Through studio 'ClockworkVFX' (clockworkvfx.com/live/portfolio/nike-acg/), I worked with UK based Art Director, Robert Northam, who created a storyboard for Nike ACG (All Conditions Gear). The concept is an abstract visualisation of the hyper speed terraforming of a planet. This animation is based on his original style board and enhanced with certain elements.
Essentially we are seeing a planet being born and evolving at hyper speed. The end result being the creation of the extreme alpine environments where Nike ACG products are used. The focus is on the formation of mountains and the planetary conditions that produce the adverse weather conditions in which Nike ACG products excel.
I got to work on this rocking re brand with the fine folks over at The Box / channel 4.
This is one of four (directors cut) versions of promos that are airing on the channel at the moment.
The concept was based on tattoo designs and motifs, as lots of bands have tattoos, we wanted to tattoo the channel from idents to OSP and thus created the visual language from where we developed the style for the new Kerrang!

ITV were after a distinctive and premium look for their new documentaries strand dedicated to the best in factual programming. Working alongside ITV's creative team we designed and created the strand from the ground up including the logo design, programme opener and bespoke endboards.
It's always fun to crack something open to see how it works inside and thats exactly what we got to do here. Gorgeously grainy macro photography reveals the intricate workings of a classic documentary film camera appropriately also shot on 16mm film. The footage was then graded at Smoke & Mirrors and edited by us in-house to create the opening sequence and on-air elements.
The sound design and music was created by long-term collaborator Kelpe featuring a deliciously dark blend of samples and synths to form a distinctive audio signature.
