Jamie Oliver title sequence for Channel 4

Recently screened on Channel 4 was the 2nd series of the food programme 'Jamie and Jimmy', featuring well known chef Jamie Oliver. I was asked to contribute to the title sequence by designing name plaques that pop up revealing the celebrities taking part in the cookery show. The theme I was given was British fairground so I looked at lots of lovely, old, hand-painted signs.  I couldn't use actual fonts because of copyright so I created my own as well as hand drawn elements:

Here's a still to show how they featured in the final animation:

It is a very minor element of a lovely animated title sequence created at Picasso Pictures, directed by Jens and Anna which you can view here.
