Made for Each Other

As part of Frito Lay’s “Made for Each Other” campaign, two Motionographer favorites have created two decidedly adorable mini-shorts about finding true love. Although they’re radically different in style, both spots pack a tidy narrative into their confines.

First up is “Two Hears Are Better Than One,” created by Nexus Productions’ Tom & Mark with illustrator Adrian Johnson.

Next up is the 3D complement to the first spot. “Love & Sockets” has Blacklist‘s David Lobser written all over it, from the outlandish characters to the expansive sets.

Both spots drive viewers to the Made for Each Other website, which is chock full of cute character design.
