Frankie and Michael (our production manager) were recently featured in the news as the creators of the first-ever Youth Olympic Games mascots: Lyo and Merly. Although much of our production process was kept under wraps due to the nature of the project, the mascots were recently unveiled at a press conference at the Singapore Youth Olympic Games headquarters.
Amanda Zhang from youth-oriented WhyOhGee (pronounced Y-O-G) website interviewed Frankie and wrote a great article about the creation of the mascots. I’ve reproduced it here for your convenience, or you can also CLICK HERE to read the article on its actual website.
