PETE CANDELAND SIGNS FOR PARTIZAN.
20 June 2019

Partizan have signed animation whizz Pete Candeland for commercial representation.

Well regarded in both TVC and promo circles, the Australian straddles multiple animation styles while also dipping his toe in live-action work. This willingness to stretch himself ensures Candeland stays at the top of his game.

Candeland's recent ads for Great Western Railway, for example, honour Eileen Soper's Famous Five illustrations through sophisticated, rollicking animation and an old-school sense of adventure.


Partizan's new man also has a knack for bringing more unconventional briefs to life and, as you can see from this Jack Daniels ad featuring a daredevil bee, he does so with a level of polish coveted by high-profile brands worldwide.


As for his promo work, Candeland has become something of a 'virtual band' specialist. He and Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett vividly established the group's gonzo aesthetic over a number of years, while this heavy metal effort is inspired by PC gaming juggernaut League of Legends.

As you can see, Candeland's grasp of CG animation ensures a slick trip to the underworld while doing the game's gnarly character designs justice.


For more on Pete Candeland, ring Partizan's Ailie Robertson or Duncan Gaman on 020 7851 0200.
