The main characters, Barney, Pippa and Grampy were the first designs to be developed. These bold and unique creations, developed to the clients brief, set the style for the design of the other characters.
The textural and richly detailed backgrounds complement the stories and have a watercolour feel, through the selected colour palette. The world is expanded through Barney's wild imagination, which contrasts with the character's day to day surroundings.
