The brief was to update some fairly dated lead characters that featured in an old version of EasiMaths.
We wanted a style that was edgy but also friendly enough for younger kids. These characters took a few iterations to get right but I wanted to make sure that we had the right balance and that they wouldn't date. Some fairly obvious Kung Fu Panda inspiration as well as the awesome Elliot Kid.
