Creating a television star!

When the BBC were planning their schools programme "Numbers Plus", they decided to use Roamer as one of the main characters. This meant that they had to design a persona for the Roamer character, Trundle.

This is a record of the design process.

Iain Macdonald (Senior Graphic Designer) took the design brief to create a contemporary, slightly anarchic, streetwise persona for Roamer.

He produced a series of drawings.

These were discussed by the production team who decided to use elements of a couple of them.

Andy Lazell (BBC Visual Effects Designer) came up with the exact colouring, paints, finishes and materials.

Our media star - Roamer as Trundle.
Next stop Hollywood!
