Peppermelon at Playgrounds 2012
characterdesign: More names online, Sunday 23 September
PepperMelon was founded in 2007, by Fernando Sarmiento and Tomas Garcia. Initially an ardent duo, they quickly realized their capacity to grow and put their aspirations down to practice-- the very ones that define their distinct style today. Into the fray came Juan Molinet, alongside Martin Dasnoy and Ignacio Godoy, a group genuinely capable of capturing the creative atmosphere storming in the MelonLab and pouring it into production. The studio jumpstarted to a more serious profile; by then it made no sense restraining their potential to local borders. In less than a year, their name had ventured out to the world and established an international clientele, including MTV, Nickelodeon, Nike and Cartoon Network.. http://www.peppermelon.tv
