Gabi jumped in and before you know it, we were all working on the design and production.

Result: We brought in some expertise from kimono specialists, a beautiful sound and music composition from Lynn helped bring it all together. Gabi worked with the team at Spine to bring the 2D art into easily animated rigs, and we’re really pleased with the first version.”
