Birken Tree

Birken Tree is a regenerative business with an inspiring vision. Working closely with founders Rob & Gabrielle, I crafted an animated visual storymap to help share & communicate their journey.

The project started with a story-mapping workshop, from which a script was drafted. The visuals were then carefully crafted using a combination of animation, macro-photography, video & illustrations. Creating a rich, multi-layered, magical feel that encapsulated the Birken Tree brand.

My Background

After an MA in Digital Film & Animation, I cut my teeth designing motion graphics for the music, fashion & entertainment industries in London. Creating visuals for the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Vivienne Westwood & Cirque Du Soleil. After 6 years, I moved to Glasgow to work on an ambitious online educational project for Twig World as well as lecturing Visual Communication at Abertay University. From there my passion for visual storytelling led me to co-found & direct animation studio Playdead (now Revenant) for 7 years. Highlights included winning several Royal Television Awards, being nominated for 2 Scottish BAFTAs & designing the titles for Oscar nominated documentary Virunga.  After taking some time out to travel, I then relocated to the Highlands of Scotland in 2018 & set up Jonny Harris Design. With the simple aim of working closely with clients to create beautiful visual content that captures imaginations & inspires audiences.
