Every couple of years, E4 run a competition where creatives can submit a 10 second esting (channel ident). Our entry for the 2015 contest, seen at the top of this post, started out as a random office whiteboard doodle.

Then I created a character and decided to go with it for our next esting submission. A variation of it ended up in the final version.

Comp 1 (0-00-00-00)

Today, we entered the finished esting into the competition. If we win or are ranked within the top 16, the ident will run on television later this year.
