    Happiness Factory


Company / Institution / Agency:

  • PSYOP Inc.


    Imagine the world inside an average Coke vending machine. PSYOP created a magical land where deliciously twisted creatures labor to fulfill their destinies by infusing joy into each bottle of Coke. Through character design, development, and ani-mation, a whole cast and their story was brought to life.
