MOUNTAIN DEW

by ANDY BAKER

Andy Baker teamed up with BBDO NY to create a monumental summer campaign for Mtn Dew. Celebrating the entire U.S. of A., they developed an ambitious scope of work by creating 50 individual animated films for each state along with one cohesive national spot. 

Spreading the love across America, the animated films highlight the many iconic landmarks and symbols we all know and love (or will soon learn) that make each state it's own unique and cherished place. California has its surfboards and redwood trees, New York takes us over the Brooklyn Bridge, Tennessee has its music, and Pennsylvania has Ben Franklin and his trusty kite (to name a few). 

In addition to the films, “DEWnited States Collection” includes special bottle packaging illustrating the singular identity of each state. Gotta collect them all! Road Trip!

Ever since he can remember, London native Andy Baker has been obsessed with animation. From over-the-top films like Disney’s Fantasia to Sunday morning regulars Tom & Jerry, he was hooked. Having studied Fine Art in his formative years, Andy went on to pursue a degree in illustration and animation from Kingston University, tailoring his approach and finding his niche somewhere in between the two.

Shortly after graduating, Andy - along with some friends - formed multi-disciplinary studio This Is It Collective and started taking on commercial work. Their first collaborative project Viceworld, an energetic title sequence for VICE UK, landed This Is It Collective on the map for up-and-coming animators and gave Andy the support he needed to develop his craft.

Since then, Andy has collaborated with multiple artists and illustrators for clients such as Vans, Warner Brothers, Marmite, Ricard, Adidas & Asics. His character driven work and 2D cel techniques, combined with his use of bold color, liquid transitions and old school animation style make Andy’s range of work completely contemporary while remaining undeniably classic.
