Kiya and the Kimoja Heroes

now on Disney+ and Disney Junior!

I worked on this project for 8 months in 2019 while working at Triggerfish Animation Studios in Cape Town. I continued work on this project while studying at Gobelins, and worked directly for FrogBox in Paris. I designed characters, costumes, props, patterns, hairstyles and countless elements for the series!

Kiya

I worked on Kiya's development, including her hair, pattern/design language, symbols, props, costume and poses!

Chicoleka

This little pet Elephant was a struggle to design! But my work really helped to define her shape as a recognizable African Elephant. She is fully my design! Her name also used to be Carmella. 

Jay

Jay used to be called Zane, and he used to have dreadlocks! I worked on Jay's development, including his hair, pattern/design language, symbols, props, costume and poses!

Disco Kitty

Disco Kitty changed over time, but I was in charge of designing her first version as a giant, adorable monster attacking Kimoja!

Pie Rat

Pie Rat is a cancelled character that I had the chance to design! I really loved this character and was very sad to see him go.
