Novelab proved its expertise in video games during its collaborations with Arte and Agath Films-Ex Nihilo for "Vandals", a game about the world of graffiti, and "Type:Rider", a journey into the secrets of typography. Another example of a project that shows the studio's diversity and creativity is the 2019 Virtual Reality experience "Fly" at the Saatchi Gallery in London, which connects the history of aviation with the current and future state of technology. Awarded at the Virtuality XR Awards in 2019, then at the Raindance Film Festival as well as Stereopsia in 2020, this immersive experience has been presented at various aeronautic shows and museums in the UK with success.
Our projects are renowned for their technical and artistic strengths and our clients include brands and corporations like Hermès, Sony, LVMH, Google, Ubisoft, and Publicis as well as French and international producers.
