    Great doc! The motion graphics within are also brilliant!

  • Interesting timing now that Tobias has left the company. It’s really unfortunate as they seemed to have such a wonderful partnership…

    • ya i think theyre actually in a legal battle now with one suing the other

  • Rick Bruins

    Motion Graphics are killing it!

  • I really like how they talked about starting with the letters O and H . Neato
