Scotiabank – TFSA

This one of several whiteboard explainers I directed for the Scotiabank Canada site to educate their customers on a number of financial topics.

The whiteboard style was a perfect way to take a dry subject matter and lighten it with entertaining visual concepts.

Oddly enough I’ve found 3 separate companies online claiming this work as their own. I directed these spots at Global Mechanic working alongside a talented crew of illustrators, animators, producers and creative people.
