for commenting and setting the record straight on the story developers Fraser Davidson, and Tiny Toy Car. It’s great work from all of you.

 has uploaded a fun little spot for Tiny Toy Car outlining the history of the van, and how it all started as a rivallery between Daimler and Benz. Savalle came up with the basic story telling idea that was then fleshed out by Fraser Davidson, Steve Savalle, Mike Basilico, and Chris Naglik at Cub Studio, and Pluto. The clip takes a light hearted, fun approach to the history of the subject starting in the late 1800’s and rolling forward to today. I love how they tie it all to beer hauling horses, and a better solution to getting that beer across town. The spot takes a  stylistic approach to the animation  with a solid nod to a flatter design aesthetic yet still maintaining atmospheric depth and fresh look that really works. Since October is just a day away, and October means October Fest, next time you lift a beer give a toast to Daimler Benz.
