The Challenge

To create a teaser film to promote the National Maritime Museum’s exhibition Samuel Pepys Plague, Fire, Revolution.

The solution

Blast Design sourced the finely detailed illustrations to run across their top line campaign promoting and launching the exhibition. The illustrator, Bradley Jay, executed these exquisite illustrations for the the onsite branding, advertising promotions and exhibition publications. Together with Blast we separated the layers of each illustration in order to add dynamic movement and depth to the film. We then added impactful visual and sound effects to bring the exhibition to life.


Alongside the print materials, the video was seen across London in the lead-up to the exhibition and helped promote a successful showcase for the Museum.
