The World’s Favourite Number


Animation, Design, Illustration

After seeing the Marcus Chown animations I created for Faber&Faber, Bloomsbury Publishers tracked me down and asked me to create similar video to promote the latest book by bestselling author and Guardian math blogger Alex Bellos. Taking inspiration from his research into “the world’s favourite number” we worked together to create a simple script based around the number 7.

The animation was featured on BBC breakfast as well as the BBC website, the Guardian, the Metro and various other news sites.
