The Kitchen’s diversely talented, and classically trained team - Animation Director Sam Burton, Character Designer Jacob Merrick-Wolf, and Jelly Illustration artist Chervelle Freyer on background/setting design - worked collaboratively with Specsavers’ in house creative team to reimagine this classic tale.
