Turn it up in 2020 with CBBC: BBC Creative

The Challenge

We collaborated with BBC Creative to create an exciting trailer to advertise CBBC’s new year content. The trailer needed to appeal to their young audience and get them excited for new and returning shows to the broadcast channel.   

The Solution

The concept of the 30-second commercial focused on people getting ready for the big show – new year, new content! We see guitars being tuned, dance shoes being laced up and chalky gymnast hands preparing to use the bars. 


We crafted a mix of striking illustrations, bold typography and video clips from CBBC shows – it needed to feel punchy and exciting but not too childish, so that it would engage the 6-12 year old audience. 


The fun visuals were paired with an upbeat music track from Rizzle Kicks, ‘Skip to the Good Bit’.
