We’re aware the digital industry lacks a bridge between new talent and professional agencies. To help graduate students take their first steps into the industry we started the Supremo Academy. This scheme gives new graduates the chance to work with us on real projects, with mentoring and pay included. We created a custom microsite with a vibrant theme and engaging animations to encourage students to get involved.
3D Brand Assets
We wanted the Academy brand to reflect the exciting work we do at Supremo, so we used a vivid palette and bold visual elements. We designed a series of circus characters to represent the students’ potential and the level of skill they can achieve. Then we transformed these characters into 3D animations for a richer experience.
Animations on Mobile
Because video files don’t always work well on mobile, our main challenge was to create animations that perform seamlessly on every device.
We solved this issue by creating PNG sprites for our characters. These are large files that show only part of an image at a time, reducing load time and bandwidth in line with mobile devices. Next we rendered the final appearance of our animations with Canvas. This made them look consistent across all browsers and devices.
We’ve added a section to showcase our graduates’ success stories. This features first-hand accounts of our past graduates’ experiences of the scheme and the jobs they’ve since progressed to. The section helps potential students find out what to expect when they work with us, and how they can benefit from the Academy.
