A collection of styleframes that never made it into production; my little graveyard of design.
Produced at Elastic, pitch frames for the title sequence of Joss Wheldon's The Nevers on HBO. My idea centered around the idea of unveiling what’s beneath the surface, where scenes would connect seamlessly to each other and the visuals represented 19th century London and key narrative motifs. For instance, the shot of the portrait of a woman would transition into a scene of the woman submerged in water, and the carriage wheel would turn into the face of Big Ben. Creative direction by Hazel Baird.
Promo package pitch frames for FX mini-series, Mrs. America, starring Cate Blanchett. The show tells the story of Phyllis Schlafly and the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) in the 70's. My direction centred around the idea of women's hands and using it to juxtapose women's expected domesticity with moments of protest that the ERA has come to be connected with. This was to be cut with beautiful slow motion film footage of flowers exploding, which symbolised the change that was so sought after by the courageous women fighting for the ERA.
Produced at Method for the television show, The Boys. The show is set in a world where superheroes abuse their powers. These were designs for the title card, which would act as a super quick stinger. They were inspired by punk-rock of the 70s, to play off the rebel-nature of the superheroes. I also refined and polished up their existing logotype, keeping the grunge aesthetic. Creative direction by John Likens.
Produced at Rare Volume for Bank of America. The brief was to represent real-life financial data in a creative and illustrative way, for screens in all their branches nationwide. The data could be updated dynamically, with the graphics changing to reflect it. Creative direction by Jonathan Kim.
Produced at Rare Volume for Reuters. The brief was to design an app introduction and motion instertials for Reuters TV, combining the use of their news footage and logo. The news footage would be updated regularly, chosen by what was current to that day's events. Creative direction by Jonathan Kim.
