The Ark reveals new ident by Cartoon Saloon

Created and sponsored by Academy Award-nominated animation studio Cartoon Saloon, The Ark is thrilled to reveal our brand new ident capturing the joy of children’s creativity.

To produce our beautiful new ident, The Ark approached Cartoon Saloon, the Kilkenny-based studio that brought you The Secret of Kells, Wolfwalkers and, most recently, My Father’s Dragon. Tasked with capturing the joy of children’s creative experiences at The Ark, the Cartoon Saloon team consulted with The Ark Children's Council to develop and deliver a colourful celebration of our work in this delightful thirty second animation.

The Ark is incredibly grateful to Cartoon Saloon for sponsoring the project and we would like to say a huge thank you to Giovanna Ferrari, Walter Giampaglia, Jason Tammemagi, Katja Schumann and Antonio Caamano for their stellar work on the ident. In particular, we would like to thank The Ark’s former board member and Cartoon Saloon co-founder, Tomm Moore, for his support in bringing this project to life.

The Ark also extends our sincere thanks to musician Paul Griffiths, who provided the accompanying music.

Take a look at the gorgeous animation below and keep an eye out for it on our ‘Live from The Ark’ streamed productions, including The Henry Girls’ Tracks in the Snow, which is available to stream now until 31 December.
