Indeed - smart & small
We had a pleasure in creating “Smart & Small” animated series for Indeed - the most comprehensive search engine for jobs - as a part of the “We help people get jobs” campaign.
Our host Denise shared small tips on how to write a Cover Letter, which words to use and which to avoid on your resume, she shared job search hacks and listed top skills to mention on your resume for different industries. All of these small changes can lead to big results in your career.
For the campaign we created a miniature world with 7 puppet-like characters to imitate stop-motion look and feel. Distinctive character design was inspired by prominent letter “i” from the Indeed logo. We used real-life materials - colored wood, fabric, paper and plastic - all that could have been used if creating miniature environment.
