While digging around in my client files the other day I came across these style frames I created for VH1 a little while back. I was hired to create the digital boards for their new television lightswitch, essentially working on sequences and mapping out motion to stylize their bumpers and logo spots. A lot of these are super early in the process, rough stuff to catch a style even before I had the logo. Experiments, really. Lost relics.
Some are better then others, but early on I really wanted to push some retro television styles into this, and try to create a flavor of television design from the late 70s and early 80s. Spectrums, lens flares, space stuff, all the things I remember seeing on tv when I was a kid. I wanted it a bit rough and textured as well. Complete with slight film skips and dust. Authentic, ya know?
Most of these went unused and the final product was predominately my spectrum lines all animated up. Really cool stuff, and put together by the talented folks at Laundry. Check it out. Real pretty, love the lighting they did.
When I came across the images above I was reminded of the original vision I had. Something vintage, oldschool tube television from back in the day. Had a great time working these up.
