Chris Packham’s Animal Einsteins is a 6 x 1hr factual series, which was first aired on BBC2 in January 2021. It showcases amazing animal intelligence – from mathematical masterminds and amazing architects to sneaky con artists and clever communicators.

Working closely with the producers and editing teams, we developed a unique and quirky visual identity for the programme, and a full graphics package that included a title sequence, animated maps and locators, and a number of explanatory sequences for each episode that helped visualise these animals’ amazing intelligence.

“It was a pleasure to work with Shy Guys. They produced a range of innovative graphics, animated maps and explainer videos for the series, always on time and with all the deliverables required. They responded quickly to make amendments and were really amenable if our requirements changed.”
