Shotopop Studio

Shotopop est un studio de création qui ne cesse d'explorer de nouvelles techniques et univers graphiques. La production du studio fascine par la maitrise et l’association virtuose du dessin, de l'animation, de la photographie, du collage, du paper-art et du set design.

Originaires d'Afrique du sud et diplômés de l'université Pretoria (département design), Casper et Carin font leur premières armes à Londres, d’abord séparément, puis réunissent leurs talents sous une enseigne, Shotopop (2007), s’entourant progressivement de la crème de la crème en illustration et motion design. Audace, originalité et envie farouche de se renouveler, sont les mots-clés dans l’exercice de leur métier.

Leur univers sensible, ludique et prolifique a été mis au service d’agences de communication et de maisons de production pour la direction artistique ou le design graphique de marques (Asics, Anta, Converse...), groupes musicaux (Skunk Anansie), ou de publications.

En 2015, Shotopop a obtenu à Cannes 5 lions pour le film d’animation Rise (Nike) et en 2011, 2 lions de bronze dans les catégories Outdoor et Design pour leurs visuels (Anta).

Shotopop is a design studio that never tires of exploring new techniques and graphic worlds. Shotopop's creations fascinate by their mastery of drawing techniques and the blending of drawing with animation, photography, collage, paper sculptures in relief or set design.

Born in South Africa where they graduated from Pretoria University Design Department, Shotopop’s founders Casper and Carin started their company in London in 2007 after following separate paths. They integrated new talents and gradually became the “crème de la crème” in motion design and illustration, always keeping a spirit of renewal, originality and audacity in their craft.

Their perceptive, playful and poetical worlds have been put to work for communication agencies, DA design contracts for brands such as Asics, Anta, Converse), musical bands (Skunk Anansie) or publications.

In 2015, Shotopop was awarded 5 Cannes Lions for Rise (Nike) and in 2011 two bronze Lions (for Anta, in Outdoor and Design category).
