SLACK // SPACESHIP

 

Slack approached us with a song from the 40s, the deep affection for high fives and the idea of building a spaceship as a conduit for amazingness. Mixing b/w and colour, traditional animation and 3D, we took these cuties to space to make some new friends. All kinds of people, on all kinds of teams, use Slack to do amazing things.
