Hong Kong Designers Association has awarded 39°N with a Bronze medal in Motion Graphics, for our Christmas animation, Nicholas Was. We’d like to thank the HKDA, our parents, the flying spaghetti monster and of course Neil Gaiman, whose writing inspired our mixed media madness in the first place. I don’t want to jinx us, but I have a feeling there are more awards to come. Watch this space…

Our version of ‘Nicholas Was…’ found it’s way to Neil Gaiman and in his words
“ I was just sent this. WAY BEYOND AWESOME. Best Unauthorised Xmas Adaptation of one of my things EVER.”
