In 2010 we designed the trailer for TEDxAmsterdam. This piece came to attention of Chris Anderson, the international TED curator. He was impressed and asked us to work on the opening film for their ‘flagship conference’: TED2011 in Long Beach, California.

This year’s theme was “The Rediscovery of Wonder” and Chris’ briefing was plain and simple “…Give us a sense of wonder! It’s clear you know how to do that…”. We teamed up with some of our most talented friends and the result you can enjoy over here. Next to designing the official opening film for TED2011 we also created name reveal animations for every speaker at this global event such as Jamie Oliver, Antonio Damasio, Bill Ford and JR.

Designed, directed and produced by PlusOne.
